Beaulieu River And Bucklers Hard

At long last the sun came out, the wind dropped and Starlight pulled out of her Lymington berth for a birthday celebration.

The predicted sunny day started with a sea mist that the sun quickly burn away to reveal the Solent in all her beauty.

Our group of friends & family enjoyed a bucks fizz with breakfast on board as we pulled out of Lymington bound for Cowes and an early lunch at the Folly Inn. The flat seas allowed us to show our new Phantom 40 flybridge yacht at her best with a spirit finish at 25knts to the entrance of the Cowes river Medina.

Lunch at the Folly Inn still rates as the best value lunch stop on the Solent. With excellent harbour masters there to help you moor your vessel, not that our Solent Charters need any help !

A quick blast across the Solent brought us to the entrance of the Beaulieu River and the most beautiful of river cruises up to Bucklers Hard. A walk around this historic location with a glass or ice cream was very pleasant indeed.
