Ever since the turn of the century, the Solent has provided those who sail with a wonderful natural playground. It is also an area steeped in history and despite its importance as a centre of maritime commerce, there are many secluded creeks and inlets where wildlife abounds and ancient buildings hold the secrets of ages past.

This book is written for those with an interest in the environment, history and personality of the Solent's shores from Bembridge to the Needles on the Isle of Wight and from Hurst Castle to Chichester on the mainland coast.

John Glasspool has sailed and explored the Solent mainly in the smaller shallow draught boats he loves so much.

As a working journalist he is based in Southampton and lives in the small town of Titchfield close by the sea.
