Priory Bay

Anchoring FREE

Priory bay was another early anchoring destination for us when we started off on these humble little adventures. Sailing to Priory Bay from Southampton took you right across the Solent, past some interesting forts in the water and into what was, in the Autumnal months, a beautiful, fairly quiet spot for the night.

Now when I say 'quiet' there was very few other boats there as the picture will attest to, but it's an entrance to the Solent, one of the busiest waterways in the country, so you do get a decent amount of swell from large vessels passing in the distance.

The holding was good, however, the anchor dug into a sandy sea bed, and there's a beautiful beach to go and explore too.
