During my trip to England to get my Yachtmaster qualification I saw so many cool boats it wasn't funny. The Solent really is the home of Yachting.
Here's some pictures:
An Artemis 20 Adaptive keel boat.
A passenger hovercraft
"T2" the British AC 45
"M33", "Victory", and "Warrior" at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard
A DUCK WW2 landing craft
"Cutty Sark", the fastest tea clipper ever.
A Mod 70 trimaran
"Avenger". The first planing dinghy ever
