This 3D chart focusses on the northern part of the Isle of Wight, the Solent strait and the English coast between Milford on sea and Hayling Island.
The Solent divides the mainland from the Isle of Wight. It is a major shipping route for passenger, freight and military vessels. It is also an important recreational area for yachting and hosts Cowes Week annually.
The Isle Of Wight is probably the most recognisable island shape in the world, probably because of its popularity as a recreational area being so close to London. The Solent, with some treacherous areas like the Needles channel and the various banks are the subject of many tales and adventures. As a 3D chart this is a very popular piece.
