|Of all the
various methods of crossing the Solent to the Isle of Wight, Lymington to
Yarmouth is perhaps the least obvious. Lymington is tucked
away in the New Forest and is miles away from Portsmouth and Southampton,
both literally and conceptually. The route is operated by the three
so-called C Class vessels - Cenred, Caedmon and Cenwulf - which celebrate
their 30th birthday this year. Both harbours nestle in yacht
marinas which lend a real seafaring air to the experience.
This is more of a glide than a sail to the Isle of Wight.
