Sailed back from Poole last Friday via the North channel at Hurst and passed through what I suppose is called the Trap. We were very glad it was calm since the tidal stream was formidable ( and flooding). Does anyone have any advise on passing through this bit of water when it is a bit rougher. Should one pass closer to Hurst castle ?. We sail a Jaguar 22, so it would't need much wind to make it exciting!
