I can't remember a busier weekend on the radio in the Solent.
On Saturday I personally saw two yachts aground on the Brambles and saw a helicopter winching the crew off a 40 footer which the coastguard warned was sinking.
On Sunday I heard a distorted report being radioed in of a 40 ft Bavaria inverted and drifting down the Solent. I'm not convinced of the authenticity of this, however since it didn't seem to be followed up by anyone else.
By the way, given it's location and, more importantly, how many boats run into trouble there, why isn't the Brambles Bank more clearly marked?
