Excerpt from Black's Guide to the Isle of Wight: Including Sailing Directions for the Solent
An entirely new section is now added in the shape of practical directions for boat-sailing about the Solent, as it is believed that not a few amphibious tourists will appreciate some ... such guidance on sea as well as on land. This article has been written by Mr. C. F Abdy Williams, m.a., a yachtsman familiar with these waters, and revised by rear-admiral Hamilton Earle.
These special articles form digressions from the course of our description, which, beginning with Ryde, as the place most likely to be visited, conduct the reader all round the island to leave him at Newport, its central point, whence he can easily reach any part that may have been neglected.
