South Coast (UK) Sailing in Winter?

Anybody sail on the Solent in winter? I have a Colvic Watson 24 on the River Hamble and am thinking about going to her for a couple of weeks in February-March to get out on the water. (Pilothouse is the open-aft type.) Realistic? Thanks in advance...

If the weather is good sure..
I remember a January sail from Poole to Weymouth around 1988.. great sail with clear skies and a full moon.. tied up on the quay around 3am and went to bed.
Got woken at 0700 by customs officers banging on the hatch.. it seems folk who sail in winter must be upto no good.. they searched the boat throughly then questioned my motives.. What can I say.. it seemed like a good idea.
