Sorry, I was away at the boat this weekend.... Well if you have three months coupled to a cat, then you will find enough rivers and estuaries to keep you occupied....
My personality is that I am interested in new horizons... so I tend to move on. Therefore as you are about to explore England
, I would suggest that it depends on how well you already know it. The East coast
from South England
to the Tay was where the Roman established settlements. I personally am interested in history
so my timetable would be predicated on "onshore" interests and when sated would meander on.
Here in Venezuela
I have the weather
, tropical islands and as such my sailing is geared to lazy days as generally the onshore does not match the offshore
. When I lived in Denmark
the onshore in Denmark
as well as Norway
matched the sailing possibilities, therefore we tended to sail to a destination
So really its horses for courses.... How far up are you thinking of reaching?
For all the places in the world that I have lived and viewed and sailed.... None, absolutely none have every matched the beauty of the west coast
from Largs north. However assuming that you will be returning to Brighton. ( I used to live there..Not far from the marina). Why not take a month.... to say Edinburgh and two months meandering down poping into those places that while going North, over a few pints of bitter at the places you stopped, your enquires of the locals gave you local gems, which in Edinburgh(My home town) over a couple of ales and scottish "nippy sweeties' you can parse and select the best for your return journey.
In any event I am sure you will have a surfiet of opportunities. I will be interested in knowing how it finally worked out.
