Ryde Sands

The sands off Ryde on the Isle of Wight go out a long way, I recall years ago keeping well north to avoid the sands which had caught a number of boats in the Round the Island race

 While keeping yachtsmen on their toes the sands are great for bucket and spade visitors, with literally acres of clean soft sand which contributed to the establishment of the resort in Victorian times.

And is the reason that they built the 745 yard long (681 meters) peer so that boats and visitors could come and go at pretty much any state of tide.
