London, England to Bergen, Norway

We took the transfer from London to Southampton, boarded the Ruby Princess, and off we went!
We have a day at sea to rest from the London tours.  The Navigator told us

"Once Ruby Princess has slipped her last mooring line we will thrust off the berth and begin our 26 nm (nautical miles) journey down the Solent River.  On our way we will pass two sharp bends, Brambles and Calshot, leaving the Isle of Wight to starboard.  Soon after we will disembark our pilot at the Nab Tower, when clear of the tower we will set course through the English Channel to our next port of call, Bergen."
