Re: IOW festival, mooring up the river medina?
The first one is a journo shot the other one was done for me by someone who flies over the island regularly. If you get ashore at high tide, getting back to the boat across the mud anytime before the next high tide presents a problem.
The view from the festival side won't be up to much, but on the opposite side is a picnic site which becomes an alternative camp for those without tickets who just want to listen - you can walk down there from the quay - it usually turns into quite a travellers encampment.
