    It is described as

    ..good shingle beach from Pagham to Selsey Bill. This stretch of coast, 21 miles long, formed landing area E, to be used by the forces from Le Havre.

    That is fairly long barge ride from Le Havre. How far is it, 65 miles or so?

    That ride would be measured in fathoms. :)
