Casquets Lighthouse today

Stunning day for a bit of ribbing, did the 45nm trip up to Alderney from Jersey, had a beer and a spot of lunch outside the Divers. Then Malthouse and myself set off on the 15nm round trip to the Casquets Lighthouse marking the southern entrance to the Western Approaches.

Had a scout around to see what might be involved in landing there but the sharp bits of granite steaming through the water at 5-6 knots kinda made me think twice.

Must have been there 15-20 mins before we noticed there was 2 or 3 guys out there giving it a coat of paint, nice view from their office window

Looks like you had fantastic conditions. It's rare to find the swinge looking so calm, but bliss when it is. You'll have to ignore my pm yesterday, I thought you were going up at the weekend. Lets hope the weather cotinues like this for the summer.
