Cheers

Definitely. The only problem may be stowage space for all the clothing and equipment you would need.

Looks a Great trip! Not bad fuel economy either. Just over the 1.1L mark. Must be chuffed with that I'd have thought. Presumably lucky with cruising weather.

Just grabbed the track for the return journey from my plotter. Don't have the first bit between Paris and Port de L'Ilon though.

How long did the trip take you from the sea to Paris? Sounds like a great trip
