Brambles is your boat the same one as in the Rib mag article this month looks great! I did suggest to the wife we got one last night to which she replied we are not towing that around & it will not fit on the drive!
Regards
Nick

Just guessing but I reckon the confused water was off Barfleur. Where did you eat in St Vaast, Cafe du Port or up market in Hotel du France. By the looks of the champagne it was the latter!

Been through Barfleur a few times and it can be a slow plod.

Cheers

Mark

confused water was encountered northwest of Cape de la Hague. Speed down to 16-20kts at worst point.

Not to sure where we eat . Great little port well worth a visit

Not us, I'm affraid. By 8pm on Saturday we were starting to construct four very large hangovers in a resturant in Cherbourg!

Thanks (on behalf of Ashled, who is the one with the big cheque book) for you comments on the boat. We have been very impressed with everything about her. She is a massive improvement over last seasons Ribtec - and that was a very good boat.

Attached are a few more photos from the trip.
