Ok every one who is coming we depart Needles safewater mark 1030 .
arrive Alderney 1330 ish cruising speed 22 knots .
Those that want to speed across at a faster speed let me know as we can organise two groups.
any volunteers to shadow the jetskis please.

Am keeping a eye on the weather nothing accurate enough until the week before.
If you have not added your name to the list there is plenty of time, important thing is to book your accommodation.

Apologies for the double post but I'd like to do Sark as well, but I need to tag it on the end of the Alderney trip i.e. Alderney Fri/Sat/Sun then Sark Mon 26 & Tue27 then back to IOW on the Tuesday, but I would like to do this in company if thats possible. Regards Chris

I just wrote my long range forecast for the local paper, obviously just a rough outlook for the last two weeks of July, but all indications are very good.

You wont get a really reliable forecast for here until the Wednesday. So long as there is no wind due from 0º and 90º and no residual swell from the Atlantic you should be fine.

When I came back from Dartmouth this week it was a lumpy F5 on the English side and exactly half way I drove out into bright sun and a cheeky little F3.

Thanks, it looks as if DHD might be coming now, so we'll need 3 rooms.
