The links to Alderney point you in the right direction for accommodation, Martin can also give you details of places to stay.


Fuel wise we were fine last year although beaware of the containers used better to bring your own, as had a couple of boats come up with alarms regarding water in fuel.

Is Avocet and Mustard coming again ?

If we could start to make a list so we have a rough idea on numbers

been to alderney once under rag power from the solent. took forever, and it was a night crossing with a heavy squall.

Thread has gone a little bit quiet, just wondering as Tim's proposed date is the first weekend of school holidays is it putting people off making a commitment to the trip?

We had a great time last year & with an extra day this time it should be even better.

Still going on those dates Paul and weather dependent as alway's but a small group will be just as fun as a large group.
Plenty of time yet for people to decide if worth going .

Hi Tim
We are hoping to come along again this year - weather dependent of course!
I think there will be three of on board - me, Phil (my brother) and Richard (12)again.
Looking forward to it already!
Trevor.

Hi Trevor
Looking forward to it and the extra day will be great, a mixed bag going this year Motor Cruisers x 3 ribs x3 and PWC x 3 have so far showed an interest.

I am going if the weather is ok and would be nice to have a large group as last year and great for those first time across the channel without fog this time though please.

But big or small a great adventure anyway and Martin Malthouse and Erin's Mum pulled all the stops out and made us feel so welcome it would e a shame not to go again and see more of the Island.
Tim

I have no doubt that the same welcome will await you on your return visit. Naturally there should be a jersey contingent again as well. I'm sure there'll be a bit of interest from a couple of other Jersey boats this year to join Martini and myself.
