Another potential participant

Interested in spending a week in the Channels Islands.
3rd/4th ideal for outward passage.
Volantis is a 6.4m Rib-X
Haven't done a cross channel under power before so traveling in company would be a great help.
Hope to clarify plans over next couple of days. Will keep watching this thread.
Cheers, Ian

As far as I know, Alex and Paul are taking 2 x 585's either today, Sunday or Monday and are camping in Alderney with their families for just under 2 weeks.

cgf10 and Trevor G are probably going out in 2 x Shearwater ribs on Thursday or Friday (depending on the weather) and coming back probably on Sunday.

I think Neil Harvey is going to come out whenever cgf10 and Trevor G go - but again it will depend on weather etc.

I've a very narrow few days off so weather permitting have a borrowed rib launching Southampton Thur night to cross Friday and back Sunday.

Nelson in stormxhaser may leave early this week and run down the French coast arriving about Friday.

There's therefore a plan B for me and Mrs Daniel to catch them up jump aboard Friday.

I've come to the conclusion I'm trying to do too much, too quickly. Rather than rush preparations I intend joining my wife on the ferry this time.
Would be nice to perhaps meet some of you over there and pick your brains

Have a good voyage.

Ian

Hi All, Paul & myself are still planning on leaving tomorrow morning and returning on the 11th.

We are happy with the weather so everything is go

The others will probably keep an eye on the weather and decide later in the week which day they'll cross (prob 4th or 5th).

We will have limited internet access etc so I'll catch up with this thread when we get wifi

Safe crossing you lot! see you at the campsite

Alex, where are you camping? We're currently in Barfleur & "might" bob round for a night
