Alderney 2016 -

The theme for this years party has now been "revealed" https://www.facebook.com/Alderney-We...83106/?fref=nf

We (family of four with two children) plan to go and camp Thursday to Sunday, Of course it will be weather dependant. I know a few other Ribbers who are planning on coming along from the Solent, we'll be leaving from Poole so anyone who'd like to join us would be warmly welcomed. There are other options other than camping but it seems important to book early as this is a very busy week on the Island.

Our outward crossing is planned for the 1st August and we will be returning on the 11th. Hope the weather is ok

If someone is planning on crossing the Chanel on those days then let me know

We will be departing from Southampton.

cgf10 runs a 8.6 Shearwater cabin rib, not sure what I'm taking as yet. There will be others too could be on different days.

We normally all run together but only stay for a few days, but last year was so good myself and a guy called Paul are taking our families out for longer.

I'm sure we did a video of one of the trips and to show the investment from the Alderney State into the campsite, i'll have a look to see which one it was

Here you go, this was Andre's Parker 750 and you can see cgf10, Trevor G and others in the vid.

I do have more footage of the campsite and toilets/facilities if you need it...

I'm hoping that here will be other ribs heading out on the Thursday from either Poole or The Solent that we can cruise in the company of. Anyone thinking of coming over on this day please make yourself known. Channel virgins welcome too - it's a great opportunity to tick off that trip!!

I think you will find Alderney is a bit more than 10 miles from Cherbourg. More like 25.

We should be going on this as well - not sure of dates yet when we'll cross but we'll try and buddy up with someone else going for the company.
