Final set.
Loaded up with fuel and passengers from outisde Mainbrayce chandlers and evidence of the thick fog in Braye Harbour when we arrived.

Well done to Malthouse for encouraging the trip and organising the meal. I think I can still taste the pepper

The weather looks like a repeat of the crossing I had earlier this week, (Monday & Tuesday - see Dolphins in the Channel ), in that it was flat calm going out.... and a little bumpy for the return.

I would be very interested in actual fuel consumption figures for various types of boat/engine for this trip if anyone would care to post. I will be re-filling my tank tomorrow so I will be happy to post mine too, once I know.

Anyone else interested?

Anyway, hope all goes well for the trip back.

Just got home to the family in Cowes in desperate need of a shower!

As our VHF aerial broke off, when we fell off the top of a particularly steep wave off Alderney, we could not send our thanks to Tim and all the other organisers and helpers when we parted company at the Needles. So, many thanks for all your organisation!

I hope you are all over your hangovers!!

Andy and I had a great time so same time next year then....

Good to meet you all!!

Ditto the above - Good fun with a good bunch of folk.

Optimax control registers total Journey - 218 miles - used 228 litres. Seems about right?
Northney Hayling to Alderney via Needles.

Definatley used more fuel going than coming back? Rapid happily glugged the extra 75 litres I took over with me but was full after 60 litres when I got back.
