We have uploaded some of our photos to our web site, if you would like to add your own to make it a comprehensive gallery then please feel free to send them to me.

I think is my favourite: http://www.alderneymarine.com/images...a/PICT2211.JPG

Great effort on everyone's part, looking forward to doing the reverse run and a repeat.

No problems from me Roy we were only a few miles from Home when you went so not a problem we had clear weather and knew you would be fine.

Hope your son has a great time in Bali .

It was nice when the plane flew over they were staying in the same guest house as Jabs and my self so a real nice touch to get the fly by.

Thanks for organising the trip Tim, it was reassuring to know that you were close-by and could see us on the radar in the fog and I know it must have taken a lot of orgainising behind the scenes that we didn't see

Thanks to everyone else as well and I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. I will try to post some pics some here of us going out and arriving at Braye. None the following day as everyone seemed to be very much under the weather and doped up with stugeron tablets

Here you go http://www.photobox.co.uk/album/131798671

Same as everyone else - Thanks Tim, Malthouse and everyone else! Richard and I had a great time . I'm hoping to do the run again for the last weekend of Alderney Week - Friday 7th Aug to Sunday 9th Aug, and camping (as accomodation will be a nightmare) - so if anyone else is up for it I'll start a new post....
Here's our few pictures
Mustering at Fairway Buoy x 2, Floptilla Approaching Alderney x 2, Martini II

Nice picture and reports, I've really enjoyed following this thread.

One thing I would like to ask however is regarding the Fog. Would you have been safe to cross if you didn't have RADAR, and would you have still gone ahead with the crossing?

Sorry it's taken so long to post: you go away for two days and what do the kids do to the computer? Don't know but at least it's working now!

Thanks all for a hugely enjoyable week-end. It was good to get reacquainted with old friends and meet so many new ones and to share an adventure together.

A number of photos have already been posted but here are some more:

1. Mustard
2. DizzyLizzy, Rapid, Cookie Jar and Cin Sirrah at the Fairway Buoy
3. Rapid, Cin Sirrah and Ditherer
4. Blow N Away in the fog

1. Cookie Jar and Cin Sirrah
2. The Floptilla heads back 1
3. The Floptilla heads back 2
4. The Floptilla heads back 3
5. Jet skiers safely back in Yarmouth

The last three sets of pictures are all compressed (problems loading the full size ones!). If anyone wants full res copies, please let me know and I'll be happy to e-mail them.

Thanks again to all those who organised things both at the mainland end and at the Alderney end where the warm welcome was hugely appreciated. We’ll try and do as well on your reciprocal run. Thanks also to all those who came along and made the weekend so enjoyable.

Finally: 191 litres of petrol Yarmouth – Alderney – Yarmouth. Who said that bigger engines were less economical!

David and Ginny

No
The forcast gave a hint of mist or fog not as fog bank.
