I see the French version misses out the bit where the big French catamaran twatted a rock on their way back out

Matt, I have added your well penned extra two paragraphs to our page.

I've got some ideas brewing for some group photos, which could look pretty good if we can get all the boats together or even rafted up.

If we wanted some taken from shore, so they include everyone, there are a couple of really good photographers on the island.

Would you or Matt be prepared to be the Jersey organiser? With so many boats potentially coming up the way this year it might be good to have a definitive list of contact details and make firm plans for departure and route.

Sounds good I hope some of them will exclude everything except Ospreys!!

That looks like a good option too, I'm sure they'd oblidge if we let them come with one of us around the island

I wouldn't be sure if there will be any going via Jersey tbh. we won't unless those we're in company with want to, or unless Matt is joining us. The issue with the French is they can't go more than 6 miles from a shelter. The two places where French water only extends out six miles is to Echrous (12m from coast so always 6miles from shelter) and at Alderney itself, like we did in our Pro a few years ago. They may all launch from Carteret or something, there's already one provisionally coming from there and joining us en route.

Also the possibility that my Physics teacher (he also built some of the London underground) will be in Guernsey around this time, and he may be willing to have a run up for a night or a just a few hours. The SB&R crew seem intent on doing their own thing at the moment, I don't think they heeded Tim's warning to divide the current numbers by 3

I was certainly thinking some photos from the shore. Perhaps from Tete de Judemare with Les Etacs in the background might be good, and also possibly from Essex Hill with Raz and the Race beyond. Someone with a half decent camera would be fine. I'm sure one of my parents would do it for us.

I'm sure we can sort something out. My departure times are quite flexible, so I will choose the best weather and tide window to come up, which won't necessarily coincide with everyone else though.

I agree

I do offer a club discount on new boats, but you already have to be in the club to obtain it.....








*for anyone reading this, this is a joke, I don't offer deals!*

Oh yes we did If anything the numbers are increasing but I'm well aware of the unreliability of people once the event gets closer.

Nothing against you guys it's just the feeling is that part of the fun is the planning and getting there under our own steam rather than tagging along. If we end up going to one of the other islands the same weekend we'll try to run past and say hello, otherwise I'm sure, and hope, we'll cross paths sometime during the year.

We're also working on a long weekend based around Poole early August so if anyone is around give me a shout. The plans will be developing on the sb&r forum over the coming months. Otherwise look out for me around the Solent during the year
