Good post on SB&R 'Able Seaman' martini . Might be worth checking the dates of Alderney week. If too many people turn up, accommodation could actually end up being a real problem.

Amazing how much panic can be generated about a fairly straightforward crossing. I would understand it if they were all in sailing boats where strength of tide really matters, but not motor boats. Having said that, I remember last years trip to Poole (via the big boat in my avatar) where the marina gin drinkers couldn't believe we'd come so far. Many of them clearly never leave their pontoons, except to refuel for the generator. Hopefully the SB&R brigade aren't like that.

Hmmm. I wonder if the preceding weekend might be a bit more sensible. Eating, drinking and sleeping for a large group could be tricky during a busy Alderney Week, not to mention mooring buoys in the harbour if it's a good weather forecast.

Anyway, I usually like to check the grammar on my posts before submitting
