You say clash, I say feature

(I was going to use the banana smiley, but you would not believe how wrong that looked!)

Depending on others I may stay on for a few days, Jersey has no problems with me mooring,

Guernsey's h-m has said ' I will give the issue some thought over the weekend and revert in due course' ........ that was on 12th march

Yeah I guess we ought to give a little thought to the extension, our trip was a whole week last year and we would like to repeat that. Maybe Herm this time?

Is this going in the proposed itinerary as a day trip?

Could work? Instead of the round the island although it would be a shame to miss that for those who have not done it before. It was great last year Maybe a split two ways, some to Sark and some round the island?

I guess it depends on what numbers are like, if we do have 20 boats + then it's going to be a fairly hectic weekend!

I was chased up by the Sailing Club this afternoon for details of the arrival, is it safe to say that most passage plans aim for an arrival of between 12 noon and 1400 on Friday the 22nd of July?

I realise it is too early to commit and obviously weather is the biggest and shortest notice consideration, but some indication of numbers of people and boats would be great.

That's pretty much our plan, Looking like 5 (or maybe 6) boats at present

Assuming our passage plan is pretty much the same as yours we'll be somewhere around the 25 knot group in terms of departure.

We'll be posting a passage plan with the Coastguard.

Will you be agreeing on a working channel or just working with your group mmsi?
