Better have eyes on the back of your head if you come back here after a comment like that

We have a saying for foreigners who come over here then start moaning about it

And you need to clear customs in St. Helier or Gorey before you can land at the Minkies anyway

'kin 'eck! I didn't quite mean to spark such a response. I understand how vulnerable you feel Matt now that we have no Navy to defend us any more the French may come and seize them at any minute!

Seriously though, if we're prepared to go that far I think there are nicer places eg French coast (potentially anywhere, they are all nice), even Brehat etc etc.

You may not have appreciated it at the time, but here is my map of potential destinations. I will add the Minquiers and St. Malo and St. Quay.

(obviously not from gotchidad)

Can we book in at that Disney style hotel on Brecqhou for lunch?

With less than 2 weeks to go maybe we need to think more seriously about how long to stay and where to visit,

Oh g*d...I may need to buy a tent unless the B&B's have spaces

Might be able to help you on that if you're really struggling.

The plan to see the sheep racing on Sark involved camping, so a tent might not be all bad.

I checked on your reservation at the hotel here, which is sound, but if you over run etc we have a capacious sofa.

Oww thanks guys, I'm a bit limited for space when it comes to the tent, but could dry bag it & strap in on the seat. Let's firm some plans first before I come begging

Are we still planing to leave the SWM @ 11am?

Paul

Hi Paul
Based on the current list, it looks like it might be just us and you from RIBnet - we've not heard from Andre or Mark241 lately so we'll probably aim at going Friday with you rather than on Saturday.

11.00 in Allum Bay still seems like a good plan.

Regarding making more definite plans for accommodation for the following week - I'm guessing that if it's good weather you'll struggle to find a late availability B&B wherever we go as the summer holidays will have started - and if it's bad weather we'll all still be in the Solent!
We're planning on camping anyway (or sleeping on the boat if we're in a marina) so can be flexible on what the plans are for the week.
Trev
