Dear Julian We are still onboard for this one, if Stephanie doesn't come I will, on my own, or find some company. Do we get on and book our own accom, or do you have any suggestions from previous trips? All the best Martin
PS. Re Dartmouth I might be travelling on my own for this one, Stephanie has a bad back at the mo. I will have to be out of Bembridge Harbour early on Friday so will moor up in Yarmouth till you arrive.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the update.Hope Stephanie gets better soon.

Best to book your own accomodation for the Channel Islands as the last 2-3 times I have stayed there I have slept on the boat so I am not familiar with any B & B or Hotels etc. If anyone has any suggestions that would be good.

I'll be outside Yarmouth at 10.30 so I will see you on Friday in the basking sunshine, I hope.

All the best

Julian

Afternoon Guys

Following on from a conversation with the Marina in St Malo there could be a big problem with us getting in. The following day they have a yacht race where a huge percentage of the boats berth the night before. They will not commit to letting us in.

There for we have decided the best plan is to head up the coast some 8 miles to a place called Paimpol. This looks like a lovely town as well and if anyone wants to visit St Malo we can easily arrange to get round for a look around.

Please look for accomodation in Paimpol now rather than St Malo.

Please click here for a link to Paimpol http://www.panoramafactory.net/galle...rt_Panoramique

This is the last change to the event and only done to make our lives easier.

See you next week

Julian

Apologies for butting in to your thread but I saw Paimpol mentioned... I was there about 4 weeks ago and yes it's a lovely town!

You don't say if you've been before, but make sure you time the tides right for the lock (about 2 hrs either side of high tide from memory - check this!) because if you miss it there isn't much water left and you'll have nowhere to go!

I took this picture looking at the lock entrance at low tide... note the keel marks in the mud!

It can be a bit of a bun fight at the lock too so prepare lots of fenders!

Any other questions let me know

Morning All,

Alex thanks for the info on Paimpol, will be looking closely at the tides.

I have also been thinking that I would like to move the start time from 10.30am to 9.30am. Reason being is that it would be nice to have a leisurely lunch / beer and rest in Alderney rather than rushing in and out to get to Jersey. A sill locks St Helier Marina and we need to be in a couple of ours either side of high tide, High Tide is around 4pm. If all went wrong we could berth in the Marina on the starboard side called La Collette, which is accessible at all, tides.

Let me know your thoughts on this and if we all agree we will set off at 9.30am.

Cheers

Julian
