Channel Islands 2007

Morning Guys,

Right following on from several conversations with various marina's etc it appears that next weekend is Bastille Day which means its going to be very busy.

Several of you have tried to book accomodation but with no joy. Its now been decided that instead of staying over night in Paimpol we will stay another night in St Helier instead. Most people have hotels booked and can add another night to the stay.

Of course we can go and visit all of these places but at least this way we have a base and most importantly you have a bed for the night.

Right thats it for now, keep you fingers crossed for good weather and see you at 9.30 Thursday morning.

Cheers

Julian

Welcome to Jersey

Would be glad to buy you guys a pint in St Helier Yacht Club - I'd be joining you for the rest of the cruise, but No.4 Baldy is due very imminently.

What time will you be in?

Oops - just noticed you've been and gone - hope it was good!

Hi Tony Thank you for the thought, it was a great cruise, well organised by Julian, complemented with good company. Charles looked after us in Jersey, taking us to Sark and around the Islands. We had a bumpy run on the way out to Aldernay, but flat calm for the return from Guernsey, 3 hrs to Yarmouth, Mike probably did in two and a bit. "Next Time" All the best Martin

Jersey 2007

Morning All,

I will do a full write up over the next few days and we have loads of photos to add as well, It was a fantastic event, rough on the way over but we were very lucky and had broght sunshine for the rest of our stay. The gearbox on our Scorpion blew up as we passed corbiere light house so we had to leave the boat in Guernsey to be fixed. Mike took us back in Hotlemon, St Peters Port to Needles in 1hrt and 45 mins. Not bad eh.

Thanks to everyone who took part and a big thanks to Charles who played a fantastic host as allways.

All the best

Julian
