Alderney, Guernsey, Jersey, St Malo, Bay of Biscay - 12 to 16 July 2007 [new dates]

Afternoon All,

Plans are under way now for a trip next year which I hope in the end will see me arriving in Portugal.

The 1st part of the trip I will be running a cruise for BIBOA which will take in all of the Channel Islands from 7th July to the 14th July. If all goes to plan I will continue down to the Bay of Biscay and make a decision from there.

If you would like to take part in the Channel Islands event, register your interest and I will keep you posted with updates etc.

This will be a great event for people who have not visited the Islands before or perhaps taken part in a reasonably long cruise.

Charles I will be in touch soon to see if your about and arrange to meet you.

All the best

Julian

Hiya Julian .

If enough smaller RIBs are signed up , I would like to register my interest . Perhaps an indication of the logistics would help folk decide if the trip is viable for them .

eg max. distance between refuelling , longest leg of trip , fuel availability etc .

Thanks Bern

Cool, would definitely get involved with any planning or arrangements to be made. Maybe a big 'braai' at my place again - would love to see scattered bodies lying all over the place in the morning

Thanks Charles, between us we could organize a few things to do whilst we are there, The last time I was at your house I fell in the harbour on the way back. Think I may have over done it on that day. Be good to catch up.

I'll post some more information here as the plans develop.

Cheers

Julian

I have about a dozen charts from the Channel Islands down to St Nazaire, plus 2 pilot books that I won't be using again. I could be persuaded to donate them for a relatively small amount of beer, if required.

I also have a chart chip of the French Atlantic coast that I used in my Navman 5600 but I would want serious beer for that !

Hi All,

Thanks for all your replies, It looks set to become a big event for next year now so lets hope we have good weather for it.

I have taken note of all the people interested and will send you all further information as things develop.

I will be able to post a rough guide here next week which will list distances, fuel etc as requested.

All the best

Julian
