This is a preliminary draft of the plan for the Alderney cruise in June this year. If anyone spots any mistakes please let me know. The cruise is open to all and the only reason a list of names is published is so that we can make sure we don't leave anyone behind. It would be appreciated if you could forward Mobile Phone numbers so that on the day we can do a final check and wait for anyone who might be a little late. And also not wait for anyone who can't make it.
This also means that people can start planning on purchasing any kit they require
