Keen as mustard

Yeah, I too am keen to go over if you don't mind me tagging along! I wanted to go this year but it never materialised. Bottled out I think as much as anything!!! if there were a load going over it'd be more reassuring! LETS GO!

I also had this in mind when I 'upgraded' this year. If I can influence the choice of dates then May 19/20 or June 16/17 is ideal for me but will endeavour to fit in with other plans (and the weather!).

We enjoyed the crossing last year but if it had been in Zebedee (5m) fair seas and good weather would have been essentials really.

Our group camped in Alderney. Top fun! Terrible weather and a lighthouse that issued fog warnings throughout the night yards from our ears!!!

Loved the Channel Islands and look forward to running across in company again next year

Andy,

I'm edging for June 9/10 or 16/17. I can't make the May dates unless I take leave. And I don't want to do that at this stage.

Shall we aim for June 16/17 then ?

June 16th/17th is fine for me. Lets go for that date. Hopefully others will want to do that date too.

Alderney trip 16 - 17th June 2007.

Tom,

Yup, The 16th - 17th of June it is then.

As a basic plan meet off Cowes at 0900 hrs on the 16th. Make best speed to Guernsey. Land for lunch. In the afternoon go to Alderney for the over night stop.

Sunday depart about 1100 hrs and head to France and do a quick run along the coast (Just to say we done it, and show the flag). Then head for home.

Not too sure if this is too ambitious in the timeframe allotted but as with all things Nautical we'll have to be flexible, and because its quite a big jaunt we might have to make an effort to complete it.


Everybody welcome.

No.

Just go straight to Alderney. Guernsey is another 20NM further. I reckon it will take 3 hours min to get to Alderney and I reckon we will be ready for a pint by then.
