We're still planning to go on Thursday or Friday - but are waiting until closer to the time for the weather before comitting to if and when (especially as we'll be camping ).

Trevor, the forecast looks good for that whole weekend but best to wait till nearer the time for final confirmation

I am of a strong belief that the dress code will be T-shirts & shorts , hats and shades and lots of sun tan lotion.

for the benefit of some especially the overseas members I have attached my route to St Helier Jersey via Alderney . In total appox 105Nm each way

This was done on Google Earth and the starting point is the Needles Isle of Wight

as we will be 2 full days on the Island one day will be to cruise around Jersey and the other Guernsey, Sark & Herm

As already noted the weathers looking good for this weekend so we’re heading to Alderney Saturday, leaving the Solent fairly early in the morning - if anyone wants to tag along then your more than welcome, cheers Lee 07798 621721

Might see some of you in Alderney. Were planning on heading up from Jersey in our motor boat on either Friday or Saturday for the week. Just hope the weather holds for the return crossing.

Looks like we'll be sailing over on Saturday, but won't be leaving until a bit later as we need to sort out several things first. We might see some of you in Alderney Saturday night or Sunday morning, we'll be the aluminium sailing yacht "Little Wing".

Then heading down to Guernsey on Sunday morning hopefully, and across to Brittany on Monday morning.

I hope everyone has a great trip!

Andre and Lee - do you have a planned return time? I'm hoping to come along but won't be early enough for 7.30 at Yarmouth.

I'm aiming to come across with Paul leaving SDS around 9, and return in the afternoon with Andre.....

Mike Deacon will be going in Watershed from Lymington - Leaving about 8am.

We should be able to see each other on AIS (Black Adder, Watershed and Grey Mist anyway).

Let's use 72 as a VHF if we get close enough, or in Alderney.
