[QUOTE=Erin;388283] So what's the Witch's fastest lap time of the Island in your reasonably priced car?

Depends on how many times it breaks down and i have to push it!

I'd be selective on the start point in that case. Perhaps the top of Tourgis. If you can get enough speed up and make the first corner you should be able to coast the rest of the way round . What do you reckon, 3 hrs top, including running along behind picking up the trail of debris.

Floptilla Challenge

You could do a Floptilla 'Top Gear' style challenge. Car route from Braye, to Braye around the airport and to Longis etc v any Rib that wants a go.

Or on the Monday, Braye by Foot/light aircraft to St Peter Port v any takers.

I have timed it by both means and a not-that-fast-boat easily beats the time it takes to get from Braye to Alderney International (allowing the proper time before the flight for check in).

It is about 45 mins Braye to St PP by bateau (calm seas).

And about 1:15 via two airports and two taxis (no traffic).

You could even it up by starting/finishing at a point halfway between the harbours and airports. Or by abseiling out of a helo.

We have a charity thing every year along those lines, St. Helier to St. Peter Port, powerboat vs. aircraft, latter usually gets it

Why bother with check in?

Into the Red should be going into the water at the tail end of next week (we hope!), so we will be around from then onwards.

I was thinking somewhere a bit closer to home for the first run out of the season, I have been doing a lot of tinkering over the last few weeks

Will be up there soon though
