That was a great trip, weather perfect and the boat didn't miss a beat. There's something about steaming along at 30kts on a pitch black night in the fog, let's you know you're alive
I enjoyed it!

I'm hoping as long as I don't buy a boat, I should remain clean(ish).

Cotentin Cruise?

Following the Paris trip minute by minute, I note the profusion of marinas along the north Normandy coast and also down the west coast of the peninsula. I also recall Martini particularly wanted to have a stay in Honfleur which seems to be shut til summer.

Is there any interest in organising a cruise hopping along to a furthest refuelling point, then a straight-line return? Using Alderney as a muster point.

The Eastern one might look like:-

Alderney - Barfleur - St Vaast - Carentan - Isigny - Maisy - Bayeux - Ouistreham - Guillaume - Aubets - Honfleur - Alderney

The Southern one could resemble:-

Alderney - Dielette - Cartaret - Portbail - St Germain - Regneville - Granville - MSM - Cancale - Rotheneuf - St Malo - Alderney

Perhaps alternating lunch in one, then a night in the next and so on. Either cruise could be done in a long weekend at a push.

Yeah, they are a bit short.

Alderney to Honfleur via all outbound stops = 230nm

Alderney to St Malo VAOS = 190nm

Four days, 50nm per day. Seven days 25nm pd.

Lots of opportunities to take short cuts or detours depending. Doing it as a long weekend will mean missing out some of the harbours.
