I'll check the weather in the morning but looks like I'm heading up there in the morning and maybe a quick run out to the Casquets.

Could be an interesting trip up for me in the morning then. I've been forced against my will to bring this mad french woman with me as well

Might well need to borrow that tent of yours after all

Best advice would be to put her on a ringo and tow her up. On a long line so you can't hear the screaming of course. And if customs question you, just plead ignorance and say she wasn't there when you left Jersey.

Nice crossing up this evening. No fog and only a very low swell. Didn't drop below 35 kts and made it in just over the hour.

Wind seems to be picking up, may have to extend the tow rope even further

3 guys from Jersey, Dave, Ollie & Chris did a trip to The Minquiers at the weekend and came across a pod of Dolphins

Looking forward to the Alderney trip in July, hopefully Ollie & Chris can make it up from Jersey.

Thanks for the link Paul. Some great photos they took, I've hardly seen any dolphins myself this year yet.

If they do come up for the Alderney Floptilla cruise, I'm sure Martini or I would do our best to act as a support boat if they wanted it or carry spare gear.

I'm off to Sark in the morning for the Sark to Jersey rowing race, couple of pints and a spot of lunch at the Dixcart Inn then back to the boat to watch the race start. Then might nip across to Guernsey for a couple more in the ship & crown before heading home.

Sunday's plan is to shoot across to Carteret before the gate closes in the morning (9.50 bst) and chill out, maybe have a g&t on my mates hard boat wots got a lid on it

Everyone welcome to tag along for any part
