I requested special terms on my insurance when I took out the policy, "inland and coastal waters of the UK including Channel Islands".

Draft itinerary/route plan attached for anyones use/comments, no responsibility accepted for resulting injury to persons or property

interested parties so far:

Martini +1
Erin +1

Anyone else want to put their name down? sea_quest?
I'm going to book a b&b for myself and passenger, I'll let everyone else make their own choice.

I'll plot the waypoints on my pc later as a double check. Just out of interest, is your fuel estimate for that leg of the journey, or return as well? I'm hoping to burn a litlle less than that, perhaps 240litres for the whole run Jer to Jer

Nice one. Can I just add that our VHF callsign is "Walkabout" which avoids confusion with Alderney Radio (Harbour Master). Also, we listen on 80 but work M2.

Looking forward to seeing everyone and just maybe coming along too.

192 litres is just for Braye to Cowes
Add 117 litres for St. Helier to Braye then double it for the return journey I'll be lucky to go through less than 600 litres
