Channel Crossing - this weekend

Just a heads-up we’re 99% going across this weekend if anyone wanted to tag along or meet up at one of the islands. Still making final arrangements - times / itinerary etc cheers Lee 07798 621721

I know it was short notice but I now have three passengers capable of sharing the driving. Weather looks OK so the crossing should be enjoyable for all

Channel Crossing - this weekend

Superb day. Blues sky, flat seas and zero wind. Thanks Lee for suggesting this trip. This would have been a good weekend in Alderney perhaps another time. Photos and GoPro clips to follow.

Was fun
Just got home, crossing the shipping channel a couple of hours ago surrounded by a pod of dolphins, leaping out of the water and playing in our bow wave - my 11yr old daughter was very excited!!
