I'll be in the big boat as the rib's out of action at the mo. Initially I thought it wouldn't be viable to pick the girls up from Guernsey but surprisingly it only adds about 6 miles to the journey, extra half hour and 20 so not the end of the world!
Thanks Matt
Currently it looks like it will be flat enough for the girls to make the crossing to Alderney on Blue Ray - but we're not sure about the return as yet. At the moment XC weather's showing F4-5 gusting 5 to 6 for Sunday so we're hoping it will drop off for Monday and we'll wait 'til then to return home.

Weather update:

There are several weak lows lazily hanging around the west of the Channel, bringing occasional rain and capping temperatures. The seven day outlook is cloudy, with wind speeds in single digit knots or low teens.

Current plans....
Leave Southampton late morning for Yarmouth.
Nachos in the Wheatsheaf.
Leave Yarmouth in afternoon for Alderney - if it stays a light North / North Easterly that will give us wind with tide for the crossing. Hopefully arrive in Braye Harbour before all the cakes sell out at the sailing club!

Camp at Saye Camp site.

Come back Sunday (Plan A), Monday or Tuesday depending on the weather!.

It was great to see everyone again.

Though I missed the majority of Sunday, ended up busy for 7 hours solid. Finally got showered and changed and had a trek round, including two trip to the airport to try see the private aviation "wing" of Rib.net off.
