Julian has kindly offered to co-ordinate the departure from the Solent area VERY early on Friday morning 29 August 2003.
Ribs will set off directly to the top of the Little Russel – Platte Fougere, Guernsey, Channel Islands where I will meet the cruise. From there we can venture into St.Peter Port and re-group to collect provisions, fuel and other necessary items either forgotten or either consumed en-route already.
It’s straight over to Herm from there, to commence off-loading our kit to be taken by tractor to the Seagull Camp-Site. The ribs will pick up swinging moorings or anchor in the channel. Captain and crew then proceed to camp-site and sort out their accommodation for the week-end
The emphasis on the week-end will be RELAXING…..snorkelling, fishing, water-skiing and other water-borne activities. Small cruises will be done from our base in Herm, finding and exploring all the wonderful anchorages, coves and inlets around Sark, Guernsey and the reefs around Jersey.
This cruise is an ideal opportunity for first-timers to cross the Channel in the company of many other ribs. Weather permitting, this cruise will be the highlight on this years BIBOA calendar. Herm and the surrounding areas are a treasure waiting to be discovered, so put it in your diaries, book the time off and show your support.
