Afternoon Charles

Are the dates for this cruise firmly set now, I am just about to book the time of work, Also if you need a hand organising things from this end, I will be leaving from Lymington so any one who wants to depart from there can run in company with us etc.

UPDATE ! UPDATE ! UPDATE !

Hello All

The Channel Islands Camping Cruise

Dates: Friday 29 August 2003 – Sunday 31 August 2003 (or longer if people can take off Monday.)

Venue: Herm, Channel Islands

Contacts: Charles St.Clair-Bolam
(h) +44 1534 617407
(m) +44 7797 721 699
e-mail: Charles :

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.

Charles St.Clair-Bolam

Sounds great.

Pencil me in Charles.

Now all I have to do is convince the crew or find someone who wants to join me.

Hmmm. This is going to be a tough call.

Brian and I set off for the Orkney run on the 14th and get back via the east coast. On the 28th we should be due home. Brian has a 3-line wip to make it by the 27th, I think.

The chances of driving back east again the next day are not going to be high. After a fortnight without a proper home I might be just a bit ready to sleep in my own bed - not a tent.

So I just gotta hope that the weather's to good to pass up the chance of joining up with group leaving the Solent and extending the Orkney trip by another 3 days. We'll see. Fingers crossed.

I must just say, that the choice of this week-end was not entirely my doing, I apologise for that. The cruising calendar (BIBOA) is pretty full up and some things are 'set in stone' and cannot be changed. I had to consider BIBOA members and official cruises first, so there you have it. If the weather is anything like last years cruise over here then we will be blessed.
