Hi Julian
Welcome back,where did you go, any good snow?
Lots and lots of interest for this cruise already through the BIBOA channels, so hopefully more people will be getting in touch with you in due course.

Cruise

Morning Charles

I went to Zermatt in Switzerland, fantastic place and we had 3 meteres of fresh powder, great snowboarding. Now its back to reality.

I've had about 7 e-mails from people so far including Mike Deacon is coming along but he does'nt know how many people will be with him.

I'll keep you posted along the way but it looks good so far.

Julian

Why not pit stop in Alderney? You can pick up fuel there and it would probably be cheaper than yarmouth.

Hi there

Some can if they need to but fuel is only available by jerry cans is'nt it. I will take on enough diesel in yarmouth then will fill right up before the return Journey either in Guernsey or Jersey. Should be a great event.

Diesel from the pump is OK at Alderney cos I filled up my Seahawk there on the St. Malo cruise . As for petrol then I seem to remember that only jerry cans

Andre

Another advantage of having a diesel rib

Just to clarify...

we are talking about Braye Harbour here?

diesel at a dockside pump and petrol in cans (lugged from somewhere close by), yes?

I believe you of course. Last time I went into Braye I must have had my eyes shut, I couldn't see anywhere obvious.

Hi Brian

I have only refuelled once in Braye which is where we are talking about and that was a petrol boat which took ages to fill up in Jerry cans. I have never got diesel from there but apparantly they do have it.

The one time I went to Braye refuelling was possible alongside in the inner harbour - so only when sufficient water present. Petrol was gravity fed from jerries down long hose to boat. Not sure about diesel.

Alderney:
Diesel available from pump at Maynebrace - inner harbour -tidal restrictions apply. Petrol is available by Jerry Can, always a good idea to let Maynbrace know you are coming so that they can be prepared to have enough petrol for your requirements. Other alternative is alerting Jake Hamon from Alderney Vehicle and Marine Repairs and he can arrange a bowser on the opposite side.

Guernsey:
Petrol and Diesel available upon entering St.Peter Port three-quarter way into harbour to port. Not effected by the tide.
Everyone will take fuel (diesel or petrol) onboard at Guernsey (not Alderney) upon arrival. Herm is 8 minutes away thereafter.
