Channel Islands - Saturday 11 August 2007

Biggles and I are watching the weather for a possible day trip to the Channel Islands on Saturday (probably heading for Guernsey as the tides are not favourable for refuelling in Alderney). No overnight stop – there and back in a day.

If anyone would like to tag along you are most welcome (departure details TBC).

I am also looking for at least one crew member to accompany me and share the driving (fuel contribution negotiable!). PM me if interested.

Andy

I think we'll be staying long enough for at least a couple!

I would have been interested in this but am going to Twickenham to see us give the french a lesson in rugby!

i do fancy a channel islands trip before the season is out (or even in the winter if there is a decent window)

A little begging,

I know Andy has managed to get a few boats lined up for this. Anyone with a decent camera thats going, I would most appreciate a good few shots of Zerstorer at high speed in the open seas. (With the sun behind the camera).

Also any ideas on breakfast ? Or do we do that before we leave ?

See you all Saturday. Nick R.

Surprised you think you need to ask! I'll have both DSLR and Video with me for this one (unless of course you don't think my Canon is 'decent' enough!)

Before we leave! If conditions are as good as they look like they're going to be I suggest a short 'coffee stop' somewhere outside of any shipping lanes. Not sure if we'll find a floating Starbucks in the channel so it'll have to be out of a flask!!


For anyone who wants to join our little cruise to Guernsey at this late hour, we will be leaving The Hamble just after 8:00am with a view to getting in to St Peter Port by 1:00pm latest; couple of hours stopover for lunch, refreshments and fuel, then departing 3:00pm-ish to be back by 8:00pm.

Channel winds are forecast 2 - 6mph, sunny and 17deg.

PM me for specific details.

Andy

Andy,

Just off to stock up with some sarnies for tomorrow.

Can you check your PMs and see what you think of my idea.

Nick.

I've been out this afternoon and its a bit choppy near Alderney, but otherwise just fantastic weather.
Have a great trip and I will see you all tommorow.
