Hi Mark,

If you are coming then please stop in at Alderney, it is a sensible first landfall and well worth a visit. We would be happy to help with any arrangements!

Channel Island cruise

Mark
I see you are from Andover, I'm from Salisbury, perhaps a beer or two mid way for a chat to discuss
I have made/planned a few trips to the Channel Islands over the last few years and being BIBOAs Cruise Coordinator this year would be more than happy to give you some tips and details of our planned cruises this year.
Email me on: j.adlard@btinternet.com when your free
Cheers
Jon

I wouldn't mind coming along on this if that's okay with everyone?

And Luke, I'm sure you'd be very welcome to join our boat if you'd like and the timing is right.

Take it easy,
Ian
