A cruise to the D Day Beaches - what more could she ask for

Pity you can't make it.

Besides hotel / B&B accommodation We will also be checking campsites close to the marinas, as a last resort, incase the hotels are full. Hopefully as it's seven months away accommodation can still be found. Will start looking next week and update with the possibilities.

I will also check the possibility of booking marina spaces especially at Carentan. This could be very busy on the 6th June.

As expected accommodation is already getting booked in the chosen ports, although there are still some places available on a No Cancellation Fee basis and pay laters. Carentan looks the most difficult to find accommodation although there is one hotel with some rooms left close to the harbour.

Will post a list tomorrow.

I am interested in this, although the 95nm may be a little out of the range of my boat :'(
