Urgent Change

Sorry Folks

Its seems that I have made an error in my waypoint. The 1st Waypoint I listed for our meeting point is wrong. Please ignore this . I will work out our meeting point tonight and post it on here tomorrow.

The rest of the waypoints are fine and will lead you into the harbour etc.

Julian

Urgent

Hi Folks

Just received an updated weather forcast for this weekend. There are storms brewing around the channel area and across france at the moment. Friday is going to be a rough crossing with up to Force 7 at times etc. Sunday is going to be very bad with up to Force 9 -10 . My recomendation is that we postpone this event and not take the risk. Paul Lemmer is going to go tomorrow but will be returning saturday lunchime ish to avoid the worst weather. Its up you if you would like to still go but its looks like its a non runner for myself.

Typical English weather.

Julian

The forecast for Thursday, when I met up with Mike, Brian, Andy Etc, was correct in that it was F7. All the forecasts show that it was a one off and the weekend is F2-F4. We looked at the customs house in Alderney and also

As we found today the sea conditions were fine for any RIB to make the crossing.

If anyone is in two minds then get in your RIB and make the crossing. Your biggest problem is going to sun-burn !

Cheers Mark

Every skipper, after receiving all the information he believes relevant, should make up his own mind about whether he should take his boat to sea.
All those who made the decision to abandon the Deaville BIBOA Cruise made absolutely the right decision.
The worst a skipper can do in my view is to allow himself to be swayed by peer pressure into going out when he suspects he should not.
We decided, after taking our own independent specialist advice, that we would go.

So on Day 1, Cyanide followed Awesome and Magellan Alpha out of Torbay at 07.00 hours on Thursday the 17th July.
For us Alderney was to be our first stop as it was only 65nmiles away and we could refuel inexpensively there.
An hour out of Alderney we went through a rather damp squall and were soon outside Braye harbour, in what can only be described as interesting wind-with-tide conditions. The ride in to the outer harbour was white-knuckling, to the extent that everyone forgot to take any photographs!
After refuelling, we hired mini-mokes and toured the island and were joined later by Mark Wildey (and Frank) from Poole in Jellygnite Two. Frank had come over for a game of golf (as you do) and was reputed to have been practising his tee swings from the top of Mark’s engine-box.
We also met “Seahound” who welcomed us to his island and made us feel amongst friends.

Andy Micklewright (Awesome) checks out The Swinge to the west, between Alderney and the Casquettes.

Day 2 Friday 18th
Leaving Braye at a leisurely 09.30 we went eastwards, past Cherburg and thence across the Baye du Seine to Deauville, arriving in the early afternoon. The air temperature was 28.5C, the sea like a millpond and not a cloud in the sky. After checking in through the lock gates and finding our hotels, we explored the town and drank a glass or two before enjoying an excellent meal and having a reasonably early night.
