Guernsey 17/18 October

Pending weather conditions we are hoping to go to Guernsey on Saturday 17th october and back the next day. Departure from Southampton Dry Stack about 8:30and refuelling in Yarmouth
very possible 3 ribs would take part in this cruise
two 9 mtr Parker ribs and one Redbay

I may have 2/3 space seats on SOLENTBLAST if anyone is interested. Dry suits are a must

Well we made it. It was a most enjoyable cruise and many thanks go to Mike C who pushed for this trip picking the right weekend cos of the weather. There were 10 of us see photos.
from left to right are: Steve, Wiesia, Gary, Tim, David, Mike, Wendy, Steve and Nick. I am behind the camera.

Many thanks to Martin (Malthouse) for meeting us and assisting with his rib to ferry us to the quayside in Alderney
One can always rely on a fellow ribnetter

we left from Southampton Dry Stack and topped up with fuel at Lymington having also done the necessary customs clearance cos one was heading outside of the EC. we also notified the Coast Guards of our cruise and our ETA Guernsey. Upon arrival to St Peter's port will reported our arrival. Everything to the book. Once caught out is enough.

The weather to Alderney was not the best and we did our best to make the journey as comfortable as possible for our fellow passengers. We managed to maintain an average speed of 28 knots. as soon as we arrived we headed for the fuelling station and filled the tanks with 252 ltrs of petrol.

Our return journey was a bit longer as we went around Herm. The weather on the return journey was superb so we maintained a cruising speed of 35/36 knots. We stopped for lunch at Alderney and the leg from Alderney to Lymington took us only 1 hour and 50 minutes. On the return journey we used 293 ltrs of fuel
