Hannah, they are talking about if the weather is really bad... people still have to get back for work etc... so if worst comes to the worst they will get the ferry back.... and collect the boat another day.

V Disappointed

It is with a heavy heart that I am cancelling my planned trip to the Channel Isle. Sorry to disappoint anybody who may have been considering this trip.

I have postponed this decision for as long as possible, but the weather has just gone too unpredictable for us. All the forecasts are showing possible F5s (and a bit of rain), all too much for me and family and a 5.3 metre rib.

Hats off to the MCA though who managed to register my rib in less than two working days. Now that's a government run department that seems to work well!

Perhaps there will be another window later on this year, watch this space if you are still interested. I will now be looking at maybe the Thames for a day or two this weekend. Any suggestions on launching around the Walton on Thames area?

Best wishes from disappointed Doug

Nothing wrong with retreating so you live to fight another day!

Problem is I still do not know what/where else to go this W/E..
