Guernsey this Bank Hol

Anybody considering the Channel Isle this BH weekend?

Kinda thought we would leave the Solent on Friday AM with a couple of tents and bags for a bit of exploring etc. All weather dependant of course...

We have done this trip a few times in the past but in sailing yachts of various sizes.

Only really started looking at this over the last couple of days, will dig out some charts and pilots over the weekend for more info..

OK

Still shaping things up my end. Will go for a long range weather forecast on Monday/Tuesday with a final decision on Wednesday.

Kinda looking for a F3 max, 5 hour window sometime on Thursday as we begin to suffer in the open sea at higher windspeeds. Return journey can be up to a F5 as I can send my wife and kids back on the ferry..... Higher than that and I shall collect the rib via trailer and ferry!

More info soon

Doug
