Looks like a bit of a rough old day for a channel crossing, F6 on the nose by the look of XC Weather and a bit of surfing down the waves on the way home tomorrow.

Neil, no worries there will always be another time specially when the weather
is better. Roy and I decided that today was not the day for Alderney

Thank to everyone who came along for the trip, Roy , Andre no problem Saturday was gusting very hard in Alderney so you would have had a very rough trip in the end, we can allways go again.

Time to go a re fit the broken seat.

Cheers

Julian

Hi Andre,

Weather was not too bad force 4 to 5 following sea, our seat broke 10 miles of Alderney so we had 50 miles of standing up which was not ideal, we had good luck with the weather over the trip and only one rough run from Jersey to Alderney on the saturday.

Would be up for a trip anytime.

Cheers

Julian
