This would mean departing 30mins before sunrise but it will be fairly light by that time anyway. We wouldn't be able to leave MStM much before HW-30mins (19:45 BST). Sunset on the 25th is at 19:00; it will be pitch black by the time we're out of the bay. Mind you, we'll have our outgoing track on our plotters, I have radar and Martini II has night vision; we should be ok. This is what's it's all about; is there a more beautiful cruising destination? -

Still showing a F5 on Saturday according to Windfinder. It could still change, but I wouldn't fancy that.

Saturday does look a bit rough at the moment and there's a very deep low mid Atlantic which is coming our way. If we don't go this weekend then the next opportunity will be the high springs on Saturday and Sunday the 9th and 10th of October. After that, the weekend tides are too early; we'd be sailing there and back in the dark. Christmas day would be last possibility this year. I'd love to go to Mont St. Michel on Christmas Day; that would be really special; hell, I might even stay for Mass. I reckon I'd be the first pilgram to land by sea since the Middle Ages.

Yep, that would be a touch special! It would also get me out of going to the in-laws for Christmas lunch

Tomorrow's trip is clearly off due to the sh*te weather. As mentioned above, the next opportunity is the weekend of the 9th and 10th October.

Anyone fancy going to MSt.M this weekend (9/10 October)? It'll be rough, but it's the last realistic opportunity before Christmas Day.

I'm looking at Alderney again friday night/saturday. Will probably be just about my last outing for this year so looks like MstM will have to wait till the spring equinox for me.

You got back from the pub quick, gearbox must have behaved itself then . Was going to make some comment about you having nothing better to do and getting straight onto Ribnet, but then realised that'd make make me a hipocrite seeing as I'm here as well

If the weather's good on Christmas day, I may well be up for it. Would be worth the agro of launching IMV.
