Hi Gooner

ICC - International Certificate of Competence, more details here

About the ICC | The ICC and Proof of Competence Abroad | Boating Abroad | Information & Advice | RYA

Distance to Cherbourg from Needles about the same as around the Isle Of White, which you know well

If the weathers good for the two days and your Kit is serviced and in good order no reason why you can't make it across.

This looks interesting. Just reviewing what I need - would have to apply for icc but could be tempted with our 5.3 humber.

Yarmouth for the UK side and Cherbourg for the French side both do petrol and diesel (normally).

Excellent ajstars, have you booked any accommodation. One of my crew has had to drop out and has just canceled his room at the hotel. Might be worth checking today what vacancies are left.
