Well, I've done Le Harvre - Poole solo in a Force 5, so hopefully Poole - St Vaast in company will be do-able in the same.

At least the wind should keep the fog away

Hope to see you in Cherbourg!

Well GD has promptly decided to go to Canada this week and won't be back 'till Saturday morning, I have got my university application to do, and oh yeah, we're moving house

Wish you all the best, would love to be joining you to meet up with new faces and old friends. Don't forget your RYA membership card, 15% off in Cherbourg I think
