Have had to rethink this as there appears to be no accommodation in St Vaast for the 12th October. It was also going to be difficult to reserve something with 6 weeks to go taking a chance with the weather.
Have decided to change destination to Cherbourg.Will ask for the title of the thread to be changed.
Only 60 miles from the Needles to Cherbourg with a large marine with 24h access. The Hotel Chantereyne has plenty of rooms right on the marina with free cancelation and book now pay laters. Rooms from £55 to £60 per room. For those who share a twin room it works out cheaper.
Will be booking a room tonight with harbour views
Just need to find a delightful restaurant that will take a bunch of hungry Ribsters
