Hi,

I use a combination of the met office and xc weather for both Poole and Cherbourg. Looks like light winds at the moment.

They did have a few rooms left but maybe best to check online for availability as they were going.

Andy

OK, forecast wise I read this:
http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/w...look/#?tab=map

And checked this map:
Surface pressure charts - Met Office

So if you think that low is not too low, it seems good.

I used this to get an idea of wave height:
Channel Lightship - Weather Stations - Magicseaweed.com

(being a buoy in the middle of the channel)

I will have a look online for rooms then as it does seem like a better crossing that the last time Ribnetters tried it

Glad you got a room Trimix.

Weather looks ok, with winds picking up a little Sunday afternoon but hopefully we will be home by then. Chance of showers but hey, will be getting wet from the spray anyway :-)

Trev, if you end up on your own, do you want to rendezvous to cross, or meet the Poole contingent in Cherbourg?

One final thought, where are you hanging your flags, have seen various arguments for the red ensign on left or right hand side of a frame and courtesy on the other as I have no flag pole.

I only have one pole - in the middle, and only a red Ensign. Not yet got any courtesy flags.

I did order a Corsican one at the boat show - but thats on special order.

Hi Andy - I'm not sure. I'll let you know before Saturday!

Whats the name of the marina in Cherbourg we will use ? I just want to stick a waypoint in it for my plotter and have a look at it online.
