Wow, that last video looked great; even Mrs GJ0KYZ liked it. I think for us it'll be a case of "Nous aimerons Paris au mois d'Avril".

I think it is a pretty safe bet.

If that video were posted on YBW there would now be a lively debate going on about jack staff etiquette.

I went and got my paper charts off the charter boat yesterday and been having a browse... What is the reasoning behind locking into Honfleur rather than staying put in Le Havre Marina?

Also, what is the planned-for speed on the Alderney to Le Havre leg?

I thought the idea of Honfleur was that it was prettier and more visitor friendly. Depending on sea state, our AY to Le Havre speed could be anything up to 35 (for fuel economy) or down to 25 if a bit rough (e.g. F4 ish)

2 reasons I thought for Honfleur, a/ why not? b/ Le Havre's a s**thole

I'm working on 30kts at sea, more than that gets expensive

On the other hand it doesn't have fuel, it's very crowded and expensive and it's tidal. Le Havre will be grim by comparison for sure, but it has its advantages.

Huh, if it could only be reached on a tide that required the sun, moon and Jupiter in alignment, a stiff onshore wind and Mme. Reynaud at the end house to flush the bath simultaneously to reach it, you'd be rounding up volunteers to try it....
