They seem to be sticking with their forecast still. 10kts SE on Friday and then 5 kts NE on Saturday. if it stays like that we should have a great trip to Le Havre. Don't forget the suncream

Thanks, I will put you down as a shorebased contact on my CG66. In case of emergency I'm sure the Willk database will have the answers to any questions the authorities might have .

Thanks, very much looking forward to it, fingers crossed most things go to plan. I'll have my AIS transmitter on to help you "think about" us although there's no receivers after Le Havre.

I'm taking the laptop so I'll do my best to keep everyone updated with pics etc.

Crikey have you tapped into the National Police CCTV network there?!

They should employ you as technical advisor on the next Bourne movie...

We'll have to chuck some of those transmitter blockers in the 'poubelles' as we go up the Seine a la Benny Hill in 'The Italian Job'. Should keep the spying eye of willk off us

.... and I thought I'd be able to get away without my make-up!

We'll have to remember to wave at the cameras as we pass.
