Round Something 2017 - Channel Islands

This year we've decided to do a slightly less ambitious cruise than last year's Round Denmark one.
It should be a bit warmer at least, as it's Round the Channel Islands and bits of France.
Here are the current planned route and dates, in case anyone local wants to meet up and/or join us for bits of the cruise.

Friday 23rd June:
Probably meet in the evening in the Southampton / Hamble area for those arriving on Friday.
Saturday 24th June
Leave Southampton area early(ish) for St Vaast La Hogue. Itís about 80nm from the Solent so assuming 3 1/2 hours cruising time (longer if itís rough) an 08.30 start will get us there for locking-in.
Sunday 25th June
St Vaast to Cherbourg (am)
Cherbourg to Alderney (pm).
Monday 26th June
Alderney to St Peter Port, Guernsey (approx. 25nm).
NB Ė itís spring tides of around 11m, so beware of strong currents and overfalls.
Then Herm and/or Sark in afternoon. Overnight on Herm (2.3nm from St Peter Port), Sark (a further 3nm from Herm) or stay in Guernsey.
Neither Herm or Sark have marinas, so itís swinging moorings, anchor or a drying harbour.
Tuesday 27th June
Guernsey to Jersey approx 35nm - maybe via Les Ecrehou or Goury.
Overnight in St Hellier (Jersey) in the marina.
Wednesday 28th June
Jersey to Ile de Brehat (Approx 40nm) or Saint Quay Portrieux ( a further 12nm)
Overnight camping (or hotel or B&B) on Ile de Brehat or for those who want a marina, on to Saint Quay Portriuex, approx. 12nm from Brehat.
Thursday 29th June:
Ile de Brehat to Saint Quay Portrieux then St Malo (Approx 50nm Ė less if you start from Saint Quay Portrieux).
Overnight in St Malo Ė Port des Sablons.
Friday 30th June
St Malo to Mont St Michel (about 30nm) then Mont St Michel to Carteret (40nm).
Itís high tide at Mont St Michel at 11.47, so if weíre keen we can have an earlyish start to get there on the rising tide and make sure we leave before it goes out again. Itís neaps so only a 7m tidal range that day.
Overnight in Carteret (or Jersey).
Saturday 1st July
Carteret or Jersey to Cherbourg via Dielette, Goury and/or Port Racine for Coffee / Lunch etc.
Approx 45nm total.
Overnight in Cherbourg.
Sun 2nd
Cherbourg - Solent Area.
For the whole cruise, the total distance Cherbourg to Cherbourg is about 350 miles, and about 80 miles each way from the Solent.

There's 9 or 10 boats going, with a mix of Ribs and hard hulls. Participants are from Germany, Belgium, and North, West and South of the UK so communication should be interesting, with the Northerners and West Country yokels having to brush up on their proper English accents.

Please allow me

I say there my good man. Are you implying that those of us from the Northern climes, are somewhat lacking in communication skills?

Looks a good trip, I can recommend the oyster bar in St Vaast. Whilst in St Vaast a visit to http://www.maison-gosselin.fr/ is an absolute must (old chap)
