Falling just at the end of half term, it looks like we should just be able to make it, Into the Red going into the water tomorrow, although the french strikes mean it goes in practically fuel-less
A quick run over to Jersey tomorrow afternoon or Wednesday for lunch should sort that. We will plan to be on the water for most of Sunday, and indeed this week, although we're back in the UK, Friday and Saturday.
We went for a walk round the boats this afternoon in St. Malo, there are hundreds of really cutting edge racers, monohulls and multis. It should be a fantastic event! They're setting off on Sunday from here, and heading directly to Goudaloupe, some single handers, but most with crews. It should be a massive event, everyone connected with the sea seems fairly "excited" by it, and going by photos of four years ago, the start will be a frenzy of boats! There are zones of restricted activity, and if anyone shows any interest I'll happily put a summary on here, as finding the information is a little tricky.

....that should be the english version I think!
Cap Breizh have already shown an interest in going, and it could be a good link up for Ribnet and them (with us in the middle obviously!)
