You aint kidding! Low water recovery is possible but not reccomended. We use a long thick tow line now! The shingle at the bottom is firm but not firm enough for a Discovery ahhemm.

Never tried Boulogne, yet, where did you tie up and how much was it. The bible shows several berths.

Its On!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right, looking at the weather this might be a goer this weekend.

We have my 6m ribtec, a 6m tornado and possibly a 6m searider. As I've not heard anymore about the daft plonkers in a SIB I'm gonna assume its not coming!

Anybody else still interested? Paul?

The plan is to go from Lymington but only if there is an excellent weather window. Once in Cherbourg I was hoping to grab a nice lunch and a trip round a hypermarket for a select few items (bubble wrap is in limited supply!) before nipping back.

At 20 knots its gonna take three hours each way.

Chris

Are you sure about that window in the weather?
look at the chart for the 12th, it could still be a bit lumpy bumpy.

Have been keeping a close eye on the charts now for the past few days. I would hope that we should get west north west 10-15 knots. I think it may decrease later on on the sat which is good because it is likly to go more north as the day progresses. (Don't want to much wind on the nose for the way home) We will not go if the weather is not right. It is not fun being ofshore in small open boats in bad weather. Exhorsting is an understatment in small powerboats in a big sea hour after hour.

does anyone have a copy of reeds, If so could you look up the number for the fuel barge in Cherbourg. My copy of reeds for this year got a bit soggy on the way back from the Azores. Stupit bloody huricane in America!

Any way would be greatfull if someone has the number as we have done ariving places to find that the barge is closed for the winter havent we chris.

Hi Chris, we are very much interested in coming. Provided the weather forcast remains good.
We would propose to meet at Lymington, what time are you thinking of leaving on Saturday? Where is the car and trailer parking?

The fuel we know at cherbourg is run by the marina office and assume it will be open all day saturday.
The e-mail address is: cherbourg.marina@wanadoo.fr
and the tel no: 02 33 87 65 70 or 02 33 94 15 50
Website for port chantereyne is www.cherbourg-marine.com

Have you considered staying Sat night in cherbourg? 5 euros for the boat and 35 euros for a double room for the night at the harbour. Unless the sea is very calm it will be tough to do there and back in the same day, especially with the limited daylight.

Will be watching the weather closely!
David and Harry Simmons

Edit:
Here is a better site for the marina, i think the other was just for a boat dealer.
http://www.ville-cherbourg.fr/fr/vil...es/default.asp

Fuel situation is as follows:
8H - 11H45 et 14H - 17H00 sauf dimanche après-midi (hors saison)

Not sure on a start time in the morning on Saturday. It will be early... but we have to travel from SW London fiorst so it wont be that early!

Obviously its in our interest to set of early as we do not want to travel back at night.

Keep eyes on the thread and I'll post a meeting time for Sat morning asap!

Chris

There is a secondary low forming south of the azores. I think this will prob arive sunday or monday which will give us the window. I would guess that the wind will go north on sunday and prob pick up to 15 to 30 knots so if we get the window I think it will have to be both ways on sat. What do other people think of the synoptic charts. As for a leaving time. Would 7 be to early, leave at 8 be there for 11 spend 2 hours there and be back in sight of the UK at dusk. I don't want to be out in a big sea at night in a rib, or any powerboat for that matter. although the wind may be low we will have to hope that the sea state is ok. Will prob be calmer on the french side I would guess.

Thanks for the fuel barge no
