Solent - Guernsey. End of Sep/Early Oct?

Me and a few friends are looking at cruising down to Guernsey towards the end of September/early October. This trip will be a combination of having a nice weekend away, and keeping on top of passage planning, "proper" navigation etc. One of our guys is going to use it as a prep for his APBI.

Is there someone else in the Solent area that fancies doing the same trip in company? I am keen to go alongside another boat as we are a single engined boat (9m). Rough plan (subject to dates, weather etc) would be to leave the Solent 8ish on Saturday morning, get to Guernsey around lunchtime, then leave at lunchtime on the Sunday, getting back here around 5ish.

Cant do September, but would be interested if it is in October. By then the Rib will be back in the Southampton area.

We are looking at the following dates:

Sat 16th and Sun 17th Oct, with the weekend after next (30th/31st) as backup if the weather is rubbish.

The more the merrier! The plan will be to RV at Yarmouth at around 0930ish for final fuel/loo/food on the Saturday morning then head over. Once we get to St Peter Port everyone can do as they wish (it's my birthday so you are most welcome to join us on a pubcrawl of St Peter Port) until late morning on the Sunday, when I propose we head over to Alderney for lunch, then head for home. We stayed in a very nice, very reasonably priced hotel when we did this last October. I shall enquire about rooms etc.

Sounds like a nice birthday trip, its mine too that weekend, though i think my 5.0 Tornado would need to grow by a meter or more in the next couple of months
Hope it all goes well for you

If the weather looks good we're thinking about taking a 4m Searider as well
