Glad you guys had a good time, despite the incidents .
Saturday was certainly a good crossing day. Unfortunately, due to the weather vaugeries us 6 Metery people decided on a short crossing to Boulogne instead, scheduled for the Sun/Mon. Sunday, though not as good as Saturday was OK but F5/F6 was forcast for the Monday return in the Dover Straight. As this would have been wind against the spring tide at the time of our return crossing we decided not to go. (It turned out to be 31 mph N/Easterly so it would not have been fun).
Should have done a Sat/Sun to Alderney. Oh well! Next time.
