Hi Paul & Andre,
Sorry, I've not been around. Computer went down and needed a complete re-installation!
Now, alternatives..... I'm up for the whole weekend from Friday to Monday but as I've already posted, I think we'll be lucky to go in 6mtr boats. It's a bit far in one day even in the Summer so it will have to be perfect both ways and in October you can never be sure.... unless some exceptionally settled weather comes in, (oink-oink Ė flutter-flutter)
So, alternatives... Well if itís reasonable for 24 hours or so, how about a crossing to Alderney to wave off the 8mtr guys and stay the night on Alderney or Cherbourg or somewhere, then return? Or maybe if itís better in the East, how about an overnight trip to Bolougne from Dover?
Or failing that, (and with my luck with the weather it'll be at least a Force 6, so the most likely), A trip up the tidal Thames through London?
Thoughts and comments then?...
And Charles, I will get back to you e-mail in a day or so.!!!
