I'll see if the aero club have got a pilot who wants to go to Paris but most likely get a ferry to St. Malo then hire a car

Unless you fancy a trip down the Seine? Dad could give us a lift to Paris?!

If you can postpone 'till Friday then we can probably help either by Vipermax or by car.

Just an update ...
Made it to St Vaast on Wednesday 3rd with a really flat crossing until we got to the Barfleur Race - but that was just a lumpy last 10 miles really.
Thursday 4th went round to Cherbourg against the race (again) - very lumpy so we were glad it was not a longer distance!
Friday 5th - left Cherbourg for Alderney - again our timing meant we were against the race, but arrived in Alderney 5 mins ahead of Martini II.
Had a couple of days camping in Alderney - the Alderney Week Saturday night torchlit procession and Fireworks were fantastic - well worth the effort!
Sunday 6th - managed to get a great weather window for a smooth passage to Jersey where the wind was picking up to a F5 as we arrived making the last 10 miles round the SW lighthouse (Corbiere) a very wet end to the day!
Spent Monday looking round Jersey - Thanks Martini and Erin for your great hospitality!
Tuesday 9th (Today) waiting for the marina lock to open before heading through the Minquieres (we hope through rather than onto) and on to St Malo.
Intending to meet Martini II and Erin in Carteret on Thursday evening on our way back up the coast heading home, and back to Alderney and maybe the channel crossing on Friday - weather dependent!
Photos (though not many) to follow when I can get them off my phone!

Great day with Blue Ray & Martini II. After a meal with Blue Ray's crew last night we headed up for RV with Martini II on Chausey via a pitstop for waterskiing in the Mt. St. Michel bay.

Looks like a superb time, wish we were there.

Some excellent handling of ITR in that second vid, really good to see that there was no air when crossing M2's not inconsiderable wake.

Following the great day on Isle Chausey we went on to Gorey (Jersey) to fill up with fuel then across to Carteret for the night.
Having a lay day in Carteret (mostly because the tide is out and we can't get out until 16.30 anyway) and hopefully will meet up with Erin, Mrs E and Martini II for dinner here tonight before they take Pam and Katie back to Jersey to fly to the UK tomorrow.
Rick and I will then bash up to Alderney, fill up with Channel Rib's home made lemonade, pick up my handheld VHF which I usefully left charging when we left on Sunday, and hopefully back across to Southampton in the afternoon. It's meant to be an WSW F4 gusting 5 all day tomorrow so I think full wets and a pre-booking of the chiropractor may be in order.
