St Vaast and Alderney 3rd or 4th to 7th Aug 2011

We are planning on another cross channel trip next week.
Probably going on Wednesday 3rd or Thursday 4th Aug from the Solent to St Vaast, then on to Alderney on Friday 5th. Camping in Alderney for Friday and Saturday (to see the torch-lit procession and fireworks) then on to other Channel Islands and bits of France the following week.

All this is weather dependent of course, but at the moment the weather is looking good - maybe a bit flatter on Wednesday than Thursday, but that seems to change daily!

Anyone else want to join us for all or part of the trip?
Trev

I popped a link to here from the Channel Islands get-together thread, hopefully there are still some subscribers to that one.

Maybe you'll be passing us when we are in St Vaast?

Matt, what are your plans?
We're up for another cross-channel thrash (although not all the way to Paris again!).
We need to be in London for 9 August and should be in Bournemouth for next Sat but can otherwise find work arounds.
Can shadow or ferry ....
