From feedback so far, it looks like Sat/Sun is the one to go for. It was my preferred option but thought I'd better offer a choice: I'm not sure that there's more than 24 hours worth of things to do in St Vaast itself (although there are various places to see nearby).

Yes: interest expressed when proposed a couple of weeks ago but I haven't mentioned it further since.

Those interested so far appear to be:

Avocet, BassBoy, Mick Balch, 250kts, Maximus and Lurcher.

I'm away in Scotland from today with difficult internet access (part of the attraction!) so won't be around for the next two weeks. Lack of postings won't mean that I've lost enthusiasm and I'll make contact with the above and any others who express an interest in the meantime, once I'm back.

St Vaast la Hougue: 5 - 6 September

I've restarted this thread as a new one since the one night trip is preferred to the two night one (perhaps JK or the other mods can insert the old posts ahead of this to keep it as a single post?).

Interested parties to date seem to be:

Avocet, BassBoy, Mick Balch, 250kts, Maximus, Lurcher, Roy Smith, bedajim, HumberTiger, KTNV and Tex.

That's the good news .....

.... the bad news is that the two hotels in the town and the two B&B's that do one night stays (the others have two night minimum stays) are all fully booked.

Additionally, the Fuchsias restaurant (attached to the Hotel de France) has given me and Mrs A their last table for the evening of the 5th and have indicated that more people cannot be accommodated. (We are not minded to eat on our own and can cancel the booking.)

Against this, the camp site has indicated that there are plenty of pitches available that week-end and that pre-booking is unnecessary.

Given that the point of the trip was to stay at the Hotel de France (somewhat upmarket but a good pamper) and eat in its restaurant (excellent sea-food), we seem to have been somewhat thwarted, however....

The options seem to be:

1. Go anyway (weather permitting), camp and eat in one of the other restaurants/brasseries (of which there are several) and possibly rearrange another trip more in advance for next Spring.

2. Go somewhere else (Cherbourg? - although I'm open to suggestions)

3. Postpone the crossing to another week-end (although the weather for a suitable crossing is likely to start to deteriorate, and Mrs A and I are in some difficulty getting away for week-ends once term restarts since Master and Miss A have Saturday school)

Given the above problems, I've not yet contacted the harbourmaster to enquire about berths but will need to do so before finalising arrangements.

What do people think/prefer/want?

Look forward to hearing from you

David
