St Vaast la Hougue France 4/5 - 6 Sept

Having resolved at the start of the year to organise a trip to France, I'm finally getting around to it.

Am proposing to cross from the Western Solent on either Friday 4 September (for a two night stay) or Saturday 5 September (for a one night stay) to St Vaast la Hougue and return on Sunday 6 September.

St Vaast is a small port about 10M south of Barfleur on the Eastern coast of the Cherbourg peninsular and, for those that were on the Alderney run, is about the same distance with a similar crossing time. Entrance to the marina is by a lock gate necessitating an arrival by 12.55 BST on 4 Sept or 13.27 BST on 5 Sept. The town has a camp-site and a number of hotels in a range of price brackets. Details of the town and facilities are available at: http://www.saint-vaast-reville.com/en-GB/index.html (the English site is still under development: let me know if anyone needs any translation!)

We would only want to do the crossing in company: we already have a couple of interested others but does anyone want to join us?

David

Don't mess about with campsites etc, stay here... http://www.france-fuchsias.com/UK/cadreAn.html

and ask for a table in the conservatory. You'll have a fantastic meal that you'll remember for years to come.

If you're going to Saint Vaast and want something a bit uot of the ordinary to do,it's worth going and taking a look at the fort on Iles Saint Marcouf.

Might well be up for this one. Was there again on the 'mother ship' last month and supplies from Maison Gosselin are already running low!

P.S. Petrol and Diesel available without assistance of harbour office via 'card machine' on the dock a la Tesco! Not cheap though.
P.P.S. Are the other 'interested parties' from the Davis Clan?

Hi David

Could you pen me in for this one, the Sat/Sun would be better for us, as Mrs 250kts could not get the Fri off (teacher!).

Regards Steve
