Don't bother. We sail to France/CIs virtually every year and have never been asked for one. Anyway, we should kick against all this sort of stupid regulation.

Would be keen to go during kids Summer Holidays

I think you'll find Steve that some want to go for the weekend and some for a week. If you could combine the two sets of RIBbers in either an outward leg or return leg then you'd manage to get at least one big cruise.

I only favor long wekends as my Missus isn't as water bourne as I am and have to be mindful of the family holiday breaks

D DAY beaches

I really want to do a trip from Chichester to Cherbourg St Vaas and the D Day beaches ( Arromanches) and then up the canal passing under Pegasus bridge into Caen city centre . Stay 1 night and then return . 6th June the obvious date but weather work etc will dictate that a little. Anyone up for it .

Wish I was...

If you're going that way anyway then it's well worth getting a picnic and spending a day exploring the Napoleonic fort on Iles Saint-Marcouf. You'll need a tender to do it as the shore is quite rocky but access is easy.

I know this complicate matters but have you thought of taking your ribs to France on a ferry behind a car and then driving them down to southern Brittany or Vendée ? There are plenty of beautiful islands that are really worth visiting in the area. It's ideal ground for RIB cruises.

I love Brittany , its a bit like Cornwall but unspoiled . The cost of the ferry from this end of the country is prohibitive these days and with a trailer behind it would be crazy .
