Clacton > Margate > Clacton is definatly on first week of July as it's going to be a charity fundraiser

Lee to Brixham/Torquay is a possibility

Would love to do Scilly isles

Maybe cross channel ;~)

I've got a few in mind for next year, was going to start threads in the new year. My initial thoughts are:

Apr/May maybe easter - Paris
end of June - Falmouth and Scillies
end of July - Alderney Gathering

Any tide next year with a coefficient > 110 = somewhere shallow in Normandy
Any tide next year with a coefficient > 80 but < 110 = Mont St. Michel
Easter - Paris/Rouen/Carentan or maybe Ouessant
Other places I'd like to go next year: Brehat, another trip to Roches Douvres, Casquets, Goury, Dahouet.

Channel Islands end of June, maybe before if there is a weather window that falls on a weekend as well!

going to try and go west as well this year, maybe falmouth as target destination with a few stops on the way!

I'm planning three or four short "smoke generation" cruises. 10 hrs of running at at 25:1 at restricted RPM should be enough time to plan something more exciting!

I'm kinda in Limbo for next season, hopefully I'll be ribless by the time the weather settles. So restricted to bay-hopping in the inflatable bathtub and cadged trips as crew.

Of course, I've put my name on Redbay's Destructive Tester Panel, so fingers crossed. With enough fuel in the tanks, the entire Western Seaboard of the UK is vulnerable, I mean reachable...

Other places I'd like to go next year: Brehat, another trip to Roches Douvres, Casquets, Goury, Dahouet.
They all seem like great suggestions. We went to Brehat last year, and it is truly spectacular, just round the corner from there is Les Sept Iles, and slightly further round Ploumanach which is even more incredible than Brehat.

Sounds good

We also floated the idea last year about a St. Malo trip or somewhere fairly close round there. Martin seemed keen Especially with Simon around there too now

There is some talk of extending the Alderney cruise to a week and continuing further south but it's early days I guess

Yeah, thats what I was thinking of. AFAIK Blue Ray is planning to spend much of the summer in Brittany, on the north coast instead of their usual southern stomping ground.

I've mentioned it before to many of you, but I'll just plug it once more...

...This is a superb book covering all the CIs and nearly all of Brittany & a little of Normandy. Well worth it
