You do not have a clue what you are talking about as usual
Ok but they ARE part of Great Britain!!! Small slip - humble apologies!!!

I think many people consider themselves to be lucky living in such a beautiful place - obviously you don't......

I make a simple INNOCENT comment - ever heard the words "attitude problem"????

Both the sea temperature and the land temperature are slightly warmer in Guernsey and Jersey than they are in Alderney. Bigger land masses and shallower waters help make the difference. But serenity and peacefulness can't be beaten in Alderney.

This might seem like a really silly question but do you need a passport to go to the Channel Islands? Will a photo driving license be sufficient?

Last time I was in Guernsey (many years ago) you didn't need one but it's probably advisable if you take your own boat. You're not far from French territorial waters and if you do have to pass through/stop off it could cause a problem. If you're unfortunate enough to run into French customs they were arseholes of the highest order-worse than ours- from my recollection.

Correct me if I'm wrong here please.

In Jersey you can normaly expect 16 degre sea temp, and 20+ air temp in july, we have lovely beaches and coves, lots of places to visit including maritime museme and a offshore (at high water) castle, you can can spend all day in the sun traped bays, and 10 miles of north cost head land foot paths to walk. hotels by the marina. www.jersey.com
there are lots of ribs in jersey showing there versatility for visiting the smaller islands including plateau des minquies and les ecrehou, sark etc. can't go wrong. also loads of very good restrants.

Nick
