you should try Alderney. Its nearer than Jersey, smaller, quieter and much, much nicer!

Going by boat? If so, then Alderney would be a good base and you could then visit the French coast or the other islands if you wanted.

If the weather is good, Alderney would be ideal.

If you do take your own boat watch out for the tides - massive range and fast currents - especially around Alderney.

I suspect you aren't taking your own boat all the way from Norway in which case don't worry - there are loads of little ferries and there are even 2 of the big Quinquari RIBs operating out of Guernsey and Jersey.

Guernsey is a lovely place - the food is excellent if you like seafood - amazing lobsters etc.

I'll second that! The Channel Islands are *the place* for seafood. The scallops are beautifull!

Thanks !

Found this site http://www.alderney.gov.gg/ , but cant find any info with temperatures for land or water. Must have warm weather and warm water

I willl not bring my boat. The last 6 weeks I have been in the boat 6-8 hours a day, 6 days a week. This is also the reason why I dont go on a rib safari with wife and kids this summer. Need a rib brake.

Have a look at

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/

Just type in the place you want - think it works worldwide - not just UK.

Not many people realise the Channel Islands are part of the UK but not part of the EU - lucky them!!!

You know, I promised myself not to reply to your posts, but once again you come up with such drivel as though you are the Fountain of all Knowledge, I cannot help myself!! The Channel Islands are NOT part of the UK You spend five minutes in Guernsey and suddenly you are the authority on all matters concerning CI. Also, why are we so bloody lucky...?
You do not have a clue what you are talking about as usual
