The end of May Bank Holiday weekend just happens to be my birthday weekend.
Jono and I were planning to cross to Cherburg sometime this year, and it seems that this weekend may offer the best opportunity.
The Main Plan would be to leave Poole mid Morning Saturday 1 June. Low water is 0813, but not really relevant. Highwater n Cherbourg is 1250. We would then travel back accross Sunday afternoon - having had the compuslory 'Moules & Frites' lunch (not really compulsory - but a good choice)
As this is the long Bank Holiday weekend it would also give us room for a back up plan - if the weather is poor Saturday we could pootle around Poole and travel across Sunday, or if the weather is bad for the return trip we could stay an extra day there and return Monday - even Tuesday at a push.
Hopefully you get te idea - a nice leisuely run accross from Poole to Cherbourg with some flexibility to allow for weather.
If anyone is seriously interested in joining us - could you please let me know - either put a thread on here, or PM me, or ring me on the mobile number below. You will need to be confident your RIB can make the crossing, but if there is anyone out there who has wanted to cross the channel, and would like to make that crossing in company with others this could be your ideal chance.
I will need definite information by Mid May to book the launch site (parking for trailers etc).
Let me know
