Can't unfortunately accompany you but the gated marina at Le Harvre is secure and well served for vistor's moorings by way of walk ashore pontoons and relatively easy to find/access. The harbour office is in the far left hand corner of the marina. The petrol is on a pontoon in the far right hand corner of the marina and is self-service 24hrs a day at similar prices to French road service stations. There is a maximum delivery limit (from memory: 100 litres) so you may need to insert your card more than once.

Deaville is tidal but is an attractive place with Honfleur (spectacular!) just round the corner. Has diesel-not sure about petrol.
Just watch out for the nose-to-tail tanker traffic going up-river!

Thank you for advice. Le Havre seems to be the best candidate. Dates are firmed up to Thur 1st from Lymington back about 4 days later. We are still keen to find a crew member. Cross channel in a 6.5m as a solo trip is a bit scary for us without someone else to listen to for wisdom and advice!
