New owner - Assistance St Helier to St Malo?

We have a new owner of a ZAR 65 looking for assistance with a passage from St Helier to St Malo probably 09/01/11 or 10/01/11.

Payment of beer tokens and return ferry to Jersey, or equivalent contribution to fuel for a cruise in company, for anyone with local knowledge prepared to lend a hand.

Please call me on 07900 693707 or email dan@powerboatcompany.co.uk if interested?

Many thanks

Dan

What do you reckon Martini? Will the hangover have worn off to be able to assist?

Go out of St Helier, turn left a bit to avoid the rocky bit, turn right due south, keep going straight for a bit then turn right, keep going right then double back left to go in the main ships channel.. just go between the red and green. simples

Is this a delivery for someone in St. M? Got a boatyard in mind to store it at?

Seriously though, it's very straight forward, presumably the chap comes from St. Malo and so may be familiar with the approach which is the trickiest bit. We do the trip regularly and have done it in 1hr 7mins, but when its rough this can be much longer. On a fairly conservative routing it is around 34 mile which with a sensible driver is around 1hr 45. We tend to go outside the Minquiers cardinals, but there are shorter routings for those experienced. If you need more info, don't hesitate to PM Gotchidad (not me) he's the serious one in the outfit

Forecast not looking so good for the weekend. F7 and 8's. Probably fine for Gotchi , but not sure I'd want to be on an unknown (to me) boat in that.

T'was force 6 gusting 8 that day, but 7/8 is a bit much for GD, course, with my ICC I can do it myself now

Probably ok for that nice "Esquina" (ex Corryveckyran) though don't you think Incidentally.. that's always parked up next to "La Fret" anything to do with you?

Oh. Fair enough where does La Frette come from anyway, anything apart from the obvious?

To plow a furrow is the main translation, but in old CI French it can mean a patch of calm water amidst a turbulent area (or so I've been told). Both quite apt IMV

Should have mentioned obviously weather permitting, so if anyone is able to help there is obviously flexibility on dates.

Thanks for the sat nav Gotchiguy but I think that proves why the guy is looking for some help
