Yep, know that, there are quite a few places around!
Main issue with Alderney of course is how to get home since the plane would be at Dinard. That might work actually, I could come up in the boat and GD could fly over
Hmm well I'm not sure there's so much to sort now, as if it breaks again we've got about three of everything so I'm sure we'll survive. And if it plays up the HX851 handheld that GD bought (Slightly on a whim I might add
) in November last year should come in handy.
Yes I bear Drivers in mind and the whole drystack idea in general, it's just a question of how damned expensive this whole malarky could become very quickly
. The other issue would be that we'd probably want to go out at some stage. a) it would be a shame to waste the oppotunity to make my uncle (with the sunseeker) go out (he put 3 hours on his boat in the entire season last year - one trip to Poole and back overnight - and that was only cos we were there to help, he's done 186 hours on his boat in ten years. We did 100 hours last season alone, and I dare say got alot more enjoyment out of it - the mooring is just such a pain
) b) it would be a shame to miss out on the opportunity to cruise with some people on the Solent sometime, S'tn is only a couple of hours drive and to have any boat accessible from home will be the first time for us.
It's just a bit difficult to organise the Scillies on the 25th, CapBreizh on the 17th then Alderney the following week. Thank god it's GCSE year and we get out early!
