Channel Islands (again) - Thursday 9th Aug for the end of Alderney Week
Following the great cruise we had a few weeks ago, we're hoping to go back again next week to see the end of Alderney Week.
XC Weather at the moment is showing good conditions for the end of next week - but of course this may change!

Our plan at the moment is to leave Yarmouth Thursday morning and camp on Alderney until the Sunday. If the wind looks like it may pick up the girls (Pam and Katie) may opt to fly to Guernsey to avoid the long crossing, and we'll head there 1st.
If this is the case we might spend a night on Herm so Katie can tick it off her "to-do" list.

Anyone else want to join us or meet us there?

As long as it's not raining, the end of week Procession and Fireworks on Saturday night really are spectacular!

Hi Trevor, got your text cheers.

I was originally planning to go up this weekend for the beginning of Alderney Week but with 5's and 6's forecast I don't think so!

As for the week after, I haven't thought that far ahead but if the forecast is good enough for me to warrant booking time off work then I may well go for it.

I'll be in the big boat as the rib's out of action at the mo. Initially I thought it wouldn't be viable to pick the girls up from Guernsey but surprisingly it only adds about 6 miles to the journey, extra half hour and 20 so not the end of the world!

I do remember the last mercy mission to Carteret though... :sick:

My plan was to go up this Saturday with Cap Breizh who were going to stay on Alderney but they have postponed that until the following week. Pikey Dave is going to be around the Cherbourg area for the next couple of weeks and I had planned to have lunch with him on Monday but I'm sure we could postpone that until the next week and all go round there together?

We may have started out west by then but if the weather here is looking good then it could turn into a really good weekend. I'll highlight this thread to cap Breizh because I'm sure they would be interested to meet up with some of you "British" ribber as they call them.. They are coming over from Cherbourg on Saturday morning and camping at Saye but I'll be heading up from St. Malo.

If it's just Alderney or Guernsey and back I may be able to keep it down to closer to 250 litres.
If I can fuel at Guernsey that'll be under 300 - so cost per day for the family will be 75. Same as a family ticket for Thorpe Park, so I can live with that!

And the rides won't have a patch on a bit of chop in the Swinge :)
