Sark Folk Festival Jul 6-10th 2023

I have been asked to arrange a Channel crossing that coincides with the Sark Folk Fest this year, the event itself runs from the 7th to the 9th so the plan would be to add a day at each end to explore Herm and Guernsey

Very much weather dependant, but could be an amazing few days

Start would be Plymouth, but may coast hop to Salcombe before the crossing to meet up with any Easties as we have to go past anyway

Sark is great - stayed and dived there a few times in the past. Went with South coast based dive boats. Can be a bit naughty coming back through the Alderney race.

Funnily enough the two trips I have always wanted to do is Sark (and Channel Islands in general) and the Scillies

Would do the same as you skip along to Salcombe and head out from there

Would be interested possibly launching from Salcombe as coming from the north and familiar with Salcombe facilities etc. Were you planning on camping? Roughly how many Nm?

Salcombe to Sark is 70nm, I suspect we would stop off in St Peterport for a top up of fuel

Its my plan to camp, but the island has several options all of which are very cool

Donít you have to stop in St Peter Port to clear customs anyway?

I believe that became a requirement last year along with logging your passage plan with approximate departure and arrival times with Border Force/HMRC online [or possibly by phone].
