Subject to replacing an injector in the Optimax I am aiming to leave The Orwell at around 6a.m. next Friday with a refuelling stop in Ramsgate (approx 8.30- 9.00) then on to Boulogne for lunch and first overnight stop in Dieppe.
After Dieppe the plan is to proceed to or towards Honfleur with another overnight there or if not available Le Havre.
Not really sure from there but am considering alternative possibilities in Deauville Dives Grandcamp Maisy and if time allows may go to Cherbourg and cross from there .Around 7/8 days all in
If anyone on here is around any of the above I'll gladly buy them a beer.
The following sites were of interest

(click on photo album then 1999 to see some pictures of some of the harbours and their approaches)
