    Default St vaast on friday?

    Tides look good: the St V lock hours are on the internet, on the fri open 1636-2105 so good for entering in time for a run ashore, on the sat HW at 0805 and lock open till 1016 so good for a morning depature and the west going ebb round to Cherbourg. Times french local I assume.

    Hello there. PM sent from friendly forumite
    Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can't, you're probably right.

    Who is leaving from the eastern Solent area? I wouldn’t mind doing my first crossing with a bit company if anyone fancies helping a newbie.

    Yes, we are leaving from Chichester, but most likely on Weds, going to St Vast.

    That seems to be the first time for ages that the tides have favoured the St Vaast stop (rather odd as we usually seem to aim for neaps).

    If I have a strong enough crew I will try leaving a little after midnight on Friday, aiming to get to St Vaast about 1700. Otherwise leave a few hours later and head straight to Cherbourg. Departure this year from Chichester Marina
