I have the thurs to weds off work to make a mini cruise out of the weekend and to widen the weather windows but I only have permission from the boss / SWMBO if the weather is 99% spot on ( allowance made for sturdy motorsailor with wheelhouse / conservatory ), I will have to pass TRs, text postion when in range etc etc, perhaps I ought to fit a AIS transponder so she can track me. I will have to wear lifejacket, be clipped on, have ERPIB is one pocket and VHF in the other. Funny thing is that when she does come for a cross channel she doozes most of the way anyway, I do all the sailing and have to worry about whether she is OK!

I might 'try' and get there this year, via Dartmouth or Brixham if the weather behaves.
Yacht 'White sox' singlehanded probably.
Not volunteering to take stragglers unless they are very flexible about the route and timing coming back, north Brittany beckonsDinner without wine is like summer without sunshine.
