    Default Passage plans

    This year we will be crossing to St Vaast on Thursday, leaving Chi around 06.30. We will move around to Cherbourg on Sat AM. We will be leaving Cherbourg on Monday early AM.

    Hope have some company in St Vaast and on Sunday in Cherbourg.

    Not sure yet; I'll have to ask the skipper.

    Best bet is to follow one of the ferries out of the Solent, although this backfired one year when we followed one with a green funnel and ended up in Cork ( Stugeron Steve)

    We loved doing St Vaast first but laying in supplies for the pontoon gathering is a bit of a rush so going straight to cherbourg this year.

    I start it off with a selection of wines and beers and nibbles and most kindly add to the selection so please feel free to add a bottle and nibbles but its been so sucessful in the last few years that consumption has outstripped availability and I have then again raided our mornings purchases from Majestic to ensure the constant flow of alcohol.

    Just like everyone to have a good time.

    Current plan is to head over to Cherbourg on Friday - early start - aiming to be in late afternoon. Departure point is under review as it depends on the weather! I'm not bashing into a SW F6+ again ...

    Returning on Sunday ...

    Departure point will be from the Solent now ...

    If going from Chi then it will be a 0630(ish) run out to get the flow down the back of the island ...

    If the wind looks like South of SW then we may run up to the other end to get a better attack ...
