    Quick question, (No tidal atlas to hand)...


    Does the back current from St Vaast to the point run in both directions or just north bound (as the tide runs south/South east)?

    Never noticed much of a back eddy off St. Vaast. If bound South I leave as soon as the gate opens and that gives me 2 or 3 hours of fair tide to get to Carentan or Grandcamp on the same tide. If bound North or West leave about 2 or 3 hours after the gate opens and you will have fair tide round Barfleaur and all the way to Cherbourg.

    St Vaast I think - the tidal gate at the entrance is quite narrow.

    I've been told that Rick's cat is massive but I still reckon it will squeeze through the entrance to the petit rade

    If I recall correctly he is about 5ft longer and maybe 1ft wider than mine

    Just for the avoidance of doubt - I meant the petite rade at Cherbourg, not St Vaast!

    Yes.

    However, he will be unable to secure to the finger berths, so will have to hope (like me) that there is space on the outside of Q.

    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 ...
