    After rather a busy time at work.. thinking of adding Jubilant to the list of boats.. Did you ever hear from any others who are planning on going to St Vaast on the Friday? It sounds like a good option to me then on to Cherbourg on the Saturday morning... Catch up with you in the week..

    Oh good. We'll have a shore party to book the resto, take our lines, etc.

    Table for three by the window, please.

    No problem, and what time would sir like to eat? I'll have an operative stationed on the pontoons to take your lines. Please be listening on Ch69 (going down) for berthing instructions.
