The third post in this thread http://www.ybw.com/forums/showthread.php?t=302193 explains how I ended up in that situation. Even the ferries were cancelled that day, as were many flights - we were due to have a crew change and had several people waiting/stuck in Jersey. On reflection, it was daft to enter Beaucettee that day and I wouldn't risk it again in similar conditions.

Try Watchet in the Bristol Channel
You have very small window to get in, when the gate opens you have 4-7 knot tides pushing you through. Then add some wind behind you.
I found out to my insurance companies expense, that get it wrong and it is crunch time.
Life is short spend it on a boat
