Hello Michael,

I would totally endorse Piers' views about Victoria Marina, especially if any significant easterly winds are expected. We were in there a few years ago in an easterly gale which resulted in a cleat parting company with the pontoon and damaging our topsides. On subsequent visits we were able to secure a place in the Elizabeth Marina which has a slightly more sheltered entrance although still exposed to the north east. I would be very much inclined to move to St Helier as it provides much better protection. We have ridden out a few gales there with acceptable surge even when the wind has been in the south.

All the best,
