    Default Re: Cross channel crew needed

    Golly, some strange comments.

    When I first posted looking for crew, the forecast looked decidedly dodgy for Saturday. Hence my vagueness about which day we might depart. Furthermore my confidence in forecasts five days or more away is low and this was another reason for my vagueness about a proposed departure day and time.

    Iíve. been watching the weather predictions over the last few days and my considered opinion is that Iím not proposing to go anywhere on Saturday and as it takes a day of so for the channel to calm down, I might not be going anywhere on Sunday either.

    Iíve just spoken to the one crew Iíve got so far and Iíve suggested that we review over the next few days and maybe think of going Sunday evening at the earliest or possibly Monday morning.

    Iíd hope that any decent skipper would be following a similar thought process. I donít make any pretences about being perfect as a skipper (God knows Iím not!) but Iím taken aback by some of the crass criticism based on assumptions.

    Now Iíve got that rant off my chest, does anyone else fancy a sail across to St Vaast.Cherbourg etc for a couple of days and get the ferry back?

    JM, what anchor(s) will you be carrying?
    We carry two anchors: a Spade bower and a Fortress kedge, and 70 metres of chain for the bow if you’re interested. The kedge has a few metres of chain and then lots of nylon rode.

    Of course drifting with two reds showing is much more sporting.
