    Ken,

    I distinctly heard Nicho say that he wanted to sail with you again, as he enjoyed the slog out to the dark side of the IOW......

    OK! I missed the chance last year having no boat at the time, but this year I'm in!

    I may have crew places, will confirm later.

    Default Doris to Cherbourg

    Doris Minor will be making it this year so long as no-one has bought her. Haven't even thought of crew yet!

    Default OK - if small boats like me .... any link-ups ??

    Just a thought .... there may be other small boats like mine on this jolly .... I'm a 25ft motor-sailer .... I'll be setting off from East Solent via Nab to Cherbourg .... (at least hope so - have to check work req'ts !!) .... now anyone else in slow sailing job like mine ? Would be nice to link-up and sail across together ... not only moral support but also safety in numbers ... not that my boat is unsafe - far from it ...

    Can anyone give an idea of costs on this jolly - actually which Yacht Club / basin etc. at Cherbourg end - is it the one inside the second breakwater before Basin de Commerce ? etc.

    Are small boats like me going to be sorted into moorings suitable instead of a holy free-for all of 40's, 30's and 20's all jostling ??? Sorry to be a pain .... but having had a 'large' boat sit against me in a raft before ..... I'm not one for a repeat !! (I was ashore and came back to the situation ... !!)

    I'm not trying to add to the work-load ... just interested !!

    So anyone who fancies a link up for the crossing ..... PM me please .....

    Nigel ,

    Re Chbg, we tend to tie up on the eastern visitors pontoons in Chantereyne Marina (P&Q?), so no rafting, finger pontoon suitable for up to approx 38'. longer boats lie outside the last walkway, alongside, and may have to raft two deep.

    Cost - normal Chatereyne fees - from memory about 20€ a night for a boat your size. Communal meal will be approx 30€ per head with some wine included. What you spend on extra wine, or elsewhere ashore apart from that is up to you.

    Quite a lot of boats made the crossing last year, so there's usually one or two people in sight, but I'm not aware that previously there were any buddy boats. But there are no rules, so if you want to gang up, please do. We nominate a working channel so 'butters can VHF each other if neccessary. We also circ mobile phone numbers so calls can be made person to person while in moby range.
    Next time, it'll all be different.
