    Default Re: Scuttlebutt to Cherbourg 2005

    Will be there - Goodge can have a place as long as he dosent want to sail across the shallow bits like last year. Very much on for a St vaast - might go Thurs night or the Friday depending on lock times etc. Will be happy to book the Fuschias for the Friday night - perhaps if Jimi sets off on Weds he might make it !!!!!!

    Thursday 22nd September 1056 1645 (87) 2317 0500 (79)
    Friday 23rd 1133 1715 (70) 2356 0525 (61)
    Sat 24th ----- ----- 1212 1740 (52)

    are the St Vaast opening times. Fig in brackets is the tidal coefficient (the weekend before was 111 which would have been interesting)

    Not the best times to leave St Vaast and make Cherbourg in comfort (or an early start!)
    Looks like an overnighter from Haslar on Thursday if we want to eat in town.

    Good to hear from you Cutter, glad you can make it.

    No St Vaast for me this year - I will have been there twice this year already, after this coming weekend. Also, we are unlikely to leave the SOlent until Friday morning and I want to be in Cherbourg early on Saturday.

    Shift your arrow approx 1 cm right and you've got it!

    There's always been plenty space on the viz pontoons at that time of year.
    Next time, it'll all be different.

    Nigel,

    Down to Solent from where?

    I'll be driving down from East Midlands, and happy to drive via Stansted if timings match up (i'm crewing for StugeronSteve, but not got round to discussing his planned departure/return dates/times yet).... it makes little diference if I go clockwise or anticlockwise round the M25... PM me...
