    Default Arrival times

    When is everyone planning to arrive in Cherbourg. It's a bit further from where we are especially as I want to hit the east going tides for the Cherbourg approach, unlike you Solenters who will have the textbook east and west cancelling out. I suspect we're going to arrive very late Friday night/ Saturday morning.
    It's easy to forget how great it is out on the water.

    Not looked at the tides for clearing the Solent, but it's going to be neapy so I guess we will arrive in Cherbourg 0800ishLT, on Saturday morning. Must start making arrangements with me fine crew once the bank hiliday is over.
    Never forget that you are unique, just like everyone else.

    Steve,

    HW Portsmouth is 1433 GMT, so guess we can be casting off from around 1300LT if my memory of Solent tides serves me correctly....?

    Late morning Friday, having left the Solent by midnight on Thursday, via Bembridge.

    We will start asking for definite numbers during the next couple of weeks.

    Everything is subject to the weather forecast, of course.

    13:00 might be a bit of a push for me, cos I'm meant to be in London in the morning, but I am open to persuasion if the greater good of the majority requires it.

    Steve: who's this "fine crew" of whom you speak? I thought you'd shipped a couple of no-hopers? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Trying for 4 of the 5? Are we to assume that BlowDry will be with your or not ?

    Also, I think you have the order wrong - the [--word removed--] is in the wrong place, IMHO of course!
