I have been persuaded by the good Mr Talbot to sample the delights of meeting in person all the lovely forumites that I have had the pleasure of slagging off in this virtual world. Talbot and SWMBO will therefore not be taking Hi Jude but instead they will come with moi on Peregrine.
Plan is to go over to Cherbourg Wednesday in daylight, raid the Hypermarket and Cave on Thursday and pootle around to St Vaast on Friday arriving about 1405 when the gates open. Anyone else going to be there then? I suspect we will be the first. Anyone not wishing to park next to Victor Meldrew avoid a Prout Snowgoose cat with a gert big stainless steel goalpost on the back. All others will find liquid refreshments being served at suitable intervals throughout the afternoon. Those sailing half a boat or "wi' a caledonian accent" will be made welcome on board if an attitude of respect for the aged is demonstrated.
Look forward to meeting you all (I think......)
