I have been ask to start to organise the Alderney cruise for later this year and thought it would be best to start a new thread
Nothing is set in stone as to what to do where to go etc I'm just after Ideas on what everyone is thinking
Notes from the previous post
Sat Morning cruise over around 3 hours at 20 MPH look round, Food, Beer, etc etc Sun Gather thoughts look round, cruise back
POW camp sounds interesting as does the Vat free chandlery
I'm not a navigator so I'll leave that to a willing volunteer to sort tides, passage plans etc etc can we have pretty pictures like in the IOW thread please
As for accommodation if we are going to have multiple dates for this, we can't really book a hotel/B&B so camping is the only real economical option.
Also if we set a date in stone and the weather is not suitable are we going to have a contingency plan for a weekend around the Solent? of course this will still result in losing your money for the hotel reservation but at least we still get a weekend on/near the water
So first of all we need a list of attendees I think, who's taking there boat and who would like to crew to get an Idea of numbers
I for one would like passage as crew, obviously sharing the cost plus a few beers and boring stories
It was mentioned that VHF for all and at least one boat with radar. I assume we all have VHF but does anyone have Radar?
I've probably forgotten lots of detail but I/we can keep adding to it as we go along
