Departure date

Lucilla (my sister) asked what date we were leaving, having accurately calculated from the posting below (La Coruna Dreaming) that it should be 18 June.

Guy's last GCSE exam is on the 16th so we plan to leave over the weekend 17/18 June ... weather and readiness permitting, of course.

Our first hop will only be to Ramsgate, a trip we've done a number of times. Then we need to reach the Channel Islands and we will probably go down the French side, because we have pilots and charts for it and have been as far as Fecamp last summer. The English side means a long hop from Dover to Eastbourne with nothing but cliffs en route. Anyway, being in France is more interesting than Brighton or Portsmouth!
