Channel Islands & France 2016
300.2 nautical miles travelled, 64 hours and 49 minutes sailed, 2 islands, 2 countries, 2 rivers and one anchorage.
At the end of May 2016 there was a Starcross Yacht Club "cruise in company" to the Channel Islands and France. Derek H kindly offered me a place on his Sadler 26 yacht. The table below links to GPS tracks and some photos from that trip.
We left SYC on the Exe Estuary on Friday 27th May for Brixham (in Devon), then to St Peter Port on Guernsey, on to Dixcart Bay on Sark, on to to Treguier in France, back to St Peter Port and finally back to SYC on the Exe (4th June).
