|Channel Islands - Brixham to Guernsey
||A south about sail round Guernsey to St Peter Port. The wind couldnt have been better such that we got to St Peter Port Victoria Marina beforer the sill closed meaning that dinner at La Perla was on.
Unfortuantely only the 2nd half of the track was saved on the GPS. Average speed an estimate as GPS time data lost.
|Channel Islands - Alderney to Exe
||The return sail from Braye Harbour Alderney to the Exe Estuary.

|Channel Islands - Guernsey to Sark
||A cracking sail across from St Peter Port on Guernsey to the Havre Gosselin anchorage on Sark to await the favourable tides for a sail to Alderney.
Havre Gosselin is part of the large La Grand Greve bay and is a picturesque little anchorage with mooring buoys surrounded by rocky outcrops. Average speed an estimate as GPS time data lost.
|Channel Islands - Sark to Alderney
||Leaving the anchorage at Havre Gosselin at Sark through the Gouliot Passage and then via the Alderney Race and into Braye Harbour in Alderney.
Some very high speeds when travelling with the Alderney Race and at times steering about 70 to 80 degrees across it to maintain the required course. Average speed an estimate as GPS time data lost.
||First time at Brean. The Brean "strip" was something special - like a low rent Dawlish!
The Channel View Touring Park was happily a way away from Brean itself. The effect of the previous night's height of Storm Helena were plainly visible.
A short walk to the end of Brean Down - up a series of very steep steps to get on to the top of the Down. The storm hadn't completely passed - making walking to the end of the Down really quite hard work.
