First Channel Crossing Cruise For Some Time

Submitted by ray259

1st July saw the Bailiwick of Guernsey opening their borders to visitors from the UK who'd received their double vaccinations. A plan was soon hatched for a cruise in company across the channel, the first for some in a long time. Four boats, Arcsine, Crystella, Nutcracker and Moonshadow all showed a keen interest on originally setting out on Saturday 24th July, however, as often happens, a sharp change in the weather outlook including storms on Saturday meant an earlier than planned Thursday departure gave the only possible weather window. Unfortunately, this ruled out Moonshadow from making the trip due to other commitments.

Submitted by hen1064

Our walk yesterday was a fantastic success- the weather gave us the perfect conditions and the YOBs and helpers were ready for the challenge. Our friends at CoastWatch waved each team off, the lovely Boatfolk at Portland Marina laid on hot chocolate and Easter eggs, and at the finish, the Club had donated soft drinks & snacks to join the delicious cakes that Daf Samways had baked for us all. Cash donations were received during the day taking our donation total to £2205, to be shared equally between CoastWatch and the YOBs.
