Following the AGM, here are some more details for the Morbihan event.
Commencement will be 1st or 2nd June - some folk may wish to make this a one week affair others will be staying for 2 weeks. There should be no problem in arranging the itinerary at the time to make it easy for one week folk to leave as the favourite locations are dotted around the home base of La Trinite - nothing is too far away.
There was good support for this event at the AGM so here's hoping for a good turnout - it's a great location as has been mentioned previously but if you want any more background information do please ask. If you are new to this there are a few extra things to think about but it's all been done before so we can help you with the checklist!
Confirmed definites so far are:-
Hera - Mike and Bobbie McNerney with guest crew David Holmes
Humbug - David and Chery Robbens
I will let La Trinite marina know of our plans although launching/parking etc is usually straightforward and all forward destinations are available on an ad hoc basis.
The main thing is to get ferry crossings booked so if you are interested I do suggest you consider trying to confirm as soon as you can and aim to book your ferry early.
Portsmouth - St Malo has been used in the past although there is the option of the short Dover-Calais route with a longer driving leg to the journey. Plymouth - Roscoff has been mentioned - I think some folk too this route in the past - it depends to some extent on where you live. Distance down to Plymouth from the North is actually not that much more than to Portsmouth. Ferry crossing is a good bit cheaper and journey distance the other side is very similar from Roscoff or St Malo. (I don't know what the Roscoff roads are like - does anyone know? There are other possibilities as well but I think these are the main ones.
Plymouth sailings every day, Portsmouth not on a Tuesday
That's about it for now - look forward to hearing from those who want to confirm and/or any queries
