Cross Channel - Hamble - Cherbourg


The plan is to go from Hamble to Cherbourg and back over the weekend (subject to weather etc at the time). They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb though, so traditionally the weather is often quite benign at this time of year. As with all sailing trips plans can change, but I am keeping my fingers crossed because I think we're owed quite a lot of nice weather for the remainder of this year!

The boat we'll use is a fully MCA coded Beneteau Oceanis 37. It is a very recent boat in tip top condition, and unlike many other charter companies the one supplying our boat includes cleaning at the end, so instead of spending a couple of hours scrubbing it down you can just grab your gear and leave at the end of the trip. The boat also has full diesel central heating. Quality wet weather gear can be hired from the charter company for a reasonable fee too - let me know if you need it.


Everyone is welcome as long as they are:

in a position to pay for their share at the time of signing up or shortly after
