Day 12 – Channel Islands & Brittany Cruise

A rest day in Binic. Guernsey is on the horizon for tomorrow...

Today crews have enjoyed a rest day in Binic. After a lazy lie-in the day was spent stocking up on supplies of local food and wine and exploring the town. Binic is a quaint little french town with beaches either side and a sheltered basin. The weather has been warm and sunny today with the occasional shower.

Some crews travelled further afield today. George and Bill from Time Lost hired a car to visit St Malo and Dinan. Penny and Stephen from Gîte walked all the way to St Quay Portrieux, it took them 2 hours to do the round trip of approximately 20 kilometres along the coast path. Other crews stayed local – the two boats with tiny tots onboard, Aurora and Breeze went to the beach.

There was a briefing on the pontoon at 6pm followed by a pontoon party. Neale informed crews of the plans for tomorrows passage to St Peter Port, Guernsey. The fleet will depart with the first gate opening at 0650hrs. It will be a 52-mile passage taking an average of two and half hours depending on the conditions.
