Day 6 – Channel Islands & West Country 2011

The fleet enjoy a sunny rest day in Guernsey, but there is weather coming in

It has been a day of rest and exploration for the fleet. A bus ride around the Guernsey was a popular choice, for just a pound you can do the circuit of the island with some crews stopping off at Pembroke beach. Alternatively the St Peter Port high street sales were too good to miss. Everyone has been enjoying the sunny weather but there are a few burnt faces among us.

There is bad weather coming in over the next few days and Cruise Leader Neale has been keeping a close eye on it. This afternoon the decision has been made to move to Salcombe a day early.

In the evening there was the second group dinner of the cruise, a delicious BBQ at the Guernsey Yacht Club. Neale briefed the fleet with the plans for tomorrow.
