Starts Chichester Harbour, ends St Malo
Skipper: Dhara Thompson
You’ll be onboard from 1800 on Sunday 18th August for dinner and a briefing, before a brief rest. The aim, weather permitting, will be for an overnight passage, leaving Chichester harbour around midnight, aiming for St Peter Port in Guernsey. Our back up plan will be Braye Habour on Alderney. Tuesday we’ll be sailing to St Malo. The two days will involve keeping watches, crossing the channel shipping lanes and negotiating the tidal streams of the Channel Islands. On this milebuilder there will be plenty of opportunity to brush up on your navigation skills as well as gain some useful nautical miles. Everyone is welcome to stay onboard Tuesday 20th. The St Malo to Portsmouth ferry departs 1030 On Wednesday, arriving Portsmouth 1820, with foot passenger fares at £39 per person. You will need to book your own ferry place. No previous experience required, although you may like to try a shorter trip first if you haven’t sailed before.
Distance: Around 160 nautical miles
