Adventures in Alderney and final Au Revoirs. 20/08/2017

On Thursday afternoon the rally departed for Alderney, marking the last stop in the Channel Islands, before returning to Gosport.Conditions were good with Southerly winds and a calm sea state. A pod of dolphins greeted the fleet as they departed Guernsey marina, making for some great picture opportunities. The wind started to drop as the day went on and the majority of the fleet decided to motor sail, insuring they got through the Alderney race with a following tide. The race has a reputation of being extremely fierce if caught at the wrong time. The rally kept in radio contact and relayed information on the sea state and tide when they passed through the race insuring no one was left out. Steve from Omnishambles commented on the passage “The rally support from both staff and other... Click here for more info..
