BIBOA Channel Islands Cruise
26,27 and 28 July 2002    Organiser: Charles St.Clair-Bolam

les minquiers

This cruise will commence from the Solent area on Friday 26 July 2002 heading directly to Jersey, with a large BBQ / party planned at Charles and Fiona’s St.Clair-Bolam’s home (St.Lawrence, Jersey) plus accommodation (if you are quick) in a tent on our lawn a nearby B&B or hotel. The following morning after a quick breakfast the group will depart towards the Minquiers. (Shown, Left)

A couple of hours will be spent at this wonderful reef before departing on to Illes de Chausey, some 9 miles SW of the Minquiers. On departing Chausey we head directly for Granville OR Carteret for an overnight stay. Location is to be decided closer to the time of the cruise.

The next morning it is up early for breakfast and shopping for some good French Reds and Baguettes etc. The cruise departs for the Ecrehous, halfway between Carteret and Jersey. After spending some quality time at this wonderful island the cruise then sets off to return to the UK. Members who would prefer to stay a day or two longer are most welcome to follow Charles back to Jersey.
