French Coast Cruise - Sailing Event Information

This exhilarating 9 day cross channel French coast cruise starts with meeting the crew and a meal ashore on the eve of Friday the 30th August in Port Hamble Marina, Southampton. We depart on a familiarisation sail within the Solent, before crossing the channel to Cherbourg.

Our intended destinations as we continue along the Normandy coast include some of;- St Vaast, Ouistreham, LeHavre, Fecamp and Dieppe. Continuing along possibly to Boulogne and Calais as time allows, before crossing back cross channel to the UK along the Essex coast.

The trip should include 2, 60 mile legs, for Yachtmaster qualifying passages and, easily over 400 miles travelled

As always, depending on wind, tides and crew, it may be possible to continue into Belgium before a longer channel crossing to home base. We plan to finish by 1600hrs on Sunday the 8th September at Woolversone Marina, Ipswich IP9 1AS.
