Finally, we have made it across the channel yesterday. We left around 0600 and got into Cherbourg around 1900 UK time. There was very little wind and what there was, was on the nose of course. Still happy to finally leave the UK after so much planning. Having dinner last night on the back of the boat felt like the adventure had truly begun.
We are now in Braye Harbour, Alderney, sitting on a mooring buoy about to have a well earned beer. Alderney is the most northerly of the Channel Islands and not one we had visited before. Very small and quaint. Have wandered around the main town this afternoon but we managed to arrive on early closing day. It is obvious an island thing as the Isle of Wight does the same. As I said, quaint. Weather is now glorious having started today with mist and fog.
