Cherbourg 2017

28/06/2017


 The CCSC Keelboat Cruising Group took its annual rally to Cherbourg the group left on Friday 23rd to return Sunday 25th, despite the forecast stronger winds the trip was on, a record turnout for the club was had with a total of 10 boats heading across the channel, the trip across saw winds of 15knts gusting 20knts from the Southwest, slightly lower than forecast but with the spring tides it made it an enjoyable challenge for most.
It was a clear sunny day and all boats made it in safely with good times ranging from 9.5hrs to 12hrs, the group enjoyed a superb evening meal at the La Liberty restaurant on the front opposite the Inner Harbour.
The plan to leave on Sunday for a few again saw some challenges with the breeze but a good clear day, not all left on the Sunday, but decided a trip to Alderney would be good so 5 boats headed in that direction.
All in all a great long weekend with some superb sailing conditions, good food and a few drinks to wash it down.
