Before we go on our adventure, we would like to sail the south coast, into London and may be hop over the channel for some cheap booze a few times. We would share marina fees, food etc. in England. Never did this may be one day my grandchildren will take me.
We will be leaving around the end of July 2005. You could join me for some of the time sailing, down the French or straight across the Bay of Biscay and Portuguese coast to Gibraltar and get a train/bus/fly back. Thanks Malcome, Could not have done it with out you.
