|Vessel Make/Model:||Najad 405|
|Hailing Port:||Suffolk Yacht Harbour, UK|
|Crew:||Simon, Fiona and Bella the dog!|
|About:||Simon and Fiona had Brindabella built in Sweden before she was launched in 2009. They sailed her from Sweden back to Suffolk in the UK.|
We left Dover on our final leg of the cruise, bound for Suffolk Yacht Harbour on the River Orwell.
In order to take Bella back to the UK she needs to travel in a car on a registered ferry route.
The Saturday market in Dieppe is one of the best in Normandy. We restocked the boat again and had a small roast chicken for lunch. Very nice…
We had 3 hours sleep having got in to Le Havre at 1am, to bed by 2am and were up again, ready to move at 5am.
There was a dilemma as to where to go next.
We left Dielette early on Wednesday and had one of the best sails of the holiday, out to the Alderney Race and round to Cherbourg.
Carteret is a new port we have not been to before, so we had 5 nights there. The weather was a bit mixed, so we did a number of different things.
As is tradition, we had a cooked breakfast that morning at anchor. It was a beautiful day and the sun was out.
We needed to do some work on Monday morning so stayed on the boat. In the afternoon we went for a walk around St Malo and then a meal out with Leading Wind, Cassadora and Mazza II in the evening. A very pleasant evening was had by all!
We had re-joined the cruise in St Quay, meeting up with Leading Wind, Cassadora, Mazza II and Shades of Blue. We all had a meal out on the night we arrived.
