That's what we did last Friday. On the most calm, blue water of the English Channel, we sailed from Poole, Dorset to St. Peter's Port, Guernsey. What a wonderful adventure especially for me because I am a terrible sailor. Thankfully though, the sea was like a mill pond, the sky was completely cloudless and the temperature soared to at least 80deg F.
It was a long day. The boat was half an hour late setting back too so the 3.5hr trip each way was a long time. I wouldn't have missed it for the world and it gave me another fantastic sight on coming back into Poole -
