Tuesday 17th July

     Sail to St Helier Jersey, 29 Nautical Miles from St Peter Port

  • There are two options for this leg, either leave St Peter Port early morning around LW 04-40 BST and sail direct to St Helier Marina where the marina gate will be open until 13-32 BST, avoiding a wait on the holding pontoon
  • Or, tides are favourable to allow an early afternoon departure from St Peter Port and a late afternoon arrival in St Hellier and moor on the marina holding pontoon, before proceeding into the marina when the gate opens at 19-46 BST
  • Be aware that there are considerable swirls of water in the St Helier Marina when the gate is opened. If moored ensure your lines and critically springs are well set. If underway awaiting the opening you will need to be prepared for sudden strong currents

PASSAGE INFORMATION

Saturday 14th July - Salcombe to St Peter Port

Although crossing the channel for the first time can be quite daunting, the crossing from Salcombe is perfectly straightforward and with the prevailing Westerly or South Westerly winds is very pleasant. While there are the obvious shipping lanes to be aware of, you should be well clear of the Casquets Traffic Separation Zone (TSS). Other than this there are no hazards to worry about until approaching the island itself.
