    Alderney 2019

    I will be berthing in Alderney, to save cost for the crew and less distance to cover also the B&B's are very understanding about cancelling. No pre- booking in Guernsey I think, you are not likely to need it in May, a call to the harbour master before you leave should put your mind at rest about berth availability.

    Alderney 2019

    Good to see many of the usual guys planning to go and Loobie IV, good stuff Jerry. Oli, Diane and I spent a few days on Tigerfish in Guernsey last summer we stayed in the inner harbour of St Peter Port. Nice place to stay but the tidal issues getting over the sill does not make it very practical for going out fishing every day. The harbour master shared with me some quite amusing stories about boats not getting in right when crossing the sill, all the while showing me scars on the sill recalling how they occured... The outside pontoons are mostly walk ashore now, these should be fine and early season there should be space. When we were there everything was busy and we were advised to use the inner harbour as it would be A calmer and B we would not be woken up at 4:00 in the morning as a flotilla of yacht's was leaving, there was also very little available space outside anyway. For a place to stay well loads of choice, nothing is low cost. Lots of nice places to eat. Diesel is slightly lower cost than Alderney and accessible at more states of the tide, the chandery there is good too.

    Alderney 2019

    Yup, It's January, now Christmas is out of the way time to think about visiting Alderney to sample it's fishing. Last year the fishing wasn't great there but that's not going to stop me having another try this year, and as anyone who has been there know's it's not all about the fishing. Tide wise the weekends round the 11/12 May and 25/26 May look favourite, ie neap tides. I'm going to plan to go around the weekend of the 11/12 May with the 25/26 as a backup, so the 10th to the 13th May with some possible flex round that. The tides on the 11/12 and the following Monday and Tuesday are not that small, but I'm starting to think a really small tide doesn't really switch the predatory fish on and certainly a bit of tide over the wrecks is helpful in getting the fish feeding. Another possible weekend is around the 27/28 April, I can't do that date. The bank holiday is on the 6th May, and it's right smack in the springs! Who's up for going? Jerry?....

    Well the AMO effect could explain the lack of cod in the channel.

    Fuel prices

    The price difference between diesel and petrol increases every winter and reduces every summer. There is more demand for diesel in the cold weather for heating and the law of supply and demand applies. What gets my goat is the prices charged by Motorway services, a complete and utter rip off. I plan my journey to avoid using them.
