Re: 3 Years to prepare...and counting

I'd start by learning what it is about the Channel Islands that's different than your home cruising area. Will you have to anchor in rocky bottoms when you are used to anchoring in sand/mud? Will you have to deal with tides/currents when you have never had to consider that before? Etc etc, once you know what will be new-to-you, then study what you can & learn that. You might start with a conversation with the person who recommended the islands to you. Perhaps you could travel in company on their next trip?
