London to Cherbourg France

Bye London.

40 hours to Cherbourg for the 75th Anniversary of the D Day landings incl a ticket to see a President speak 🙂

Looks like a bit of motoring. And coolish.

Nice, my Grandfather landed on Juno Beach with the Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Highlanders on D-Day.

It would be cool if you saved your SPOT track or whatever, that last thread you did about a channel crossing was interesting.

36 hours. Very easy motor sailing as the wind was a bit light.

Re: London to Cherbourg France

Nice Mark. I think you have about a month before the D-Day presentation? What's on the itinerary? Cycling? Bussing up to see the Notre Dame Cathedral? Inquiring minds want to know

Re: London to Cherbourg France

You have lots of time. Check out Bayeux and the "tapestry". Great story. Boats! Also, in Honfleur, along with the harbor, the 15th century St. Catherine's church has a roof that was built like two upside-down hulls. The Bishop hired boatbuilders to finish it since the carpenters went on strike. Caen is where the Tower of London's stone came from. William the Conqueror's castle is still there, despite Allied bombing in WWII. Beware of Calvados!
