Alderney to Guernsey

We left Alderney in a stiff NW breeze once again it felt like our fate was in the hands off the gods
The Swinge, said the locals is best taken at slack tide when the overfalls show a little mercy! 
The remains of the gale had left a short sharp swell compressed by the currents surging past the jagged coast 

Cine Mara soon took the lead and setting our course Step Back In Time and Betty 2 set the helm for Guernsey a patch of land on the horizon 

4 hours later we entered the smooth waters of the little Russel and St Peter Port with its plan lined marina, it's cafes and busy traffic.

We had a quiet night woken early by the sounds of ships engines and dockside cranes
