Ramsgate > Calais > Ramsgate

Sat 24 - Sun 25 August 2013

This 2-day cross-channel voyage is the ideal weekend for those looking to rack up the miles in between RYA courses, but also makes for a fantastic weekend break.

Calais beach
Known to us Brits primarily as a Car Ferry port, the town of Calais plays host to a surprising selection of high-end restaurants and trendy cafes.  Boasting miles of sandy beaches has also allowed it to develop a reputation as a cool Summer hang out for Parisians and Eurofiles alike.

Crew are invited to join Torbellin on Friday evening (23 August) from 18:00.  A final look at the forecast will precede a decision being made on the planned itinerary.

Coffee and croissant
Saturday morning will begin with a safety briefing and a cooked breakfast before heading out to sea.  A good crossing on a clear day is approx. a 5hr trip.  Lunch is a light affair - tea and sandwiches - while on the go.  Into Calais marina - Paradise Basin - in time for plenty of exploring and choosing a favourite restaurant.  A sensibly early start on Sunday will kick off with coffee and croissants.  The voyage back will be a straightforward milebuilder, in time for a clear and clean of Torbellin before disembarking by late-afternoon.
