I'm interested in sailing between Brittany and the UK this summer (2015 - and either way or both) with others. Is anyone else? i don't own a yacht at present (apart from my 16ft Catamaran) but am considering buying one. My sailing experience includes the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race and I have 'Competent Crew' certification. If the experience turns out well i may be interested in either buying a modest size yacht of my own or buying into a group owned yacht. Or joining a social group that likes to sail between Brittany and the UK parfois. Perhaps others looking to participate in such a venture / adventure / social event or anyone needing crew might care to contact me. My nearest port is Morlaix and my house is in Huelgoat.
Hi all,I've been watching The English Premier League on Canal+ for over 5 years now but they have lost the rights and unfortunately I have to wait until 31Decmebr before I can cancel my " abbonament"!!The maddening thing is that I can't find out who is going to be screening the games. A company caled SFR have bought the rights but they have not yet been ablet to negoitiate with any of the TV channels.Some of my French friends have said that SFR are planning to have internet based only access and stream the games via internet for a yearly sign up of 28 Euros per month, but I am sure that the Prem League would not allow that because part of the negotiation process when tendering for the rights is about reaching a wide audience. It seems to me that SFR have dived in paying way over the odds expecting Canal+, Bein Sports etc to come begging and pay whatever SFR ask. I also hear that Canal+ and SFR are in court at the moment over the rights.I don't want to sign up to sky or BT sports because I enjoy the games better with the French commentary and french pundits.My question is this, does anyone out there know anymore than I do about how the games will be transmitted and if so please, please can you let me know as we are now less than a month away to the start?Thanks to all.

Hi, a quick question that I cannot find an answer to, I have checked.Can I shoot guns at targets on my own land? I am a member of a club and have asked several members and got as many different answers. I have catagory D, air guns and black powder, catagory c .22lr rifle and catagory b handguns.In the UK catagory D (air guns) can be shot in even a small garden as long as basic safety precautions are taken, I can shoot clay pigeons with my shotgun in my field with the same proviso, I need FEO clearance to use a smallbore rifle on uncleared land unless I have an "open" licence and catagory B does not exist in the UK.I am looking at a house with six acres and would like to set up a safe area for target shooting for catagory D only, but cannot get a definitive answer on the rules.Does anyone know the answer?
