Friday 3rd June and a group of us departed Weymouth (after a 4 hour wait) via Condor Ferries for the
2011 Credit Suisse Jersey International Motoring Festival
We stayed at
Ocean Walk Guest House
We were made to feel very welcome by the
manager Maz and staff who looked after us as though we were good friends which
can not be said for the organisers of the show who placed us in a field away
from the main event field and showed no real interest in us.
Hopefully, if we should return at some future date, we will be welcomed into the main events field and involved in the activities of the 'Show'
A word of warning if travelling by Condor
ferries, do not believe the departure times they give you, we had to wait over
4hrs on the outward journey and we were 2hrs late on the return due to an engine
out of commission.
Talking to the Jersey residents this has been the norm for some time, so always check the sailing time on the day of departure.
