The meeting place will be at Medway Marina, Rochester. There is a secure car park in the services and it will cost £20 for the week to park there. Please pay the driver on arrival.
The plan is to meet here at 4.30 am and jump on the minibus which leaves at 5 am at the latest. You will then drive to Portsmouth and board your ferry which takes approximately 6hrs to arrive in Caen. Here you will meet your bailiff who will take you to the lake which will take about an hour.
The following Saturday you will leave the lake at around 2pm and arrive back in England at around 9.30pm
