Fancy blasting across the channel on the J/45 ‘Stickleback’ to the beautiful French harbour of Honfleur? This is going to be a very special trip with a likely mileage in excess of 250 nautical miles.
This stunning 2022 J-45 is quite some boat, and she is available through Pure Latitude for this trip as she is owned by an ex-club member. She’s a superlative performer that is everything a cruiser/racer should be; easily handled, impeccably behaved, beautifully comfortable down below and, perhaps most importantly of all, impressively quick. The price tag on a new J/45 comes in upwards of £700,000, so this is a very special opportunity to sail onboard this beautiful boat.
And the destination won’t disappoint either! Nestling in the Normandy estuary where the Seine meets the English channel, harbours don’t come any prettier than Honfleur. Colourful half-timbered houses jostle for position on the quay, along with art galleries and restaurants serving delicious seafood. It’s a gem to visit and always extra fun on a boat. If time and weather permit, the itinerary may also include a stop in Fecamp.
