Needless to recall
that at Aurigny / Alderney the school
gate bear the "ecole primaire" sign above the way, and that many local names are norman.
is there with all its background and nationality mix that happend all along the centuries...
"Honni soit qui mal y pense..." shows that the 2 countries have a strong common history
, rich and full of lessons...it is always a pleasure to crosse the channel and sail in UK.
For the Channel, and FYI, 25% of the world navigation
trafic is going in everyday and up to 600 ship's movement are recorded daily at Pas de Calais (Dover strait) area !
No wonder why ships are so numerous!
On my opinion, the fishermen are the most dangerous as their behavior is dificult to asssess and evaluate...I always have a watch, day and night while sailing in this area.
