'Carlotta' departed Yarmouth mid-July and cruised the Channel meeting fellow gaffers from the Solent and South West. They joined French gaffers along the Brittany coast on passage to Douarnenez for 25 July. This is what the French call 'La Boule de Neige'. The fleet returned from Douarnenez in time to join the OGA55 anniversary celebrations on the Isle of Wight in mid-August.
