HISS in September, anyone with ferry space or looking to go

Post by peterpan241 » Sun Apr 15, 2018 2:48 pm

I'm looking at doing the HISS September 17-21, I've left it a little late to get the most appropriate ferry into Spain.
I have a few options:-

Find someone with a ferry crossing who has space / having to cancel

Go St.Malo and drive down (would need to catch Thursday's night ferry

Go Plymouth - Santander on Sunday 16th & miss a day

My idea after the HISS event is over is to follow the Touratech Portugal Country Tracks North to South, returning on Monday 1st October Santander to Portsmouth.

Any thoughts / cancelations / offers (keep it clean)
