Russell Greenstock, Chairman of the Alderney branch of the JST said “The Routes des Moules offers visiting yachtsmen the challenge of crossing the Channel, together with the charm and the peace of island life. This is one of many events that we hold to help raise funds and the profile of the JST, and I guarantee it will be an action packed weekend with plenty of fun for all! “
