Kent @ Wipers 09

The trip is confirmed for 19th April and has been advertised on the SOC Discussion Boards as well as to the Centre.

We have 8 or 9 bikes going across on the 0800 Seafrance sailing to Calais, returning at 2245.

This gives us plenty of time to get to Ypres via the Trench of Death at Diksmuide, then a second stop at Canada Farm (where one of the guys on the trip has a relative to visit) and then on into Ypres to have lunch and look at the sights in town. (Click on map to see full size)

After lunch we begin the afternoon trip round the Salient. (Click on map to see full size). The circuit goes clockwise calling in at few sites and a few Museums. This should take us up to about 6pm or so. After dinner or a snack we can then go across to the Menin Gate for the 8pm Last Post Ceremony.

After the ceremony it is a more leisurely ride back to the ferry port to get home than our usual mad dash! As long as we take less than two hours we will be in plenty of time!
