My first St Nicks was back in 1985. I went with my then partner Audrey on my MZ250ETZ and Tony and Heather Young on, if I remember rightly, a BMW R100RT.
We went for many years and stayed at the Polaris Hotel. Then with wife Claire we went until it closed we dropped weekends to become day-trippers.
The last few years have been less good, breakdowns, sickness and bad weather have all stopped me from going.
I booked on Seafrance for £12.50 return and will go over and see how it is.
