Cruising by Channel Islands
Sailing by the Channel Islands offers plenty to see; the coastlines combine sheer cliffs with sandy beaches and dunes. The shores of the two largest islands – Jersey and Guernsey – are dotted with castles, forts, Martello towers, artillery batteries and more, dating from events such as the English Civil War and the Napoleonic Wars.[ReadMoreMob]
In contrast, the small island of Brecqhou, lying just off the west coast of Sark, is known for just one main landmark – Fort Brecqhou. The castle is said to be largest home built in Britain in the last 200 years and is owned by the billionaire Barclay family, the proprietors of Telegraph Media Group Limited and The Ritz Hotel, London, among other things.
