Tied up on waiting pontoon in St. Peter Port at 0700.  Passage plan indicated arrival in daylight but in the event we arrived off Guernsey in the early hours having sailed at 7.5-8.5 knots all the way.  First half of trip was great with some fantastic stars in the early part of the night.  In the afternoon we were buzzed by two French jets who flew past below mast hight, one in front, one astern.  The second half of the trip was tough as the sky clouded over and the wind strengthened.  By the time we made the final approach to Guernsey we were down to double-reefed main only.
