This holiday was planned as a two centre tour based for four nights in the Loire area and four nights in the Champagne area at the L'Assiette Champenoise in Reims. The crossing was from Portsmouth and dinner was taken at the Portsmouth Yacht Club prior to boarding the overnight ferry. The intention was to explore the Chateaux of the Loire and then spend some time in Reims, plus visit some of the champagne Houses and vineyards. Seven Alvis cars and sixteen people participated. Three cars were pre-war and five were soft tops.
