With the schools returned and the sun not yet set, late summer is a great time to visit the Channel Islands. Jersey and Guernsey late summer events and festivals include Walking Weeks on both Jersey and Guernsey, Air Displays on both islands, and the Jersey Regatta and Guernsey Powerboat Championships. Whereas Guernsey starts with its ever popular promotion of traditional island food and ends September with a floral celebration, Jersey entertains with its cultural Branchage Festival, a melding pot of up and coming film, music and production talent. It’s a great time to visit, the problem is, which island?
