(visited by David Coombs)

27-Jun-2005 -- On the way from Scotland to Brussels I visited 3 points on the line 51N in order to be able to visit them more quickly if I had the chance two days later on a marathon CP bagging trip.

The first point was 51N 2E. This lies on the beach and is only exposed when the tide is out – probably from about half-tide down. I got there within one hour of high water and the point was 250 metres from the edge of the sea and the tide coming in fast. No chance this time. As an incomplete visit I have not put in a separate visit report.

The next point is near Rosselaere. There is a dispute between visitors about whether this point lies in a garden or in the field behind. I went only into the sugar beet field and did not reach the point. I estimated that it is maybe 7-10 metres inside the garden
