Dartmouth > Isles of Scilly 2012

I know how these long distance trip planning posts tend to end up however as I sit here with freezing wind and sleet whipping up around the new gaff I am dreaming of some nice trips next year...

So..... any takers for a ribnet trip over to the Scilly Isles next year? I've been meaning to go for the last 3 years so am determined to do the run next year.

Thinking of May / June time...

So far Maximus and Avocet are on board and hopefully team cornwall might be up for it as well !

Hi Whisper, we are looking at about 120nm each way, personally I would want to be in at least a 6 meter. All comes down to the conditions on the day of course but I have yet to go on a long trip where it remained calm the whole way there and back !.

I am sure you could jump on board a larger boat as crew if you wanted to

If the timing is right I'd be up for this - it's certainly on my to do list!

If you wish I can do a very favourable rate on launch/recovery and trailer/car storage 4 minutes from the slipway and the Council will have built the new 8mtr wide slipway by then!

If I can work around the dates I would be up for this but would more likely start in Salcombe, it is a trip I would love to do.

PS I would be bringing something bigger than the SR4
