If a few smaller ribs did it then I would not feel out of my league. I know of people who have been to the Channel Islands in under 4M ribs but the weather plays a huge role when your in a small rib.

If you were in similar sized company with a decent weather window it would be doable. Personally, I wouldn't fancy it. It would be slow going. :-/

Go for the Scillies, they're practically a shore hop by comparison. ;-)

We did alderney in a 420 Pro with a 50... (from France ).

Longjohn was a 470 Capelli so not deep v high bow, much more like the pro. Think it has a 70 on the back?
