Sounds like a good run. About 4 hours in reasonable weather?
Chart looks a bit swirley from Jura up.
Not been that far north - yet.
In fact not been anywhere last 8 weeks apart from looking at orrible weather forcasts.

If your looking for experienced crew why don't you give Willk a call he is Ribless, and he know Redbay's like the back of his hand!!Better still he knows the cruising ground.

That's a very kind (and possibly rash ) offer

In answer to your earlier question, yes, about four hours in average conditions. I'm sure wind against tide could make some of it interesting, but the last leg can be done via the inside channel and it's very sheltered.
