After talking to Matt about this trip I am of the mind that a w/e would not be enough time to really enjoy the trip from Fowey as well as have enough time to enjoy the Scillies seeing as you are looking at close to 89NM each way if you take the scenic route following the coast.
I would like to suggest an alternative venue of Rock in Cornwall to depart from which is about 67NM with a stop off at St Ives about 30 miles into the trip.
I know of a campsite there where the trailers could be stored and I am pretty sure the beachmaster at Rock could give us morrings for an hour whilst we got ourselves sorted trailers dropped off etc.
A starting point for an itinerary could be as follows..
12-00 head out of Rock
14-00 stop off at St Ives for Lunch
17-00 arrive at St Martins Campsite
Spent exploring !
10-00 set off for home run
1-30 Fish & Chips at Padstow
3-00 Load up and head home sunburnt & happy
I have deliberately kept it vague as lets face it if people are driving down on Friday the timings may drift a bit.
The St Martins Campsite have a chalet which may be available for those of you who can't face a night under Nylon. http://mysite.wanadoo-members.co.uk/...ite/index.html
Tides are looking good as we would be right on Neaps and high tide would be 2-00pm so ideal for St Ives and also good for the Scillies as we would be arriving at about mid tide.
I would plan to go down on the Thursday afternoon to enjoy a couple of beers and not have to face a drive down early on the Friday although I imagine for most it would be Friday?
Matt and I will be there, who else is going to make it a date?
I would think any takers will need to book space at the campsite on St Martins to be safe and also moorings which I am finding out more details on.
