Fowey, Cornwall - Friday 30 May to Sunday 1 June 2008

ok, want to get something organized for weekend commencing Friday 30th May 08, untill sunday pm.

to give you an idea...

Penmarlem Campsite is situated at Fowey,Cornwall, this will be the meet point,for those who would like to join up, the campsite is a minutes walk to the Slipway and jetty, it is really fantastic there as Nos will vouch for it, there is a pub located 5 mins away by boat and you can moor up outside, great fun navigating back after a few, (at 3 knots of course), Morning time, there is a great place for breccie, on the waters edge overlooking out towards the river,a raised grassy bit,,(will be taking barbecue stuff and fishing stuff as well ) and all that,

head out 9 ish quick look at Lantic Bay (5 mins away) and head to the Isles Of Scilly where we will find a night stop, either camp out or something else,

ive never done this trip before or been this far, But it is a trip that im going to do on those dates,

Im sure Nos is up for it, chris and Hightower, Would be great to have Biggles Ian Mconnell ,Neil Harvey, Come on codders, Roy Smith, Phil B,

a couple of fuel points on the way out if reqd,

This would be a cruise and not a race, this part of the coast is amazing and not to be missed,

any other info on the trip and or places to see en route, refueling stop offs, where to stay on the isles would be great, even pics to get the 2 stroke flowing would be great,,
i will be trailering the boat down, trailer security in Penmarlem is good, Cameras and coded access to get to the slip and trailer storage for 2 nights.

want it to be family Friendly jaunt as well, more the merrier!!

Roll up Roll up!!

Matt, will keep an eye out for this one nearer the time, sounds like a good one to be on, however bit more of a B & B, Hotel chap :-), dont think the old back can handle camping anymore.
