I am also planning to do this trip but from Falmouth via Salcome. See above link.

I am aslo toying with the idea of making the base "Sark" and camping for the week.

There are loads of sheltered bays for anchorage and the island is only 1 mile accross so wherever the campsite is its not going to be far from the boats.

Roy - Happy to help with the Salcombe bit if I can do anything?

The gap between the main island of Sark and the smaller island top left of the photo was part of the course in May for the offshore race - went through there at about 70mph - it looked a bit narrower at that speed - also the tide going through there produces some interesting currents - it felt like the boat was moving around underneath you as you went through there, very un-nerving the first time!

Thanks Cookee - Refulling may be a requirement for some - allthough there is talk now of doing it in a straight line rather than the dog leg.

by the way - long time no see...

seems like ages since you came down to our south west ribsters meet up at the mexican - and that fantastic day out on banana shark.

im looking foreward to RIBEX this year - i assume you'l be there again
