Great, how about pencilling in a late July trip, w/end of 25th July, and firm up a little later on.

sounds like you guys have done it before, so I'd welcome your suggestions on where to launch etc.

I expect I'll be making a weekend if it.

Cheers
Mark

The easiest option is to launch from Appledore, nice launch ramp with good parking for car and trailer. It's about 19nm from Appledore to Lundy.

Once at Lundy you can drop people off on the ferry pontoon then moor onto one of the buoys off the beach and swim in. There's a campsite by the pub.

I have been warned a good anchor is required and tender helpful

End of July would probably suit me...we'd most likely launch from Watchet and do an overnighter.
At that time of year camping is no problem
Aroun 60nm miles each way makes for a nice run and lots of sights...and potential wildlife.

Great - I've cleared the weekend 25/26th July. Probably best if I launch at Appledore as per Chris, as I'd struggle to fuel that distance of 120nm.

Up for camping, will make a good trip.

Mark
