No land support.
Not necessary but certainly desirable.

First of all I would like to thank Brian for all his help and input which has been greatly appreciated,
We have now finished a few mods to the boat including fitting four shock migration seats,a flowscan fuel metering system and a new radar ,
We have set the date for the first good window after the last week in May,our route starts from Holyhead marina then to Tobermory, Ullapool, Stromness, Peterhead, Whitby, Ramsgate, Weymouth, Falmouth then the last leg back to Holyhead marina ,if anybody has local info of any hotels or guesthouses or any recommendations or information on any of the harbors it would be appreciated ,
Our chosen charity is Gafael Llaw which is a north wales charity which helps children with cancer and their family's ,
All the costs of the trip are being funded by the crew with all the fuel being provided by Ventilair uk ltd ,
We have started a face book page, Myles Aweigh Charity Challenge ,for any updates and photos for any interest parties wishing to follow and have started a Just giving page for anybody wishing to donate anything, any amount no matter the size would be greatly appreciated and all will go to the charity https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/myles-aweigh

Sounds a great trip and would enjoy doing similar one day at a reduced pace!
Having a owned a KAD44 cousin of KAD33 in a Humber 8.5 for several years I got quite good at changing belts and idler pulleys and have done so at sea too.
May I suggest new belts and idler pulley plus spares prior to leaving.it might be worth doing it yourself too to see how to do it .
If the compressor belt goes you are at displacement speed as it is impossible to get revs high enough to get the turbo working.
Good luck and keep us informed of progress we might join you along the south coast.
