Return to the Scilly Isles (July)

How many people are interested in a return trip to the Isles of Scilly.

I am thinking the same format as last time but with everybody launching from Penzance (to save some $$$ on fuel)

Provisionally good dates for me are the weekend of 1st/2nd July - long range forecast is looking good - not the scorcher we had last time but 17 deg and light winds - especially for the return trip. Of course this long range forecast is notoriously unreliable so I will keep my eye on it.

A show of hands would be good - and once I get an idea of number of boats I will make enquiries about moorings and camping.

Just realised my suggested dates clash with the RIBnet cruise in north wales.

Oh well - sorry to anyone who would like to have gone to both - but you cant argue with the weather - you have to grab it when you can...

Hi Roy,We,ve really been looking forward to a return trip,
unfortunatly the kids have the Cornish Surf Life Saving championships at Harlyn bay on the Sunday 2nd so will have to miss this one.
Look forward to any other dates or daytrips.
Ps,I still might be able to arrange overnight parking(RE:Last trip posts)2 miles PZ
if you dont or cant get into heliport.
Thanks for the invite

bloody forecast is shite for the weekend of 1st/2nd now...

Force 4/5 northerlies - cloudy - 15-16 deg C

I think we will have to wait untill the weekend before we will have any real clue as to what it will really be like.



What sort of conditions are people looking for / prepared to go in ?

For me due to the crew i will be taking

Force 3 or less - Warm (16 deg C +) - Dry

Ohhh, you know me Roy. Anything less than sub-tropical and I'm back in the barn. Whatever, Sticky couldn't make that one anyway. We will return.
