I'm home at the end of June so could be keen for a trip then if anyone else is.
How does launching and parking work out in Penzance? I rarely make it further west than Falmouth!
How much fuel did you need to make the trip out Percy and where did you leave from?
Yes, I parked in the public carpark at Penzance which cost £66 for the car and trailer but be aware that you may need to pick your parking space carefully if you have a big car and trailer. My VW Golf and Roller coaster fitted ok. The slipway is near the sailing club and bus station and does have a bit of a dog leg in it. It is a good slip with a reasonable angle on it.
The cost of fuel for me was under £50 each way as its 43 miles from Penzance to St Marys harbour.
We hired Golf buggies on St Marys for the day which was good fun £40 carried 4 people.
If you do go make sure you post some pics for us all to see.
