The Isles of Scilly is a fantastic place to visit the people are very friendly.

I went to a wedding there back in April and was really blown away with the clear water and white sandy beaches. You will need a good GPS plotter as it has a few rocks and the odd ship wreck!!!

Fuel is expensive at 1.69 a litre but you are on holiday live a little.

Photos below are of my Ribcraft and the second one is the sea mist coming in.

I was planning to go at the end of this month but it's debatable if the boat's going to be back up and running by then. Maybe later in the season

Well Martini and Marky, depending on the Great British weather end of June or July would be a good time for us,although it certainly helps to be flexable! But It is definately worth the effort,and Hassle, When you do get there!! Thinking of long weekend camping.......Avocet??

Just got back from a week on Bryher (I didn't see this thread before I went). It was my 1st time on my RIB (5.3m Humber Destroyer with 115hp Yamaha) and I had a great time learning all about the way it handles. I've been to Bryher many times before and hired boats out there, but to have my own boat was a different experience altogether. For any bits and pieces/info about the local waters, pay a visit to Dan Bennett at Bennett's boatyard in Green Bay.
I'm back over there in August, although based on St Mary's.
Here's a pic of the boat anchored on Tresco

Looks amazing, Hard to believe that is part of the UK! I sailed out to the Scillies when I was only about 14 and have never been back. Was all set for gig championships this year and then I had to abandon it for my Godsons Christening.

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?
