you could count me in.......but i'm already here
If you need any info regarding the Scillies ask:
Note: The world pilot gig champs this year run from Friday 29th April to Monday 2 May. Racing is friday night all day sat+sun with drinking on Monday.
Accomodation wise the week leading upto it is busy: The weekend is stuffed and the week after is busy Lots of families from the visiting crews use it as a week's hol.
Maybe avoid that weekend.
August is high season both on the islands and on the water.
June not too busy Plenty of moorings then
Weather wise well anything is possible.
Petrol here is bl**dy expensive we're talking 1.20 something per LITRE.
I'll keep an eye for you all and say hello: around at work in a red bay 8.4 (postboat) and at play in a banana yellow Delta.

I'd be keen to do this one as well, in my Pacific. As already suggested though, I'd try and avoid the Gig Championships.

I propose a nice early season cruise 16/17/18 April.

I further propose following Brian's previous cruise which i was on last year and was fantastic. I have all the waypoints and a track from last year.

A rolling start, with, for a start, Top Banana coming from Plymouth, again an idea stolen from Brian.

The monday is NOT a bank holiday - but i would think that we are better off avoiding a bank holiday on a small tourist island!

Would have to miss the April one as that is not in any holiday time.

Lets get the ball rolling......lol

It's good to see lots of enthusiam for a Scillies cruise this year.

At this point, I must ask if anybody with experience in organising such an event would like to take the next steps in the planning stage.......?
(I think Brian indicated that he would be happy to organise this cruise???)

I think it would be more sensible for somebody who has produced a cruise or taken part in one to be able to use their experience in planning a top event.

I know i started this thread originally, but with this potentially being my first RIB cruise, it would be a bit irresponsible for me to take the reigns on this one

RIBase
I have already offered to Bryster to help to organise (or actually do the whole organisational bit) if requested.

Apart from that request, I would need two further things though.
One is a set of dates (suggest a 3-dayer, one to get there, one to cruise around, and one to get back).
And the other is a nominated leader.

If you give me those things, I will organise a cruise for you.

Hello all, I would love to come along on this trip. Will need a bit of time to organise leave from work. June or July may be suitable for me and a 3 day event sound great.

Only had my RIB for 5 months so new to this but will look forward to this event.

I may be able to get a couple of others interested.

I suggest we leave from Penzance but will have to catch the tide right. I would appreciate any advise. What equipment I should carry and how much fuel as I may have to purchase a few bits.

Cheers
Steve
