Yeah, I'll do it! The only prob is the walk from Hugh Town to the Garrison camp site is all but vertical! As for December, the Scillies have the mildest climate in the UK. It'll be like Gran Canaria there at that time of year. As for distance Bob, that'll depend on whether you'll need to make a detour via Wolf Rock lighthouse to make an effluent collection!

It's 35m from PZ to St Marys Bob. You don't actually lose sight of land. You see the Scillies before you lose sight of Lands End. Guys I know regularly go straight out from Falmouth but that doubles the length of the trip, which is fine in the summer. I know a nutter of a vet whom launched his 5m Rib with a 90 Honda in the morning on his own from Mylor then rang his missus from the St Martins Hotel around lunchtime. He'd made no plans to go, it was the first she knew of it. He was back in Mylor by early eve! Likewise I know the guy that owns Riders Landrover. He took his 40ft Cranchi over got caught in an Easterly swell coming back and said "Never again". He is a pretty experienced boater.

What do we have in terms of paper or electronic charts? I've only ever gone in using paper charts, but that was on a 70ft ketch with a BT Global Challenge Skipper navigating. Shallow water shouldn't be an issue in the Ribs although seeing the bottom is a bit scarey at speed. At very low water it pays to stick to the channels. In Hugh Town we can probably tie up agains't the harbour wall at that time of year, which will be easier than moorings. I've done it with a sib and is was not a prob.

I have Garmin 178C with bluechart MEU463S - I also carry backup Garmin Foretrex 101 which will have all the necessary waypoints in before we leave.

Until someone invents a nautical version of one of these



I dont believe paper charts are viable on an open 6m RIB.
