Thats what water proofs were invented for

If a soaking is likely I will put my wetsuit on under the rest of my gear (still dont own a drysuit)

Bob - what were the cheap suits you bought from tragos like and how much were they...

They are 'Fladen rescue System Two Piece Floatation suits' and we find them really warm (don't intend to test their floatation ability)
They were about £56.00

Also have you all checked ur insurance to ensure it covers you for an off-shore passage?

Read an article in RIB International where a lot of standard insurance for motor boats etc. covers for coastal water only!

Has anyone got any way points for PZ to St. Mary’s already before I work em out.

err no - was kinda going to move the cursor round a bit on the GPS and mark some way points where it looked nice. The boat is under cover at the moment - but on Thursday it will be out for its engine service - so I will look at the chart plotter then.

I would like to go out via seven stones and back via wolf rock just for the photo opportunity.

I suggest we have the scenic route and a direct route to hand and decide on the day depending on sea state.
