Another factet I have just remembered is (in trying to assure you that it's not that far really) is this.
One morning my hotel breakfast waitress said "The girls are back".
Pardon?
"Yes, one the girls pilot gig teams set out after closing time last night to row over to Sennen Cove on the mainland. They have just come back".

Blimey, AY, best not give the local lasses an argument then!

Hi Brian,

I know from personal experience what the Cornish gilrs are like I lost my Heart to one
I will see you in Plymouth in May, room is now booked.
This sounds like a good trip to try. I take it that you intend to launch from Plymouth Area?

Regards

We will probably do what we did last year. That is we had a sort of rolling convoy.
I started from Torquay, Andy Mickelwrights started from Brixham we met up with others at Plymouth, Falmouth, Lizard and the Wolf Rock lighthouse.
We then went over to the islands as a group arriving mid-afternoon.
Worked like a dream last year because everybody arrived at their RV point exactly on time. Good fun getting that right!
So you can pick your own launch site as long as you coordinate with the group and stick to the schedule..

Being a Local can you recommend to me some good restaurants in the Falmouth Area please.
Jason, you really need to ask Toby Budd who is a regular on the forum. He runs/ran Ocean Aqua Cab in the area and knows it like the back of his hand.

However, fom personal experience I can recommend two...

The Sticky Prawn in Flushing - 01326 270852 and..

The Victory Inn in St Mawes - 01326 270324.

Both excellent sea-food places to eat.

Cheers

Hi Mark

Ok thats sounds like a good idea to me. So your going to do the whole trip in one hit is that right. I will have a word with my crew mate and see what he says.

Julian

I anticipate one of our famous “rolling starts” to this years outing to the Scillies. I believe Mark and Julian will be coming the furthest, down from Lymington. We will collect various others on our way, and proceed via the Lizard, Wolf Rock Lighthouse and, eventually St. Mary’s Sound, to the south of the main island, and then into Hugh Town. We will probably arrive mid-late afternoon. I suggest the rest of the day is spent booking in, sorting out and paying for moorings (no water taxi) and completing any refuelling arrangements.
On Sunday morning we will go clockwise round St. Mary’s, down to Gugh, up the Gugh/St Agnes Sound for a “look-see” then continuing clockwise round St. Agnes and into The Turks Head for lunch. Then off to Annett (puffin island), Bishops Rock lighthouse and weather permitting the “Atlantic” sea run up to The Maiden Bower, Round Island light and carefully down to the hotel on St. Martins for tiffin. A careful run back down between St. Martins and Tresco, should bring us intact back to Hugh Town for din-dins.
Monday, off up to the Eastern Isles and the Hanjague Rock for some seal spotting and finally heading east back towards the Runnel Stone at Lands End and Blighty.
I will prepare a spreadsheet routing but such is the nature of the islands it is best to normally follow in close line-astern in most places.

IT IS VITAL YOU MAKE ACC. BOOKINGS ASAP

I have “promises” from the following:

Me
Mike Garside
Julian
Mark Wildey
Mike Carson
Martin Stacey
Kevin (Ageing youth)
Jools
Graeme Cooper

Feedback please chaps!
