Have you any idea what the various "rolling start" times will be yet ?

Just so I can make my own plans for setting off from Poole.

Regards

Mark

Mark and Julian

Very roughly the distances involved are:
Needles to Start Point/Prawle Point-84
Start Point to Lizard-60
Lizard to Wolf Rock-23
Wolf Rock to Hugh Town-20

Because we will pick up more, and slower boats, the last two legs are unlikely to average 20knots. Therefore 2 hours required.

Start Point to Lizard will take me 2.5 hours.

I guess you will do Leg 1 in under 3 hours.

So if we want to arrive at say 15.00 hours, you would start from Needles at (1500-(2+2.5+3)) = 07.30

Hi Brian

As long as the weather is good i think that is a reasonable time to set off. Lets hope for sunshine and flat seas to get us there quicker. Looking forward to it.

Kevin

Are you going on this trip ? If you intend to launch at Plymouth I could trail my boat down and leave from there with you ?


I'm crewless at the moment if anybody wants to join me on 'BOB' they are most welcome.

Strewth 'Star Castle Hotel' quoted me 188 quid a night

Thankfully found a guest house that was much more reasonable

Stayed at the Mincarlo last year. Accomodation not brilliant but far better than some of the broom cupboards I have stayed in. Breakfast OK and Bryony Duncan, the Manager, 01720 422513, was Totty.

About 5-7 minutes around the harbour, depending on how much Viagra you have had, and the room including breakfast 30 ?

decisions decisions decisions!

Where to launch from is the question ?

I don't want to slow the larger boats down on the early legs of this trip so from digging around Mylor in Cornwall looks like its got a nice wide slip, pontoon along side so I can tie the boat up whilst I park the car and trailer.


Anybody have any local knowledge of the area ?

Martin, I presume you are going to be coming down on the morning of the 6th?

It's neaps then and high water will be at 0900. I only mention this because I don't know what launching at Mylor will be like at neaps - will there be enough water? Probabaly worth calling Mylor Yacht Club (01326 374391) and finding out.

I will be leaving St Mawes (where there is a strong possibility that there would not be enough water to launch) that morning. If you like, we could RV off St Mawes Castle and head out to the Lizard together to RV with the convoy there.
