Scilly Isles Cruise June 7/8/9 2003

Is it too early to mention this cruise?

On behalf of BIBOA, I have been asked to organise this years outing to the Scilly Isles.
Last years cruise, memorable for it’s “interesting” seas was too short at two days in total.
By the time we reached Hugh Town on St. Mary’s, it was already late afternoon, and as we then had to leave the next morning sharp at 9 am, there really was no time to explore these attractive islands.

So this year we are looking at a three day event, from Saturday the 7th June through to Monday the 9th (it’s NOT a Bank Holiday weekend).

I am looking for expressions of interest at this stage and also any “requests” that you might have so that I can put together a trip of interest to as many as possible.

There is a long, previous thread on the Scillies from 2002 on this Forum for those who want a bit more background and some more facts and opinions. Essentially, it is an excellent opportunity for those who wish to make their first “offshore” cruise, but in safe company!

Can't come Brian but we had a fortnight their last year on our first "serious" solo trip. It's a Ribster's paradise!!
If anybody would like to borrow them, I have a full set of Admiralty charts.......as long as I get them back!!

Scilly Isles Cruise

Hi Brian,

Based on your knowledge of previous trips would My Humber 5.3m be up for it. I would definately like to try a long distance cruise just for the experience.

regards

Hi Mike,

Unfortunately I am unable to make those dates, however I will say that I really enjoyed last years cruise. The Scilly Isles are a wonderful place to visit.

I intend to revisit there again some time and will plan to stay for more time. For information the Garrison Campsite is also top class.

I will be back on the Helford River for my annual two week holiday at the begining of July.
Being a Local can you recommend to me some good restaurants in the Falmouth Area please.

Thanks and have a good trip.

P.S. I have started to put my website together, I have added the scans of the pictures you sent me. Please browse at your leisure!!

Right. So we have:
Myself and Cyanide
Mark Wildey
Martin Stacey
Mike Carson
Mike and Di Garside
Ageing Youth-Yes, your boat is more than adequate, and it really isn't that far offshore. It just feels like it the first time you go there! To give you a clue, on a reasonable day, you can see the cliffs at Lands End from the Scillies.
Any more for any more. And then I will start to get down to an itinerary.


...........and maybe Jools!
