Scilly's September 09

Hi, the mussus and I are planning a little jolly to the scilly's on or about the 13th or 14th September.
We are planning to launch at Penzance.
Does anyone have any recommendations/hints/tips on this excursion?

Thanks in advance.

Lee

Yes you want nice weather and plenty of fuel

Parking at PZ is in a public carpark so your car etc is left out in the open

Do a search on here there's loads of information someone posted yesterday about a trip

From PZ you'll only get 2hrs either side of high tide to launch. You'll also need a bucket full of coins to park the car and trailer for two days.

As mentioned yesterday, we tend to set off from Falmouth now. Money wise, there's not much in it as the extra fuel is offset by 45 parking at PZ. Mylor/ Falmouth is a far better facility with secure parking. The run from Fal to PZ is quite special also.

That's quite a haul you're taking on, Darlington to Cornwall.

I am used to it, I lived in Plymouth for a few years, and have worked away from home on and off since I was 16.
In fact I live out of the back of my car; I am off to Arbroath for a weekends diving, (weather permitting)!!
