Hayle to Padstow is actually a fair old schlep with the kind of swell that we get on the North Coast.

Not far really - getting down from Milford to Padstow (don't forget the other 100miles or so above Milford to North Wales!!) is approx 70nm into the swell - Hayle to Padstow is with the swell

I was wondering about trying to visit Lundy sometime this year if the summer ever arrives. Looking at the charts for the week ahead, the lows are still dwindling around, so it doesn't look like the swell is going to drop much unfortunately

If you can get it round more to the quarter, you can save some fuel and do some surfing on the way there

We were doing around 18knots at 1500revs on Saturday for about 10 seconds, didn't quite manage to hold it though which was annoying.

I shall try and make an effort to get out of Pembrokeshire this summer, whether it be by trailer or water.

don't judge all us south west ribsters by that pussy alice - some of us are prepared to go out in conditions below 20 deg c and with a greater than 5 knot wind and as for the swell - BRING IT ON

I categorically refute that last comment. It's well known in these parts that I'll venture forth in all conditions, as long as it's July or August and not so breezy as to make it tricky lighting my BBQ. And, Mr Cruse, kindly leave my pussy out of it!

Its approx 30 nm from here, the "Ground" swell (the big stuff) we get is any thing from SW to N + any wind swell on top so it can get v nasty out there.
