Thames to Camel - June 2015

Am plotting taking RIB (with 3 or 4 up) from Chiswick to Padstow in late June 2015 (Fri 26 - Sun 28 looks like a good window). Legs likely to be Thames-Ramsgate-Brighton-Weymouth-Plymouth-Scillies-Padstow.
I have done most of these legs before and have often felt to do it in company would add both merriment and safety.
Any takers to join a leg or more?

Hi, if I am about that weekend I will join you from Plymouth to The isles of Scilly. What is the breakdown of the legs as there are no commas.

Window for what? Your hols??

June is a good month for fair conditions, but bear in mind that all good along the South coast of England could turn to 'oh shit' when you round Lands End to head up the North coast of Cornwall, or vice versa.

Because we're pointy and stick out into the Atlantic, we often have very different sea states on either coast. You may be lucky.

Windows are for reasonably favorable tides around the pointy bits and opening times!

Have been caught by wind/weather shift before - not a complete novice...

Each leg c.90-110nm,
Likely itinerary:
Day1 -
Chiswick - Ramsgate for lunch and refuel
Ramsgate - Brighton for overnight
Day 2 -
Brighton - Weymouth for lunch and refuel
Weymouth - Plymouth for overnight
Day 3 -
Plymouth - Scillies for lunch and refuel
Scillies - Padstow.

Hope that helps.

Hi - see reply to previous post for itinerary - subject to weather of course!
