This cruise sounds very interesting but due to uncertain weather conditions rather risky to undertake. On top of which one would have to tow a fair distance and not everybody can tow.

Some 10 years ago I participated in a cruise to St. Malo via Alderney for refuelling. Overnight stay in St. Malo good food and vine and the next day an easy cruise to Iles Chausey and from there to St. Helier Jersey again for a good meal , beer and overnight stay. The following day home via Alderney.

The cruise was organised by Rib International and to my knowledge has never been repeated.

Perhaps more would favour St. Malo above the Isles of Scilly. Just a thought but worth considering.
