We can always make another call about Sunday departure on Sat - when things might be more certain

There is a wild card option if everybody is uncertain! It's only an idea I have thought of as I have been really keen to get on the water and have soon down time.
We could all meet at Falmouth on Fri explore the coast to Fowey and beyond. Camp at one of the coves. Sat more fun and a camp in the sheltered waters of the Helford on Sat night. Sunday take at leisure.
I Mollers will be cringing now at that thought but it's only an idea if in doubt.

Sorry to pee on your fire but the problem will be getting off of Bryher as high tide is 8 in the morning or 9 at night

Could be a pain all weekend

I've spent a day in the rain after a F8 overnight, waiting for the tide as the ribs rest in the mud

Sorry been down to Fowey a few times and explored both ways, I'm really not up for the tow down for that

Don't worry about Bryher you will have a tide window 3 hrs either side of high. Scillies is my preferred option so lets go and if we cut it short it's still going to be fun.

Drying out issues are due to anchoring, taking a mooring will sort that. The Radio Cornwall forecast this morning gave 2/3 SW with sun and cloud.
