The Isles of Scilly 2013

Anyone fancy doing this early next year? It was a hot topic last weekend and some were up for boating to Plymouth to meet people with trailers on a Thursday and staying over for one night before everyone departs from Plymouth to The Isles of Scilly.

The Trip will involve beer, dolphins, camping and may be some 'wavejumping n shit'

Who's in?

If there are no clashes with work commitments, I am interested. Which of the Islands are you thinking of visiting?

If we went from Plymouth it would be around 90 NM each way, but if we hugged the coastline it would be longer.

A bit more than that, It's approx 60Nm from here, which admittedly, does involve a degree of rock dodging.

Measuring on Google Earth it's 93 nm taking the shortest route, but I know that it doesn't always work out that way.

Completely open to suggestions regarding launching location for the trailered ribs

By road, but pretty direct-

Plym to Fal- 65m
Fal to Lands End- 37m
Scillies are approx 28m offshore. Land's End - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Lizard has to be avoided.
