You could try the stowaway method.
I knew a girl from Penryn that attempted to 'stowaway' to Australia. The crew agreed to keep her hidden in return for 'favours'. Two years later the Skipper stumbled upon her and informed her that she was on the Torpoint Ferry.

I went to sleep on a friends boat once at Turnaware and woke up beside the KHF!
Folks from Loe Beach to seen to get drawn to it!
Seriously hope I make it back in time, will be gutted if I miss the race. I missed it in 1998 too, paddled out to my boat to discover some ******** ***** **** **** had stolen my engine!
Will you be launching from Mylor as usual Mollers? Lets pray for some good weather!
