From Cherbourg to fastnet

Hello,

We project a little cruise from Cherbourg to Fastnet.

We need to locate easy-to-use refuelling points (dockside petrol pumps, no diesel (225 Suzuki engine ))along this way.

The steps are: plymouth, Scilly islands, Cork and Fastnet Rock.

We have no information for Cork Harbour, and from this Harbour to Fastnet.

If somebody could give me local informations that'd be sweet .

Thank you very much for your help.

Antoine

Petrol in Cork

Crosshaven boatyard is just inside cork harbour. They had a fuel bunker in times past. Not sure about now.


See website http://www.crosshavenboatyard.com/index.html

Check out also the Royal Cork Yacht club. @Usually very welcoming people.

Joe McCollam in Excallibar is a super guy and he will be able to point you in the right direction.

Royal Cork YC has petrol but only for members and only on a high tide. At the other end of Cork harbour, Aghada Pier has a petrol station on the roadside,
51 50.660N 008 12.545W. This is really a half tide pier. No other petrol is available close to the harbour.

Kinsale has no Petrol either, but a Petrol station is about 200 m down the road from the YC Marina

any other help let me know
