I've emailed the PZ harbour master asking his advice about launching and parking, but think that even if you need a visit into PZ to top up with fuel, it may be better to leave from Falmouth. (Looking at Google maps theres a Tesco fuel station a mile away from PZ harbour, a nice walk or a short taxi ride?)
If the harbour master in PZ replies, I let you know what he says..
Hi Mitch, if you decide to depart Fal, bearing off for PZ would be a waste of fuel and a total faff. If you wish to depart PZ, go for it.
We reckon Fal to Scillies to average 60Nm with a bit of tiddling about.
