So it's basically jumping from headland to headland! But I think, Hugo wants us to do better than that. Has anyone found a more suitable waypoint list for our purposes?

Hope to see many of you in Ireland

Dunno about the Mizzen head "way" point - I know the area but I'd give it another bit West

Mizzen Head

Thanks to both of you (Daibheid + Ribliam) for sharing your local knowledge. Your remarks are duly noted. But how much more west is a bit west. Are we talking cables or miles here and what would be the dangers if passing closer to the headland?

Cetus. I think you should mark a few of those waypoints on a chart and decide for yourself. I've looked at the Tory co-ords and have to agree with the lads - I'd give it a wider berth...
