Scilly Isles.

I am planning a trip to the Scillys end of July, taking in the weekend 27th July. Does anyone have any advice (stupid question!) on:

Where's good to stay? Close to the boat?

Where's good to 'park' the boat up?

Wheres good to eat (as it's my birthday!)?

This is an open trip so anyone want to come and play is quite welcome, we so far have drunken sign up's of 2 yachts and 3 ribs!"!

Read you all soon.


Russell

I beleive there is a ferry from Penzance - suggest you either put your boat on it or follow very close.

Accommodation can be a bitch, espeicially if the7y know you are coming by boat - try John Harvey from BIBOA he has a lot of good gen.

Better start saving for the fuel too if you want to fill up on St Marys

- oh yes count me in and all!!

See you there Brian?

Whats all this about following the ferry?????
Out of Plymouth, round Rame Head and go across to the Lizard. Then Wolf Rock Lighthouse, then St. Mary's (South channel entrance)-couldn't be easier. About 95-100Nm, call it 4 hours. Piece of duff.
Lets liase nearer the time and go en-convoy.

Hi Brian

Fine for a fancy Scorpian driver. Russes boat would be lucky to get post Falmouth - they want it for the new maritime museum you know!! - just kidding, we are planning to go from Pymouth.

Looks like it will be the weekend of 27th July

Hope to get to the SW BIBOA meet this year - any details or ideas?

See you soon no doubt

Vern

Since when did the BIBOA SW Cruise change dates - the web site still gives 15 & 16 June as the SW cruise.

Do you realise the 18 / 19 May is the Ribex Weekend?

BIBOA SW Cruise

Graeme,

The latest Cruising Calender received in the post this am gives the SW Cruise as May 18/19. Looks like they will miss all the fun of RIBEX and a burst round the Island

Hi Peter

Guess that is so.

Does it give any reasons for the change - or is it a secret?

Nothing that I could see from a quick look - must be secret All I could see from the minutes of the Commitee Meeting held on 22/01/02 was that the web site needs updating!!!!!!!!

In the latest Riblines there is a good write-up of the SOC weekend in which you get a mention and a TWO PAGE spread by that bloke Hart on SIBs
