I have done Plymouth - Isle of Scilly and back and Plymouth - Jersey and back in a day before, both round trips of nearly 200 miles. Good fun, but boy did I ache afterwards!

I have not been on the water for three years due to planning our next big trip. All things being well it willall be made public very soon. it has been a hard slog but it will be worth it in the end.
For the record and to put things on an even keel, in 1995 we did anon stop crossing from Bilboa to Weymouth in our 7.4 Ribtec. I think it was about 800 miles. Alan P
