I havent yet used a chart (I will) but I have done an approx mileage using that famous maritime chart (Mappoint

If Mappoint is correct (and knowing Microsoft products there is a chance its wrong) we have done similar length trips before (Shoreham to Weymouth - Return in one day) with a F4-5 Easterly, however as this is a holiday we would only attempt the Scillies in good conditions from Plymouth ie < F3 (heres hoping
