Scilles to Falmouth

Leaving Monday lunch

Two Osprey's so far anyone else welcome

P.S not really the sort of trip you can do in a Ribeye or Sunstreaker

Please bring beer and petrol as we're running low on both

Jim

thanks to the Fraggle Rock for the interweb

saw you guys around a bit....once quite close

i was the kiter that went past you in tresco channel....think i caused a bit of panic in the second rib

was on a black and grey kite with a green/grey board.

my rib was anchored up in the south corner of appletree. (blue ribcraft df250)

must have been a great trip home

Not as much as the depth alarm that's the only time I've been there without ploughing the sand

We past an orange and black rib maybe a Searider 5.4 with Aframe midway back anyone local ?

you had loads of water up the channel when i passed you..

the rib you passed was quite probably "butcher boy" who decided to go to falmouth for a trip in his newly acquired humber.
she's black tubed orange hull with single a frame from what i remember.

Our kids were well impressed with your efforts on a board.
Your description of Butcher Boy sounds about right. We had it following, he had it on the nose. When we passed they were climbing faces like the sibs on Seaside Rescue. 55Nm of that deserves an award. I tried to raise them on Ch16, but didn't get a reply. I think they may have had their hands a little too full for idle chit chat.

Yeah, quite a bit. On the way out we were had Westerlys which gave us a head on sea which was hard work, falling down the back of steep faces mixed up with the odd one on the quarter which skewed us on landing. Coming back it was possibly bigger, but following. We were surfing. We had to gun the boats at 30knts to get out of the troughs and up over the swell which was largish.
Joe shot some Dog cam footage which i'll try to edit and post.
