Yeah, I'll do it! The only prob is the walk from Hugh Town to the Garrison camp site is all but vertical! As for December, the Scillies have the mildest climate in the UK. It'll be like Gran Canaria there at that time of year. As for distance Bob, that'll depend on whether you'll need to make a detour via Wolf Rock lighthouse to make an effluent collection!

It's 35m from PZ to St Marys Bob. You don't actually lose sight of land. You see the Scillies before you lose sight of Lands End. Guys I know regularly go straight out from Falmouth but that doubles the length of the trip, which is fine in the summer. I know a nutter of a vet whom launched his 5m Rib with a 90 Honda in the morning on his own from Mylor then rang his missus from the St Martins Hotel around lunchtime. He'd made no plans to go, it was the first she knew of it. He was back in Mylor by early eve! Likewise I know the guy that owns Riders Landrover. He took his 40ft Cranchi over got caught in an Easterly swell coming back and said "Never again". He is a pretty experienced boater.

What do we have in terms of paper or electronic charts? I've only ever gone in using paper charts, but that was on a 70ft ketch with a BT Global Challenge Skipper navigating. Shallow water shouldn't be an issue in the Ribs although seeing the bottom is a bit scarey at speed. At very low water it pays to stick to the channels. In Hugh Town we can probably tie up agains't the harbour wall at that time of year, which will be easier than moorings. I've done it with a sib and is was not a prob.

I have Garmin 178C with bluechart MEU463S - I also carry backup Garmin Foretrex 101 which will have all the necessary waypoints in before we leave.

Until someone invents a nautical version of one of these



I dont believe paper charts are viable on an open 6m RIB.

Quite fancy going out via the seven stones - and comming back via wolf rock.

Is there actually anything to see at the seven stones - ive seen it on many map but cant really find much about it - other than dive sites but only pictures ive seen are underwater.

Thats the spirit !!!

There are more RIBnutters in Cornwall than I thought I honestly thought no one would be up for this at this time of year - now we potentially have 3 boats.

Available / Preferential days would be useful from all parties. That way if the weather looks good for more than one day that week we can choose the day that suits most people.

I'm up for any day - I will need help launching if its wed/thu/fri - but other than that ill be going even if its just me.

Iím ok on any day apart from Xmass day and New years Eve/Day.
Chris Iíve got a Garmin GPSmap 168 Sounder with PZ to Scillies charts, but it needs and external GPS antenna (currently on my RIB) and a 12v supply.

If you havenít got a GSP antenna Ill bring my it anyway as a backup for Royís, it fits the same power cable.

Iím going to do a passage plan, which will be a good exercise for me as Iím 1/2 through my Yacht master theory, assuming you have a compass on your RIB

If you havenít got a GPS antenna, with Royís permission it would make sense to use the handheld on your boat so we can chart the passage and separate the GSPís in case of emergency!

Well if anything it will give you all something to laugh at as it blows over the side

Camping could be interesting count me in Brrrr, but a hotel room sounds even better 

I've got a Garmin 188/238, your map should be OK in it. I've even got a wireless on there so we can speak to each other.

Dont you have any charts?

The 168C has built in memory and the unlocks work for my GPS only, the charts are keyed to the serial number of the GPS.

Yeah, but they only work in the computer which is attached to my neck! The only thing I ever really use is the Trackplotter at night or the stars. Left at the Manacles and follow the Big Dipper. I did think that when I struggled to find Kynance Cove last year that I out to buy one, I'l get a Bluechart before we go and give the old sextant a service! You thought that I was joking when I said to follow the Scillonian. I'm from the Dell Trotter school of navigation.
