Cheers Chris for the info - It would be good to have you along for the adventure. If you cant make it on this one I'm sure we will sort another trip out in the summer. - I'm still up for that trip to Lundy by the way - I now have the boat and fuel capacity to do it. Might need assistance with launching on the north cost though - I don't have a 4X4.

Just been PM'd by a RIBnet user who has warned me that I should be carefull posting waypoints - with out warning to re-check them (incase i have miss typed any of them etc...)

Good advice I think.

So here is my warning :-

ANYONE USING MY WAYPOINTS TO NAVIGATE IS BARKING MAD IN MY OPINION WHETHER I MISS-TYPED THEM OR NOT.

WORK OUT YOUR OWN !!!!!

Ok Ive added wolf rock as waypoint 20 and created a total of 6 routes 3 there and 3 back (yes i know you can reverse them on the unit)

Ideally I would like to go out via Seven Stones and Back Via Wolf Rock. I have also included the shortest straight line route in case we are running out of time.

Here's a Garmin Data File for anyone with MapSource - At least you should be able to check my waypoints to make sure we don't get shipwrecked anywhere.

ScilliesTrip.zip

All three routes touch the separation scheme to some extent and I've not been too bothered about making sure we are crossing it exactly at right angles. How fussy are they about this - how many degrees away from straight across is allowed when crossing a separation scheme - I'm assuming there is some leeway. If not I will have to add a couple more waypoints in and straighten us up due East/West as we cross it.

I would avoid travelling through Runnel Stone Area, suggest moving your waypoint south of the Runnel Stone Cardinal and add another South of Carn Base West top mark Cardinal.

Any reason for Waypoint 6?

Ok shaggy - just to keep you happy ive moved waypoint 7 and added waypoint 21 to keep us the right side of the cardinal marks - allthough I would like to point out that we are all in 6m RIBS not oil tankers

Yes waypoint 6 is so I can get a photo or two of the minack theatre from the water as we pass. I allready have some of it from land.

All,

your all making me jealous - and I will be in Cornwall with the "Hotrocks" from the 28th.

I wouldnt stress about the crossing, as any avid Ribnet readers will know. I made a 2 crossings last year (1 a solo in a force 8 SE 5m breakers - 4 hours and I did not see a glimpse of land) - I had (can say that now) nil boat experience after only purchasing the boat in Jan.

The crossing is mega and the islands are just the best

Regarding fuel - my Mercury 115hp got through 100l, each way.

So ensure you have a knowledge of your fuel consumption.

Mine is gased up from being put to bed. I'm going to bring it back to the house for prepping at the weekend. We should be getting some idea of weather patterns for the next ten days by now Roy.

Looking at the weather charts for Friday 23rd I'm very tempted to take the day off and catch up on my work on Saturday instead.

Can anyone else do the Friday or do we all have work commitments.

Although when they publish forecast for Saturday (Christmas eve) tomorrow we may find that high pressure might linger over us for a little bit longer.

If we miss that high pressure - I don't like the look of whats out over the Atlantic as giving us much of a chance...

Iíve got to work this week, and have a Hospital appointment on the 28th

Valid for Valid for Sat 24 Dec 2005 to Mon 02 Jan 2006

The indications are that there will be a good deal of dry, settled weather across the country during the period as an area of high pressure becomes established, although a fair amount of cloud also seems likely. Initially the high pressure is expected to be positioned to the north of the UK, perhaps allowing a few rain showers to affect some eastern areas. Later in the period, however, it may well be western or northwestern areas that have the greatest chance of any rain. Under these generally quiet conditions areas of mist and fog are also likely. Temperatures should gradually become colder through the period with an increasing chance of frost and some patches of freezing fog.

Need to keep an eye on that low West Atlantic could scupper all our plans.

I see, the medication wont kick in until the 27th, then you'll be free to leave. I've just gotton back from a walk around Trelissick, Carrick Roads looked stunning. Like a sheet of glass. I can do Friday, but I'd rather hang on until we're all free, weather permitting.

Acording to these guys http://www.metcheck.com/V40/UK/FREE/...de=Lands%20End we should be alright to go up until thursday. Friday wind is picking up and saturday / sunday rain and possibly snow.

The more the merrier on this trip but if the weather looks like it might turn - I'm going with who ever is available, on whatever looks like the best day.

I must remind you all though that the tides are going to be real shit for launching mid - end of the week so get ready to be wading those boats out through the channel in the harbour.

Is anybody up for going christmas eve. It could be a winner.

Looking at the weather on Met Check - I think we can do this trip any time between Boxing Day and Friday 30th.

From my perspective Thursday 29th looks like the best day because :-

1. I can get baby sitters for my kids that day.
2. My crew prefer that day.
3. Metcheck says we got very light westerlies and no rain that day (but only 1 deg C air temp brrrr!!!).
4. mollulnan, shaggy and kernow are free that day (hopefully so is randski).

Monday 26th is backup day if by Sunday the long range forecast has changed such that Thursday no longer looks viable.
