sending the kids off to find fresh muscles on the rocks yesterday was the best idea I've seen so far (not quite as convinced about the limpets though; a bit chewy) - closely followed by esthers chocolate bananas

Hi Sticky,
Thank you very much for the kind offer (parking on your drive) but I've just heard from Kernow and he's coming along too. It's probably best for the two of us to park at heliport.

That was lucky Sticky, the RAF bombed the Torrey Canyon when that caused a massive slick.

If we get tight for BBQ space we could always flip that seat, fill it with charcoal and hay've a couple of bullocks on there.

I can get another trailer on my drive and there is parking on the road out side our house, Paridise Park is better though.

No worries if you want to park at the Heliport, I didnt get around to calling them, I can do this tomorrow.

Hi Shag,

Yeah, if you think Paradise Park is best I'll go along with that. I'm planning to get to Pz by 09.30 (as long as Kernow can get up on time )
Do you think that's early enough?

I'll take the kids wakeboard which will be OK for the bigger kids.

Sorry but we canít leave the trailers in Paradise Park, with the half term they have a lot of coaches using the car park.

There are two options for ya:

1. Leave the trailers and cars at the Heliport car park cost is £6 for the night no need to book, I can pick you up at the Heliport on the way back from dropping off me trailer and truck.

2. Leave one trailer on my driveway and one car parked on the road, leave one trailer and car on Sticky's driveway.

Heliport might be the best option

I was planning on getting down to Pz at 09:00 and have the boat in the water for 09:30 its going to be a 20-30 min round trip to drop the trailer and car off at Hayle, so should be ready to go at 10:00.

Roy do you have the waypoints for the passage.

Shaggy

No not £129.5 per litre - that's silly

129.5p per litre

OR

£1.295 per litre

I figure most people will want a 50 litre top up and with it 30 pence a litre more expensive than the main land thats £15 over what you would pay on the main land for 50 litres

So you have a choice - pay £15 extra for the fuel at sibleys or take cans

Hi shaggy tonight is good let us know pz/hayle + time + how many cans u need + whats the cost of the car park that time of day.

Re: the car parking/fuel there is a `possibility` of safe parking in the grounds of a manner house with a few acreas of land(Someone clare knows).Aprox 2 miles pz slip.How many would be interested?We could leave all the cars/trailers and split a taxi both ways.We have,nt approached the chap yet will wait on feed back.
It would save roy and others time and fuel.

P.s Clare is a little concerned as someone has mentioned (The deadly Seven Sisters!!!!) How do I ease her fears!!!!!!!!

Firstly she has nothing to worry about as we are not going anywhere near the seven stones reef.

secondly even if we were - we are in RIBs that draw less than half a meter of water not tankers - only at a spring low would the seven stones reef pose any kind of threat to a RIB.

In my experience when a rock is near enough to the surface for it to pose a threat to a RIB you can see it a mile off as the waves heap up and often break in the shallow water. The only time a near surface rock would go un detected by eye is if you were in completelty currentless and waveless water which is extremely rare.

I will ring you early evening Sticky (whats your real name) and have a chat...
