If we do get lucky with the weather - but the sea state is not perfect you can always put the slightly less seasonsed SIBers onto one of the RIBS and then tuck the SIB in behind a RIB in its wake - heavy boats do tend to iron out the small chop a bit.

Pace? Not a problem, getting lost might be, I still can't get my Garmin fired up. Off to get a new fuel tit this am as mine is weeping. You'd have been proud of my 'spring low, launch at Mylor on Sunday. The car park guy reckoned I had no chance, I backed in over the mud and shoved it in the channel, then waded out pushing it with about 5" under it.

ok this shit weather is my fault . I just bought a new bike and the thunder storm started the afternoon I was due to pick it up in Falmouth . Then thick fog on the ride home .
Now this .

Whenever I buy a new bike it rains for 40 days and nights .

So this year i got a new boat and bike so the weather won't get better till next year .
Sods Law rules OK

No this crap weather is here because I sorted the garden out, put the furniture outside and set the barby up.

And the worst bit is I can't even use a hosepipe to wash my car but I can pay for a pressure hose at the local garage. How bizarre.

Good old England heh. Can't wait till I retire and F---- Off.

The weather actually looks dryer than originally forcast - problem, is they now have fairly moderate north westerlies.

I suggest we postpone the scillies trip for another weekend and all head to pentewan sands and join hugh jardon for some wakeboarding, waterskiing, inflatable towing, beach bbqs, etc, etc, etc... It will be sheltered there from the north westerlies.

EDIT : in fact the long range forecast has the following weekend 3rd/4th June looking good for a Scillies trip

the bad weather could be a coincidence for you all but for me whenever we take a trip to cornwall we hit bad weather, last year we had a mixture of weather so was not quite so bad as other years.

Brad will be down this weekend as well so you are all welcome to meet up and do a lot of boating, eating and drinking. cant wait to get out there and experience it all. Roy and myself will be having some BBQ eating competitions!

Roy that is a good idea . I think this weather is going to be shit at least for the first half of the week and then we will probably be left with messy seas .

Would love to meet up at Pentewan

Had better order that Donut for Caja

and I can offer a champion team at any BBQ eating competition , and maybe a bag of oak or ash woodchips .
