Scillys Trip - 10th - 13th June

Hi all,

Now we have the new boat and are getting to know her well, and with the Pubs being open soon we have booked the time off to try a Scillys trip.

This trip was due to be the Channel Islands but have just had to cancell the hotels because of the required 14 day Covid isolation is still in place.

The Greenbank Hotel in Falmouth is booked (10th - 13th July) and we are happy to have found Mylor Yatch Harobour will let us launch there and store the trailer - £4.00 PD is great value.

Weather permitting we will be going across to the Scillys (Stopping by Newlyn for a fuel top up) on the Saturday and/or Sunday. If anyone wants to tag along or has any advice (its our first time over) please let me know.

The more the merrier - especially now we can get a pint too!

Hi 36valley,

We havnt really planned that far yet. I was thinking of having one good day there on the Saturday and home (Mylor) before dark. Then repeat the following day if the weather allows?

'very' weather dependant I could be up for this. Would need to run down from Brixham to Falmouth beforehand. So would need to sort out marina berth and B&B for the weekend.

I've been planing to spend a few days exploring Falmouth and the surrounding area so this could work well if weather gods agree.

I assume you mean July rather than June?!

Falmouth is lovely, and well worth taking the time to explore up the river to Truro on a high tide. And a visit down into the Helford River, which is really nice and peaceful. I really love going into the little harbour underneath St Michaels Mount, although given that's National Trust I don't know if it will be open for visitors then or not in the current climate.

Assuming you have a petrol RIB, are you sure Newlyn Harbour has petrol? Last time I was there in the sailing yacht a couple of years ago, I thought it was only diesel from the harbour, and petrol you'd have to take cans up to the local garage.

Scilly is absolutely stunning if you've never visited, definitely helps to have good weather though! Moorings in Hugh Town are typically very bumpy, personally I avoid it in all but flat calm weather, very easy to get to town from there though. Porth Cressa is slightly better in some conditions, but one of the most protected spots available is between Bryher and Tresco in New Grimsby Sound. There are moorings there, or if you can dry out, Green Bay on Bryher is a nice flat sandy bay to anchor in - we've spent many nights on the sand there on our sailing yacht (which has a lifting keel!). All the islands offer something slightly different, we love St Martin and Agnes/Gugh, and the outer/Eastern islands around Great Ganilly and Menawethan are probably where you'd find the most wildlife - typically loads of seals around there. Do be slightly careful with navigation between the islands - loads of shallow areas and rocks, but as long as you read the charts and check the tides, you can safely visit everything.

Falmouth to Scilly is about 60NM from memory, so a reasonable passage in what can be fairly rough open water, if you want to go there and back in a day. Obviously dependant on what you/your passengers enjoy - they may need to be prepared for a bumpy ride!

I did a short video of one of our (sailing) trips here:

The trip is on my list for the year, I'd probably trail down to Penzance, launch there and head over.

Keep us updated on your plans please as could well be up for joining you if the ducks line up.

If you don't have the weather for a Scillys trip there's plenty on offer around the coast. I'm local and use Mylor all the time. Bring some pound coins with you, there's pressure washers on both slips if you want to give your trailer a quick wash off after launching/recovery. If you want to message me on here I'd be happy to meet up and have a chat down at Mylor.

I'm going to have to give this a miss this time. Family commitments mean I can't get away for long enough.

The weather looks really good for the weekend so have a great trip and hopefully catch up with you another time.

Hi All,

Last post before we go, were off early tomorrow to get to Falmouh around 08:00 the very loose and fluid plan is;

Friday - Have a run out to Falmouth Bay looking for Doplphins and getting some bait for Sunday

Saturday - Scillyies run - Meet up with Maximus (and anyone else whos coming) Around 10:30 Falmoth Bay - A good day expolring the islands (Maybe snorkel with the seals) and back to the Fal for Dinner/Supper.

Sunday - 05:00 Blue Shark fishing between Fal and Meva or back to the Scillys with Maximus depending on how boat weary we are.

Monday - Helford/Penryn/St Mawes for Brunch retrieve the boat and home.

If any one wants to tag along for any part of the trip or just meet up for a pint and chat boats - Dale 07860 182259

Cant wait now - its holiday eve and the weather is looking great!
