PEM18 Pembrokeshire and the Scilly Isles Lead Skipper Alan Mortimore
Sailing from Neyland in Pembrokeshire offers access to a number of fine wild life and sailing areas. In late August / early September 2018 we have chartered two 37/38ft yachts to sail from Milford Haven to explore the Scilly Isles. Stopovers could include Padstow and a visit to Lundy Island.
This option could involve long passages and night sailing is likely. Weather and wind will dictate whether other options need to be considered such as north Wales, southern Ireland or calling in to locations on the north and south coast of the Bristol channel.
This Sailex will have 5 berths per yacht - 10 in total and costs will be £300 per berth to include an optional outboard engine for the dinghy on each yacht. Members pre-registering for this sailex were offered the opportunity to book and 8 places have been taken leaving two berths available for the remaining membership. We are exploring the option of adding a third yacht but at the present time there is no availability. As of January 2018 we are now fully booked on this Sailex and reservations are open for a standby berth.
The Isles Of Scilly
Lying west of Land's End the Scilly Isles are a haven of tranquillity. Basking in a micro climate caused by the gulfstream, the white sparkling sands and crystal clear waters create a paradise which is closer than you think. With over a dozen anchorages in the archipelago to choose from and the ever changing Atlantic Ocean all around, no Scillies trip is ever the same.
LATEST - August 16th one place has come available due to a member having to withdraw from this event at late notice. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED PLEASE MAKE CONTACT WITH JOHN BRYANT OR THE LEAD SKIPPER - ALAN MORTIMORE ASAP.
