Our Big Adventure to the Scilly Isles in July 2012

The boats will set off from Christchurch and travel the three legs to Salcombe (Plymouth) first, Newlyn (Penzance) second and onto St Mary´s (Isle of Scilly) third. The return trip will visit the same ports in reverse. Each leg represents one days travel and the ports have been chosen to make it easy for people to join or leave using public transport (trains and planes).
The cost of each onboard leg is £110 per person. Overnight accommodation is the personal responsibility of each passenger, although the norm is for the group as a whole to locate suitable B&B accommodation each night. There are no fuel surcharges.
The three days spent exploring the islands are charged at £50 per day per passenger.
We make maximum use of the time travelling and each passenger gets instruction on passage planning and pilotage for log RIB journeys and shares the task of driving.
This will be the third big adventure organised by Saltwater Experience, the first being an 18 day marathon around Britain in 2010 and the second a trip to the Channel Islands 2011. Both were hugely enjoyable adventure so don´t miss out!
