New Scilly Islands Sailor's Guide - A Scilly Islands Meetup?

David Eastburn of Moonshot has just published:

Harbours and Anchorages of Scilly: A Yachtsman's Guide to the Isles of Scilly. It's available on Amazon and modestly priced.

David also suggested a Scilly Isles meet up. Those of you who read of my misadventure last year will understand that I think it's an excellent idea. I like the concept of sailing with expert guidance. 

I've asked David to suggest a date or dates. Any interest from others?

I post David's reply:
Often, when I sail to Scilly, I seem to collect an little gaggle of friends' yachts or friends of friends' yachts in a loose, informal flotilla, so this would be nothing new to me.
As it happens, I have a trip planned beginning on June 6 (weather permitting). If anyone cared to join up, I would suggest we met up at Cliffside [In Flushing opposite Falmouth - ed] for a pre-cruise BBQ on the evening of that day and set sail the following morning (HW 0355). My preference would be for a 2-day journey anchoring somewhere in Mounts Bay on the night of June 7, but if conditions were perfect  ...
For me, it might just be too soon. I was, as I was last year, caught out by lockdown with a major task started - weather might be against me finishing so I can sail 1st June as I planned.

Hi David and Peter,

Yes it sounds a really nice idea.  I am off on a jolly late June but I may be able to come along if I manage to sort Helix in time.  May I ask were Cliffside is please?  Really nice idea.
