Rocky Scillonean Trip



Film footage by Greg Martin HERE - it was horrendous, especially at 0:40 seconds and after that...sheesh!

The trip to the Isles of Scilly is a notably trecherous one. Why didn't they cancel The Scillonean crossing? I've done the trip many times and have been seasick on occasion, but this takes the biscuit. Prodigal 2 went on a very choppy ride a few years back, he said "if this footage is of Mounts Bay and Mousehole, what they hell must've it been like out in the Atlantic??" Good point, apparently it took them 4 hours to cross, rather than 2hrs 50 mins standard. God help you if you were just on a day trip - you would be spending 8 hours on a ship to merely puke, with a 4 hour on land interval of not doing a lot in between. You would not be keen on a drink, or to eat a fish and chip lunch with a cream tea chaser. Nor would you be jeen to go off island to Tresco or St Agnes.
