    Default Solent to Ireland?

    I have a meeting next week in Wexford, Ireland. So, methinks, I wonder just how possible / expensive it would be to take the boat. Tack on a nice little cruising holiday afterwards....
    Is this completely insane? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
    Or maybe, more realistic would be road transport to say Dublin. Anybody got a rough idea of costs?

    I Can't Say How Expensive It Will Be But Lands End To Kilmore Quay Is About 8 Hours At 18 Knots .
    Wexford Is Not That Good For Bringing Your Boat , But Kilmore Quay Has Great Facilities & A Great Marina.
    A Bus Ride Or Taxi Is Under Half An Hour To Wexford Town .
    It Would Be A Bit Of A Trip Unless You Were To Have A Bit Of A Holiday While You Were Here [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Suggest 2 legs...

    Solent - Falmouth

    Falmouth - Kilmore Quay

    No real facilities at Wexford Town but local boat club very helpful with pilotage over sand bar (s) and mooring.

    I can get you a link if interested.

    Diesel available at Kilmore (tanker) just talk to Nicky or Peter at HMs office.
    Keep your sunny side up :-)

    In an ideal world, with a decent spell of settled weather, I would probably give it go. However.....

    Thanks guys for the input but I think I will be flying this time.
