    There are some YouTube videos from a chap who did it, well almost, in his Mirage 28. First video below.

    Dale at the mouth of the Haven where a free island pontoon is laid during summer months.

    Unless you are unlucky there are normally a couple of free mooring buoys on the East side of Lundy. Big tidal range there so if you do have to anchor have plenty of cable.
    I'd rather be tethered to a pad eye than tethered to an iPad.

    Thank you so much for pointing me to this series of sailing videos.. I found Doom Bar with google and its https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjCEisfgooo

    Such a good small boat sailor and film maker. He captures the essence of single handed sailing brilliantly and because he is so cool about it makes it appear much easier than it is. Cannot recommend his UTube channel highly enough!

    Thanks for Dale and indeed for the Lundy info... I will be doing it in a new to me old boat so must work hard at the anchor chain situation and windlass...

    Glad I could help. Paul is a lovely guy responds to comments on his channel. He is doing some interesting modifications to his Mirage 28, my last boat was one of those, and has some great ideas. I've been following his installation of the heater with interest.

    Is that because the sand is Doom coloured?

    What IS the colour of Doom?

    I know I could do it in 36 hours direct but would prefer not to in a boat thatīs strange to me.

    Route/Port suggestions gratefully accepted - I have never sailed that area
    There are none, from Milford, unless you see Newlyn as a plan B.

    Get a mate, enough diesel, pot noodles and pucker up.

    But worrying if you have to ask that question!

    Last year I did Milford to Padstow then anchored at St Ives to get the right tide around Lands End then straight to Falmouth.
