Four boats participating in the OGA Sou' by Sou'West Cruise in Company, and representing four different OGA Areas, have reached the Isles of Scilly. The weather conditions improved after the fleet was stormbound in Falmouth allowing 'Gwenili' (East Coast), 'Jan Blank' (Netherlands), 'Susan J' (South West) and 'Capraia' (Bristol Channel) to complete their passage to St Agnes, Hugh Town, St Mary's and Tresco. Most members of the fleet are now making plans to return to home ports . . .

More details and photos are available on 'Sailing by', along with some historic tales of sail from the South West.
