West Country and Scilly Isles, Paul Brown

The West Country and Isles of Scilly are often described as a hidden paradise in the corner of England, and in this talk Paul will attempt to show why it is such an amazing sailing destination. Having cruised this area a number of times on board their Ovni 385 Little Wing, Paul and family have made the most of their shallow draft by gunkholing up the rivers and estuaries, exploring the nooks and crannies in the Isles of Scilly and drying out in beautiful harbours.

Illustrated by numerous photos and videos, Paul’s talk will show what’s possible in a “normal” holiday from work, and demonstrate why getting to the Isles of Scilly is a dream held by so many sailors.
