In part because of his disability, and his wish to avoid creating dangerous pressure to reach particular ports on particular days, he isn’t setting a definite schedule. However the plans are to visit: Portland, Dartmouth, perhaps Torquay, Salcombe, Plymouth, Fowey, Falmouth, perhaps the Helford River, the Scilly Isles. A further update will be issued at or before the Scillies. He will publish expected arrival times on social media when they are known.
