Arriving in St Mary's
The majority of boats will finish Leg 1 sometime during Saturday morning leaving the rest of the day to rest or to explore the islands. See some useful links about exploring the islands below.
On arrival in the Isles of Scilly most boats moor in St Marys harbour, either on moorings buoys or alongside the wall (which drys). Moorings fees for St Marys harbour are included in the entrance fee.
There are a range of restaurants, pubs and a small shop for food on the Island although most of these are in Hugh Town on St Marys.
