Smugglers Go Forth (aka "The Smuggler's Scuttler 4")

WELCOME TO 'THE SMUGGLER'S SCUTTLER'
"A dishonest man you can always trust to be dishonest".

Captain Blue Bard (Like 'Bluebeard' but Cornish) of Whitesand Bay has wrecked the almighty ship, 'The Dragon's Strumpet' and has been washed ashore to Skull Island with all the loot!
I will be recruiting a merry band of wreckers with my Quartermaster, 'Swinging Cutlass Sally Mcghee' by my side in the upcoming weeks.
You will be responsible for individually bringing the items back to the end of the land where I shall reward you. Make no mistake...NO LOOT AND YOU WILL TAKE A SHORT WALK OFF A VERY LONG PLANK AND THAT WILL BE THE ONLY REWARD FOR YOU!
There is but another problem...
Customs are protecting said loot against piracy and along the path you will be warned what happens to wreckers who step foot on the island. Will ye dare to rob the dead and have the rum bottle to peg leg it as fast as you can past all the other customs officers en route and not get hung, drawn and quartered in the process?

It's an arduous task and only the strongest of pirate will survive! 
What will be left of it after being half plunged beneath The Brisons! ('Brisons' is French for 'breakers')

Ye be warned my merry band of thieves!!

PLEASE NOTE THERE WILL BE AN ENFORCED CUT OFF OF 4 HOURS & 30 MINUTES WITH A CUT OFF AT CAPE CORNWALL AID STATION AT 2 HOURS 10 MINUTES. 


DISTANCE - 13.1 MILES.

START - Outside of 'THE LAND'S END HOTEL' @ THE LAND'S END LANDMARK TO CAPE CORNWALL AND BACK.
