I can see the slip at Orestone - but can't see anywhere to tie up whilst parking the car / trailer etc?

Unless I'm reading my tide tables wrong, it looks like HW Looe is at 0827 and 2041 on 18th April (17th is peak springs, so large range still on 18th). You'd need to be looking at the following weekend to get a HW close to midday.

you can tie up on the side of the slip, if no one else is there, there are a couple of steel rings to tie to.

That'll bugger the Friday if that's the right time - I asked Google which is where the original time came from

The Monday would work though - and I know I can swap my pass. That'll be 1130 hw ish so fine for a pasty at 1230 ish still?

Don't quote me though - I'm probably one of the least experienced in here, but I was lucky enough to get a new Reeds Almanac for Christmas!

Now I just need to save up for one of those bouncy things with a big engine.....

Until I get my little yellow book I'm lost and Santa didn't arrive with it

Easter Friday or Monday I can play - will the tides let us? Looe is tidal but access is ok up to 2 hours or so either side of HW.

HELP...........................
