So far as I am concerned a boat is a boat - you want to bring your hard boat along its fine by me

For those coming to the Dartmouth area in August you might like to look at this page to plan your stay to coincide with the regatta events
Dartmouthregatta

Red Arrows and the fireworks are usually the most popular and are on Saturday 28th August this year.

Ferry Slip

A couple of other things to watch out for are when the ferry comes in or is pulling out it has been known to wash smaller trailers over the edge so be warned!!! .......also there is a very large step at the end of the slipway so watch out for this on a low tide, oh ... and another thing, if the tide is going out rapidly the ferry tends to make its way downstream quite a bit stretching the cables which then encroach on the public slipway, just make sure your boat and car are not there at the time!

P.S.'right up for a meet up!

I am definately up for some kind of meet. As said previously, we will be down early Saturday 7th August in Paignton. This will probably not be a good day for us as we will be sorting everything out, but any day over the next 2 weeks would be good for us.

What do people want - a cruise along the coast, a session on a beach somewhere or what?

Some sun would be nice at the moment
Weather just looks like it's getting worse all the time now.

I would like to get some pictures of my boat at speed, I'll just go with the flow for anything else.
Best times for me are weekends and evenings after 6 only, as I launch from Paignton slip I have to be in 2hrs either side of low tide.

Hoping to watch the Red Arrows this year then stick around for the Fireworks in the evening of the 28th Aug
