A dive would be good. Scylla is around 65 miles away - may be a little far? - though I have dived her 3 times this year and there is still so much to see.

Some good diving in Start Bay - we could even pick our own seafood for a bech BBQ?

There are also several good wrecks around - but vis can be an issue

Or we could trail the RIBs to Plymouth and launch there for a Scylla Dive

The options are endless - but we could organise several things so that everyone can be accommodated.

Evening cruises after 6 would also be great for me

So many things to choose from .... where shoud we start!

We are not divers but could be keen on a beach bar-b-que/evening cruise,would have to be back by dark though as no lights.
We are down 7-14 august.

There's a great beach on the Torbay side of Dartmouth just outside the mouth called Newfoundland, we go over there quite a bit, inaccessible by land so you're guaranteed a spot.

Found this on the Garmin Mapsource - looks ideal as it will suit boats coming from either direction

Can you run the RIBs up the beach, or is it anchor off and swim ashore?

How does Sunday 9th August sound? It is the only weekend day I am not booked at the moment.
There is the Resnova where we can all moor up and eat in the middle of the Dart if Dartmouth is the preffered option or there is the Torquay visitors pontoon with the Beacon Quay Pub right there?

Just a couple of options.
