Jubilee week in Salcombe

We'll be spending the Queens Jubilee week around Salcombe, any one else in the area?

I've done Torbay & Plymouth, but never the bit in the middle.
Any suggestions for the best bits?

I live in Salcombe - it depends on the weather and the tides - there's a great pub up Southpool Creek, you can get to Frogmore and Kingsbridge on the tide but it all dries out.

There are great beaches on the East side of the estuary and on the Salcombe side there are two beaches North Sands with the Winking Prawn, good for day time and evening, and further round is South Sands with a couple of hotels and reachable by ferry from town.

Dartmouth, Hope Cove, Burgh Island, Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo are all reachable in a boat of your size on a good day. Don't miss the Island Street Bar and Grill in the evening with live music!

Thanks Cookee,
What's the deal with moorings? The harbourmaster can only give me a drying mooring that's wet 2 hrs either side of high tide!
I've got a dinghy to get to a deep water mooring but the h/master didn't seem too interested?
The tides for this week don't look to restrictive but I'd prefer the flexibility of a full time wet mooring.
Any ideas?
We're staying in a cottage at east prawle and I thought of using Millbay beach to pick up mum and dad to save the long drive into Salcombe each day....any other suggestions on the east bank

We are down in Salcombe that week. Staying at the former Salcombe Hotel, which is now apartments. Its right on the river, and we chose it as you get a 5M wet mooring with it! So only need to launch and recover once! As we have a 4M Rib, with a 40 on the back, I dont think we will be venturing outside the estury, but having been a couple of times before, there is plenty to do inside (as Cookee listed above..) - maybe a Ribnet beer in South Pool one evening? I havent looked at the tide times for Jubillee week yet however..

They belong to Yeowards - call them as they and Winters (all the same outfit now) have moorings - Reddish Marine have a few and so do Blue Water.

I am in Dartmouth with the race boat on the 2nd and 3rd at a try a boat event with the BMF.

Not all of them it is where the harbour master put me when I had the 6.5m hard boat said I was too long to go on the foreshore moorings!

I would have loved to see the race boat, but we won't be there until late on the Sunday. I'm part of the safety boat fleet for the Queens Jubilee pageant on the Thames and will be driving down once that has finished.

I'll find some phone numbers and give them a ring re moorings.

Thanks for the help.
