Pembroke Area Easter Cruising - 11th - 18th April

We are taking Dizzy Lizzie to Pembroke for Easter week - arriving Sat 11th and Leaving Sat 18th April, and wonder if anyone else is likely to be around or wants to meet up sometime that week for trips?
We will probably launch from the Neyland area each day or hopefully leave the boats in the water for the week (depending on cost and availability).
As long as the weather is OK hopefully we'll get at least one trip to the Skokholm and Skomer Islands over the week.
Anyone else up for it or want company?
Trevor

I will be in the area for the Easter weekend so will keep an eye on this thread for developments. Downside is that the tides are crap for launching and recovery.

We aren't sure yet when we will arrive on Saturday but will definitely be around Sunday and Monday and are hoping to leave the boat in the water for the week so hopefully won't be affected too much by the tides for launching.
Do you know if Neyland slip is OK for launching and retrieving at all tides or does it dry out too far at low tide?

Neaps on the weekend will be fine, but spring tides during the following week can be a problem on LW. Neyland slip is really wide and not too steep, so pretty easy for launch & recovery. It is relatively exposed though and in windy conditions it can get a bit of a chop on the beam and also suffers a good run of tide. There's plenty of room there, if you need a bit of space to sort things out.

Free parking for car & trailer (detached from car) in a small car park at the top of the slip.

Don't know if the pontoon has been put back there yet. The pontoons get taken away during the winter months.

Where are you staying, Trevor?

We're staying at the Trinity Villa/Lodge/Cottage accomodation just north of the Bridge where the A477 crosses the estuary. We think that there are swinging moorings available just outside the accomodation but I don't think we will really know if these will be suitable until we get there on Saturday.
FYI we are hoping to have two boats in the water - Dizzy Lizzy (6.5m Ballistic) and a 4.2m Zodiac with a 50hp Yamaha. The Zodiac owners are currently a bit timid about it's capabilities so hopefully with others in support they will get a bit more confident about taking it further than just pottering up to the Pub in Lawrenny.
