We're down in Plymouth this weekend for the Yealm Passage Race with 3, possibly 4 boats so give us a wave if you see us. We're launching at QAB.

Hmm latest forecast: overcast, light rain, F3 rising to F4 SW-S and heavier rain by 1600.
Still, it was tipping down with rain when we started last year!

If we leave at 1300 then around 1345, looking at a bit of a diversion to avoid the lumpy shoal just on the East side so 1400 ish I suspect.

Plymouth, turn right, when you see a big rock, turn right

Worked last year!!

However going to try and avoid Sherberry Shoal this year as it threw up some interesting waves last year - if you can plot the last bit to avoid the worse it'll help.
