Treerat took us through the lumpiest seas he could find over the shallows at around Sherberry Rocks / Errant Patch last year then wondered why it had got a bit bouncy!

Seriously though, your navigation & route is your responsibility, so I'd plot a route - good practice even if visibility is good and we all keep together (although not too close): blindly following others isn't the best plan.....doing it with at least one eye open is better

Looking forward to meeting you on Sat

You too.

Looking forward to it. As i have said before, this is my first cruise of any distance in the sea so please excuse the questions, What is a safe distance to avoid the shallows?

No such thing as a daft question young sir.

Looking at the chart plenty of water - which ever route we take?

[QUOTELooking at the chart plenty of water - which ever route we take?[/QUOTE]
Apart from the darker blue and green bits

As Treerat says, we intend to cut South around Shertberry Rocks / Errant Patch this year - that blue bit a couple of miles East of Looe.

There's no danger or lack of water, just an awkward chop caused by the shallower water that was a bit uncomfortable in a shorter hull

May I suggest we use Channel 08 for comms on the run?

Roll on Saturday

Not worried about the weather.....but there had better be some pasties in Looe this time!
Rain sort of holding off, wind backing to F4 SSW by 1600.
Local conditions will mean sun & slight sea
Should be launching Mountbatten c.1100.

quick report

So how did the 2015 Pasty run go? Well the pasties were great, and lots of them this year but the trip over certainly shook the cobwebs out.

We launched at Saltash as planned, meeting up with another rib on the slip - that had also driven down from North Devon, tempted by the call of a pasty.

A safe and all working launch followed by a blast in the Sound and the pair of us ventured into Bovisand harbor for a mug of tea and use of the rest rooms and we were joined by our smallest vessel for the trip. 30 minutes of sitting in the sun, enjoying the tea and watching the world go by and it was time to head off to the fort for the jump off.

Coats were duly pulled out (didn't need them on the run down the river) and we were pleasantly surprised to see another 2 ribs and a hard boat waiting for us. Within the next 10 minutes a further 3 ribs arrived and we were a fleet of 9

Once we headed out away from the breakwater things changed - oh did they change. It was lovely inside the wall, plenty of flat water, very little noticeable wind and all nine boats were carving the water at around 25kns.

Once the protection of the headland and wall was behind the sea took on a mind of its own. The swell seemed to come from all angles - including the rear! Waves were negotiated, jumped and at times enjoyed. Squeals of delight and screams of fear were heard - and that was just from Ian in his big toy!!

Due to the size of the waves we lost our smallest boat and the boat with the smallest people - a good call to enjoy the Sound was made.

Part way we lost our largest boat who decided that tea was preferable to a pasty but the rest of us ploughed on.

An hour after leaving Plymouth we made the entrance to Looe, a whole 14nm away, the sun was out and the area full of dingy sailors and kids crabbing.

The 6 of us that were left met up with yet another member on the run in and 7 of us moored up and headed into town for a great Pasty, well some of us did - 2 boats decided liquid was preferable to meat!!

After an hour ashore it was time to head back, we left the local boat behind, and left two moored up in Looe for a later run back and the 4 of us had a much smoother journey home with the wind and swell behind us taking only 35 minutes compared to the hour on the way out.

All in all a hard trip compared to last year but great company, good pasties and much enjoyment made the trip worth while.

Thank you to all that made the effort to come down and enjoy a pasty - I look forward to seeing you all again soon

Well done to those intrepid souls who battled to Looe and back today.

Unfortunately the girls found the seas past Penlee Point too challenging, so discretion was the better part of valour for us, especially when I was anticipating the seas would be building as the wind rose in the afternoon.

Anyway after cuppa and burger at Bovisands we had a good afternoon in the Sound and exploring up the Tamar past the Dockyard.

Great to meet up with some old friends and meet some new ones.

Good day on the water in any case

Thanks for organising again Andy.

Now for 2016........
