With the weather so grim I've been looking at tides and trying to predict when the sun will be out for what is fast becoming the best South West Event in the diary - the Plymouth To Looe Pasty Run.
The date that seems to fit both tide and weather is Saturday the 14th May.
High tide seems to be showing as 1215 Devonport, (2016 Tide Table for Plymouth (Devonport), England for fishing <º(((><
) so thinking that a 1130 jump off from the breakwater fort, Plymouth Sound for the 14nm (approx) trip over to Looe will be in order.
A 1130 start time will get us to Looe 1215 ish which is bang on high water, which leaves loads of time to eat a pasty, grab a tea from Black dog (if he's open) and toddle back for a dropping tide recovery - perfect.
As you all know my tide planning hasn't always been the best but after checking with others I'm pretty sure the times are right for this year
If my times are off (again) please do shout.
