Makes sense to me, Polperro for a pasty - Polperro Bakery in Polperro, Cornwall for Cornish Cream Teas

With one at Fowey as a back up

And the dive shop at Bovisands if the weather is nasty

I realy don't think the sand bar at Salcombe will be an issue, i have never had a problem there, well just one, towing a yacht in that had a dead engine, they recon they felt the keel touch the bottom, funny i didn't feel a thing.

Lets see what the weather is like on the day then and take advice from those coming that know teh patch ( I don't), East for Cream Teas, West for Pasties - either is a winner

Shame about Looe but as a run it'll happen some when soon.

With A diverburger at Bovisands after a run around the breakwater as a bad weather back up something will be fun

I'd vote for Fowey -come back with tide & prevailing wind behind - but only if it's nice!!

Lets see what the weather does and who fancies where, Polperro, Fowey or Salcombe seem to be the options.
