All this talk of Pasty Runs, as I am away on Saturday, and havent had the boat out since boxing day I needed a day out. We launched this morning at Saltash, wizzed round the harbour down the devon coast towards Newton Ferris. It was windy (F4 ish) and cold, seas were fine on the devon side. Wrapped up warm we were fine, you do need gloves and all the kit. My son got a bit cold and we headed back to for a hot meal, and bought him some decent gloves. My advice would be that its fine heading out of Plymouth on the sheltered devon side, lovey heading west with the wind behind you, but I would fancy a return trip from Fowey head into that wing too much.
Hope you all have a good day
