I guess July, or maybe August

camping is permitted on the Priory bay beach I think, but we'll show you a better location

Anyone any ideas about what weekend to aim for yet?

Very Roughly it looks like the 1st and 3rd weekend give us High Water @ lunchtime, and the 2nd and 4th weekends give us low water @ Lunchtime.

Bearing in mind the shallows at Briory bay it depends if you'd rather loose beach space through the day, or risk being stranded in the lagoon behind the sand bar until the tide comes back in.

I'd rather go as early in the month as possible, but don't want anyone to have to work around me as plans could change.

Nasher.

Which month?

I think low water at lunchtime is probably the best bet-it means that those of us that are going to make a move to the normal camping spot aren't high and dry.

My preference would be July 9-10, in line with Nashers earlier in the month comment as well, but that is British Grand Prix weekend...
Equally happy for it to be August, but holidays will start being more of a problem I guess...

For the camping thing to work, other options would be :-

(times as per the link Nos left earlier - guessing that website shows times as GMT, so added an hour to get BST times below - someone let me know if that's the wrong assumption please)

Weekends at end of June do not seem to work from a tide perspective

July 9-10 Sat LW 13:28 0.3m HW 20:06 2.9m Sun HW 08:36 2.8m LW 14:38 0.4m

July 23-24 Sat LW 12:27 0.6m HW 18:58 2.6m Sun HW 07:19 2.5m LW 12:23 0.7m This weekend conflicts with the Alderney run, which I want to try and go on this year, so would be out for me.

August 6-7 Sat LW 12:01 0.2m HW 18:37 3.0m Sun HW 07:04 2.9m LW 13:04 0.4m

August 20-21 Sat LW 10:58 0.4m HW 17:26 2.8m Sun HW 05:43 2.7 LW 11:41 0.6m
