Rib cruises south Devon.....

Any local members or viaitors to the south Devon area planning or interested in planning a cruise? I am based in Plymouth and would like to chat or meet up and try to plan something. Get in touch if you have any ideas or are already in the planning stages.

Andy

Have you thought about the Scilly Isles?
Unless you are camping, accommodation is quite expensive.
It would make a nice long runout for you, via Wolf Rock.

I know that it would be possible to do the Scilly Isles in my Rib, but probably a little adventurous for me initially unless I was in a large group and the weather and swell was perfect... I only have a 5.7m boat. Thinking Fowey/Falmouth and Salcombe/Torquay if there is any interest in getting a few boats together.

OK, I understand that.
My first "long distance" trip was ALL the way out to the Eddystone...and back!

If you go past Looe, keep the Ranneys Cardinal well to your starboard as the rocks there extend a long way out. It looks deep enough as you wave to Looe Island but BEWARE!

Another way to do the coast is to "port hop".
Go via Rame Head to Looe to Fowey to Gribbon Head to Par to Charlestown to Black Head to Mevagissey.
Calling only VERY carefully at the "port" of your choice.
This way you will see some stunning coastline.

Hello

we're often out of Plymouth. You've missed the pasty run and the salcombe ice cream trip but we will be out again soon and usually shout on here.

Brian,

Many thanks for the replies and advice. I have certainly looked at port hopping and go down to Looe fairly regularly and also up to Hope Cove/Salcombe area etc. I am really looking for the more social aspect of meeting up with a few boats and learning from their experience etc. The long trips don't bother me so much, it is more the aspect of being single engined so tend to keep relatively local.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply... yes I noticed the pasty run post... obviously after it had happened!! I will definitely keep an eye out on here and see if anyone posts anything. Looking forward to meeting up with some other Rib.Net users and gettingnout on the boat more over the summer. I often work abroad but will be available most of this summer so aiming to make the most of it.

Andy

Hi Andy,

Weather looking OK so planning on coming round to the dry stack on Saturday if you're around? Should be there early afternoon.

Hoping to get a close(ish) look at HMS Queen Elizabeth on the way in, then will probably go back out later in the afternoon to see the Red Arrows displaying.

Hi Andy,

There are quite a few S. Devon Ribbers, who post cruises on here on or the RHIB facebook group (personally I don't follow FB). Alway welcoming new people. As Treerat says, you've missed the annual "Pasty Run" from Plymouth, but i;m sure there will be other cruises.

After a few, you'll have personal contact to arrange / co-ordinate cruises.

Hope to meet you on the water one day
LT.

Hi,

Thanks for the info... I didn't know that there was a FB group so will have a look for that. Looking forward to meeting up with some peopĺe on the water this year and will keep an eye out both on here and FB for cruises.
