yes Penzance - but just saying it dries out 1 hr either side of low water doesnt help - at springs or neaps - if you look at the depth of the tides at the start of the week - they are more than a meter different than the end of the week - do you know at exactly what depth the harbour is dry ?

By my reckoning (using the rule of 12ths)

The tides during my 1 day trip launch window (8-9am) are as follows.

DATE 8am - 9am
=============
26th 2.5 - 3.0
27th 2.0 - 2.4
28th 1.7 - 1.7
29th 1.9 - 1.6
30th 2.2 - 1.5
31st 3.2 - 2.1
01st 4.2 - 3.1

Which I think rules out a one day trip on wed/thu/fri as the tides will be below 2m (this is assuming 2m is the kind of depth that Penzance stops being usable - If anybody knows the actual depth above datum that you can still launch at Penzance slipway this would be usefull).

So we are left with either a 1 day trip Monday, Tuesday, Saturday or Sunday or back to the 2 day option allowing us to launch later.

I will try and ring some more accomodation today - to see how receptive they are to extremely late notice on the actual day we come out.

That's not fair, Luke. You've been a loyal crew member to him. Out in all weather, tied to your post and now he's planned a decent trip you've been kicked to the shore.

MUTINY!

Have another sad motley crew member to join the dishonourable ranks aboard the good ship "Hey Joe" for this voyage. His name is Dave Doom and as of the 4th of Jan he will officially become a "Pikey Caravan Shifter".

Hi Roy
After having a chat with a mate who sails at PZ a lot and checking the chart there is a small channel out past Albert Pier, he recons we should be able to launch even at low tide although we will have to back down the slip and onto the sand! It does look possible as the chart gives a depth of 0.3-0.6 in that channel above CD but we might have to wait say 45 mins either side of LW if the bottom of the harbour looks a bit boggy
