Totally,but even having the boat doesn't guarantee a gap in the cliff with a bit of sand to yourself nowadays.

We used to walk down the low cliff on tristram field carpark and jump in the water off the rocks instead of paddling out at high tide, now its all fenced off with "danger cliff" notices on it, probably because of the drunk public school boy who fell off it while walking back to his parents holiday home.

From this end with an overnight crossing with car and boat with a single passenger it cost me 400 round trip

Probably too ambititous for this year, but I'd love to cruise the Gulf of Morbien on the Southern side of Brittany, I have friends that live in Vannes one who's a sailer and one that's got a small 5m fishing boat.
