If the morning goes to plan may well see you in Salcombe. We're looking at a late morning launch from Plymouth if we can escape.

Had a great day on the water

We departed Brixham 1030.
Ran down to Salcombe via Skerries buoy (but no dolphins) Sunny, warm slight SE sea, arrived Salcombe 1145 - got in before the lunch rush - still some pasties left- although town was v.busy. Left c.1230, ran down to Bolt Tail. No sign of Mr. Treerat or others.

Came back along coast sighting several seals around Start Point. Start Bay was like millpond apart from the race. Stopped off at Mew Stone at low tide admiring the seals basking there, back into Torbay, then a blast over to Babbacombe as tide was too low to get on to berth, finally getting back to Brixham at 1550.

Steady cruising @22kts 4000rpm 65NM 49l of fuel 0.75L/NM.

MHB100 took some good photos, maybe he'll post some basking seals.

Wish I'd have seen your original post earlier!
I was out in the bay on Friday, then Dartmouth & Dittisham on Saturday, but spent today on my berth in Brixham cleaning her down. Would much rather have been out in company.

Well, we launched at Saltash and had a great trip down a very quiet river. The big grey things that were in had full bunting up for the Queens birthday and looked quite pretty.

Decided to go to Cawsand and see what was happening, lots of people, no chance of getting on the beach so had a picnic on a bouy (until we got told to move on as ' all mooring are private').

Rame Head was next to see the Millpond that was Whitsand Bay. Not sure if it was dolphins or Baskers (as there was loads of plankton) but they never re surfaced to be sure.

The Mewstone at Wembury was next, Bovi for a cup of tea was aborted due to too low a tide buy the yacht Haven is fine on lows so tea and waffles were munched.

A good play was had at Devils Point as the tide was thundering and giving loads of swirlies to play on before a good trip back up river to the slip way.

Pasty run on the 19th is my next Plymouth run as my next boating weeked will be Saltash on the 11th/ 12th.

7th Annual Plymouth Pasty Run
