If anyone is coming down to Salcombe, get in touch and I'll see if we can meet up for a beer, cruise, BananaShark ride?


If anyone needs advice or help of any kind - if I can't help you I probably know who can!

I think it's going to be a good summer!

Haven't posted..

in ages! We spend two months in and around Salcombe/Kingsbridge each summer. This year no different. We arrive on July 8.. at the moment I have a blue Ribeye 5.8 (used to be Dave Hickman's) but am trading up. Work most mornings, launch in the afternoon. Usually, we then head off round to Thurlstone, returning in the evening (weather permitting, of course!). If anyone sees us, please shout!

Salcombe ribbing

Any suggestions for beaches/wildlife spotting etc within striking distance of mouth of estuary? Mill beach/Sunny cove is great but not much of a use of the boat! Are Blackpool sands approachable from sea? Also am hoping to get my mother (aged 76 with hip replacement) on board. Any experiences on feasibility (probably not wakeboarding)?

Elender Cove is a nice beach - it's Salcombe side of Prawle point and only accesable by land with difficulty, but good for anchoring and relatively quiet. Blackpool sands is steeply shelving, you have to go around Prawle and Start points to get there which can be bumpy - it's almost at Dartmouth, so it could be combined with a lunch / shopping trip as well though - it's about 15 miles by sea and a lot faster than by road in the summer if you're not in a blow boat of course!

Rob, you're avin' a giraffe ain't ya? Certainly not close in terms of falling out of your tent into the boat... If you're camping in the South Hams area, just choose the closest slip... Kingsbridge Quay, Salcombe (Batson Creeek), Southpool or South Sands. Checkout these slips on boatlaunch.co.uk

Camping? Maybe http://www.higherrew.co.uk or http://www.oldcotmorefarm.co.uk or http://www.karrageen.co.uk I reckon they are the nearest.
