Deep water at all states of the tide is rare on the North coast so I would always go for the South coast as it is a lot more accessible.

North coast can be great, the wildlife and cliffs are far sweeter than the South but launching is tidal, tolerated is lovely or horrible with nothing inbetween and some big areas with no where to run.

Don't forget Plymouth. Great estuary, lovely runs west or east, good land side options and good bad weather options.

Plymouth to Looe run planned for Easter if you're down then.
