I quick recce today shows that there is plenty of mud a Dittisham at low water!

Warfleet is as you say LT not so easy, and the best option is fairly clearly the ferry slip in Dartmouth, the only unknown being parking.

Anyone any great tips apart from taking chance on the road or the park and ride?

Always worth checking for a slot along the embankment, otherwise the Mayors carpark before opting for the P&R. If you're afloat and Mrs B is happy to look for a space you could pick her up from the South embankment - widens the parking opportunities a bit.

Hi LT,

Think we might have been tied up next to you at the quay in Dartmouth today.

Hope you had a good day on the water?

Hi Black,

Yes, I thought that might be your smart Bombard we tied up to this morning -nice looking boat - didn't see you either!

We had a really good day - launched at 0930, stuck noses out first thing - but very cold wind, then cup of coffee at the Dart Cafe, quick fly around Start Bay, back in for lunch & then shot up to Berry Head to meet my brother on his first voyage in his fibreglass thing with sticks and rags attached. This afternoon was great, on wind, some nice waves to play in and lots of sun - clocked up 40NM today, with 37.4kt top speed.

bit of fresh sole fro tea, then out for a beer That's a good day

How was your day?
LT

Sounds like a great day out.

We launched at the Ferry slip, no problem at all. Headed up the river to Cornworthy, at which point the kids were a little cold, so back down stream to tie up in Dartmouth - where we saw your cracking looking boat - we were all very jealous!

Sandwiches eaten overlooking the inner harbour, then a very expensive trip to D'art Gallery!

Pumping up the boat in on the playing field opposite the slipway was perfect, as the girls could play on the playground, while I boat bimbled.

We saw the most amazing house on the right hand side of the river past Noss Marina, with a hydraulic launching cradle for a 28ft (ish) launch and a large Cobra RIB at the end of the jetty - I need to start doing the lottery

Just finished Fish and Chips from Rockfish takeaway, which went down very well.
