RIBase
Mylor works great with some sheltered areas if there is wind or round to Falmouth - plenty of spaces to stay from tents to caravans and posh pods.

Torquay / Brixham gives you plenty of options as does Dartmouth.

Plymouth does too as will Weymouth / Portland.

We're doing the Solent this year, staying in the forest and running out of Lymington.

You cant beat Poole for a great base to explore from, you have access to Poole Harbour and can cruise the Jurrassic coast, chapmans pool, lulworth cover, durdle door, Weymouth, swanage plus the solent, isle of wight cowes, Yarmouth, Southampton, beaulieu river, lymington, etc etc and some great beaches at sandbanks, studland and shell bay etc.

Plenty of marinas, my suggestions would be give them a call and see if they do 'holiday berths or parks' Rockley Boat Park, Cobbs Quay, Parkstone Bay etc.

Rockley Caravan and static home park = Rockley Park Caravan Holiday Park | HavenĀ® Official Site

The boat park is on site down a small road, direct access to Poole Harbour

South Devon is good - from Brixham Dartmouth, Salcombe Teignmouth & Exmouth are all within reach plus some really good beaches. Also Torbay is relatively sheltered apart from Easterlies. Looads of stuff to do if the conditions aren't too good for boating

If you can nail the logistics, the Scilly Isles are magical when the weather is good. We base ourselves on Bryher, it's very well set up for the ribbing visitor.

The secret is in spotting or getting lucky with a weather window for the crossings out and back.
