Likewise in Devon. Better to take a temp mooring (plenty of overnights available) and camp or b&b locally.

The campsite is on Loch Sunnart..a 19mile long sea loch which is sheltered. No major tide flows to worry about. It has great sea fishing and you can have a go at trying to catch a common skate..up to 200lb as they are in the loch in the deeper sandy bottom parts.

From Loch Sunnart..you can easily visit Tomermory and Mull..or go round the Ardnamuchan Point..which is the most westerly point on mainland uk..

Scenery is remote and breathtaking..only drawback is the Scottish Midge..they can eat you alive on a calm night

Resipole Holiday Park | Touring Park
+1 we had a brilliant weeks holiday staying at Resipole a couple of years back, excellent cruising to Tomermory etc, well worth the trip up

Well a Scotland trip is definitely on the list maybe post midge season! Though I'm guessing the west coast is not too bad?

Cornwall is fairly handy for me, as I'm N Dorset. I know my way round many of the windsurfing spots & generally plan take the boat, if its windy windsurf if its not take the boat out.

Rock & Lundy would be a nice area to explore subject to weather, know of a decent campsite just up the road from Daymer Bay, my fave windsurfing spot.

We have a number of camp sites around Bude - one of our favorite is Camping | Caravan | Devon - Noteworthy Caravan & Camping, Devon

Not a lot as far as facilities go but a great friendly site that is rib and pet friendly, kids play area and toilets etc.

You can then launch at Bude, tidal but a lovely run up to Lundy, plenty to see around Bude, Boscastle etc.

Port Gaverne has a camp / caravan site and a good beach launch at all tides - if you have a 4x4 or like pushing. Lundy will eb a fair run but Rock, Padstow become easy runs.

If the weather is grim Plymouth and all the options there is an hour away.

Other options are Porthkerris - they will launch you and can provide a bunk house and camping - Self Catering Accommodation & Camping at Porthkerris -

Pentewan Sands can also launch accross teh beach and has some well known accommodation options - Pentewan Sands Holiday Park - Caravan Holidays - Camping Cornwall

Being nosy which bit of North Dorset? I used to live Sherborne.
Hope it helps?
