Any boating off North Cornwall is not for the faint hearted.
I used to have a mooring for a hard boat(9m Taskforce) in Newquay Harbour and have also had experience launching ribs there, to be honest, it`s a bit of a nightmare unless you have a very able vehicle, the sand shelves very slowly inside the harbour and you have to go in a long way to get your boat off.
You can also launch at Padstow(copyright R.Stein) and across the otherside at Rock; I`m told that Rock has a slightly longer tidal window in which to launch than Padstow, approx 2-2.5hrs either side of HW.
Down at Hayle there is a hard but quite steep slipway which Ive seen Ribs up to 7m launched with a possible 3hrs either side of HW but I would not cut it as fine as this without some experience(!) Launching/Recovery is 12 there are some facilities during normal hours(toilet, freshwater etc) but they don`t like you loading the boat at the bottom of the slip for some bizarre reason, so be prepared for a little pedantry if you go there ever.
There is a sandbar to negotiate at the seaward end of the Hayle River which moves constantly and there is a dredging programme about to commence there shortly. I suggest you do a low-water recce and see where the channel currently lies before attempting to use the port, at HW +or -1.5hrs you can go in and out at will without worrying about the channel, at 2-2.5hrs you really need to have an idea where the channel is!
If none of this has put you off, the North Coat has much to offer but take care !!
Yo Simon! How's it going?

You can launch at Rock almost anytme except low springs, you used to be able to launch then but the sand is a little higher atm. I heard they were gonna start dredging Hayle this week, which will help a little.

Unless you've tried a Philps you can't comment. Portreath bakeries are OK, had a piece of carrot cake form there the other day that was as dry as cardboard.

Crantock Bakery pasties used to be good when they were made in Crantock by Bradshaws the Butcher, all went to pot when they expanded.

Dredging Hayle

Hi Mark
You`re everywhere, like the wind?
Yes dredging is about to commence at Hayle, and there is also a new Harbourmaster and according to my mate Rob he`s a breath of fresh air! We`ve had to move our boat(Razorbill a 9m taskforce for anyone not in the know) to allow a second dredger to come in, we now have temporary mooring next to Philps Pasty bakery(ooh the gravy!)
As for launching at Rock, I didn`t realise you had such a large window, i`d like to get out from there and dive the REWA one day, it`s a bit far to go from Hayle in Razorbill so I`d take the Rib up.
