Never found them particularly helpful for requests that aren't on their price list.

Had a chat today with a nice lady at Blackness. They do a day rate for self launch / recover and car / trailer parking for 15. What she also suggested was that if you are these for several days you can launch there and leave the boat on a mooring at Dartmouth or Dittisham. Apparently there are water taxis that can take you out to your boat. Storage for only the trailer is 2.50 per day.

Thank for all the advice here, and I will follow up on the accommodation suggestions.

Anyone else in that area during that week?

Funny you should say that as I spoke to the same nice lady this afternoon too! We chatted about the rates and she is hopefully getting back to me via email to see if they can offer something....

You should be able to keep the boat on the South pontoon by DYC and walk ashore. Saves endless water taxis. Alternstively there is a large small boat pontoon on the north embankment but this dries c 1hour around low water.

Who do you ask for permission at DYC? Do they charge? Is it all states of the tide?

The pontoon is a dartharbour pontooon - give them a call on ch11 or drop into the harbour office. DYC welcomes guests and has good beer. South pontoon is deep water.

Looks like a good option. Just got to find a place to park the trailer. Maybe Darthaven, but I guess it would mean the ferry.

As ribraff says you should be able to park the trailer in Coronation Park for a few days not sure what the cost would be.

Booked a B&B for 3 nights from 28/6, aiming to launch at the higher ferry, and keep it on a pontoon. Car parking is at the B&B, and we should be able to walk down to the boat :-)

The website says Coronation Park parking is only open during regatta week, so I'll call the council on Monday and see if this is true.
