Dartmouth

Thinking of taking our Bombard 380 with Yam 25 to Dartmouth by car this year...never done this before as used to boats too big to move by car! What nice things are there to do in that part of the world in a sib? Is there much to do up river if the weather is too bad to head outside? Thanks for help in advance.

You'll love it...(Although personaly I prefer Salcombe)Plenty to see and do.If its flatish its a great coast to explore either way you go! Plenty of Wildlife ect and nice scenery .With some good pubs and other things of interest up River if it Blows,I can recomend the Floating Restraunt, Great Sunday Lunch!Although you may have to Book at peak season. Plenty of fish off Hopes Nose..with Mackrel pretty much guaranteed for the kids,In fact with a SIB we used to stop there and have a BarbeeTorquay Marina for some Eye Candy,Plenty of shops for the Missus-Although (I'm Told) Salcome wins there again.The Harbour master can be a little 'Predantic' on accasion,TRY not to rise to it.
All in All a good location.

go a bit further round to Babbacombe and stop at the Carey Arms , it's a bit expensive for lunch but if the weather is good it's the best place in the world to stop

Launch on slip by upper ferry and head to Dittisham for a pint then up to Malsters arms at Tuckenhay near high tide, it doesn't get much better for a sib....

Up the river past Tuckenhay is Totnes. Bohemian town with interesting shops and some good pubs.

I did it the other way. Stayed at Totnes launching off free public slip and went down to and moored at Tuckenhay/Stoke Gabriel/Dittisham/Greenaway(Agatha Christies House)and Dartmouth.
