Eddystone lighthouse

Has anyone been out to the Eddystone lighthouse which is c13m from Plymouth? - if so where is the best place to launch, I'm guessing Plymouth or is there a better alternative?

Cheers
Mark

I've launched Plymouth each time we've been. Looe is also an option but restricted tidal slipway I think.

Dartmouth / Salcombe / Brixham will also be an option, depends how long a run you fancy?

If you're coming down the M5 might as well go to Plymouth for ease and shortish run.

Hi, when are you thinking of going as I would be happy to tag along? Is this the making of an adventure cruise?

There are also lots of free launch sites with free parking in Plymouth. 👍

Depending on when you go could well be up for joining in.

Had a great run from Plymouth to Looe earlier in the year - 2014 Plymouth to Looe Pasty run

and always looking for new options.

I've done it from Fowey a few times.

Don't go anywhere near it alone-you need someone in the bow spotting rocks. For that reason as well, if you're very curious and want to get closer, don't go anywhere near it unless it's flat calm!
