We do the same if possible. Which highlights another problem, when I have parked up in the valley I bought a ticket for the trailer from the attendant by the slip. If you launch at 6am where do you get your ticket for the trailer, do the machines issue them now?

Apologys to the op for the high jacking of the thread.

Thanks for all the replies

Sounds like maylor might be more hassle than its worth. We have also been looking at the Helford river, is there any local campsites, pontoons and slips around there?

Sorry for the thread hijack Martin.

I wouldn't say Mylor is more hassle than it is worth, the facilities there are very good. Some of us are just wanted a rant over the changes there!

It would still be on my list as a base for a weeks boating if I was planning on Camping nearby. I think trailer parking is about 15 for a week and you can probably tie up for a little over 10 a night for a smal boat so you wouldn't have to launch every day.

Helford is another excellent option and moorings can be had for a week outside the Ferry Boat Inn from these folks

Moorings | Helford River Boats

I'm not sure about Camping in those parts but I expect Mollers will be along shortly to point you in the right direction.

Mark.

does anyone know of any pontoon / quays to use for the week in the area? Not so keen on a mooring if it can be avoided!

This is the cheapest pontoon berth in the area.


Falmouth Port - Yacht Haven

Only swinging moorings available on the Helford.

Nick (The Pilsbury Dough Boy) can do you a mooring and ferry you out to it using the Ferry.Helford River Boats | Boat Hire and Ferry on the Helford River

IMO, being based over here (Helford) would be tops.

Made the most of a break in the weather last Friday and launched from Mylor. Here is a couple of stills from the Gopro video just to prove Mylor is not always a nightmare. One showing the slip the other is heading over towards Porthhalow just past the Helford. Had a good blast and got back in just before the rain resumed!

Have a video of launching that I will put up if I can work out how.
