Fowey

Because I am too lazy to find out myself, can anyone tell me how long it would take (the distance) from Fowey to Plymouth please?

Idle bar steward! I presume you mean by water, not road. About half an hour I reckon. Nice easy ride. When are going to Fowey?

About half the time it would take you to get to Lizard Point seeing as it is in the middle!! Alan P

Gee thanks Alan.
Mike, I am toying with the idea to blast across on Friday 9 May to spend the day with some friends - I believe it is a stunning spot - and then head to Plymouth late afternoon for THE BASH.

It's real neat. Moor up to one of two town pontoons on the left hand bank as you go in. No charge. Wander up the gangway and into the high street filled with pubs. One of my fave local runs with guests at lunchtime.

Enjoy...

Fowey

Its a great place Charles. Well worth a visit. It would be better to spend the weekend there and have a good look around.

Perhaps another cruise to organise

Let's think about it - Cruise to Fowey. I have just read the article in PBO all about the place and it looks marvellous.

So why didn't you ask me ???
The S/W Cruise goes to Fowey each year for it's lunchtime stop.
My mate Mike runs a small restaurant/outside eaterie called "Chuffers"-right by the Bodinnick Ferry, next to the town car park.
Go in tell him you are a mate of mine and he will probably ask you to settle my last bill there.

Seriously, Foweys a lovely place.

If I can tempt you to come on this years S/W Cruise, we will take you to lots of nice places, right. Lots!!

Oh, and by the way, from Mayflower Marina to Fowey bar is 22nmiles.

Thanks Brian. Forgot that this was your stomping ground. Probably take me 15 minutes... We have friends who run a Bar/Tavern next to the water somewhere there, so I thought I might catch up with them. I have not discounted the SW cruise, just wondering how I am going to fit everything in?

Fowey could also be quick cruise at the rib.net gathering. If alls well with the weather its about 30-40mins or 15 for Charles + 1 refuelling stop!

Just a thought.
