Just to let you know you'll be down here for the best part of Falmouth Week. Even if you're not into the yachty stuff there will be a lot of shoreside events going on in and around town day and night.
Specifically the Red Arrows are scheduled to do an amazing display over the harbour (weather permitting) on Wed 10th August at 6.15pm prompt. Town gets packed, parking difficult, roads closed.
IMHO again, best to park at Mylor Harbour, 15 minute walk along coast path towards Flushing, walk up the hill to the field above Trefusis Point and enjoy the best view in the area.
If you're around earlier that afternoon pop in to the bar at Restronguet Sailing Club at Mylor. I'll sign you in and we can have a cheap beer.
Glad the prop was OK for you.

Yep, bowling green is good. I reckon a rib-raft party in the harbour pips it.

Campsite for Black...

There's a new campsite about a 2 miles from Helford Passage, just beyond Mawnan Smith village towards Falmouth. http://www.penwarnefarm.co.uk/

Thinking of doing what has been suggested, but will be camping in the area.

Any thoughts gratefully received.

You could contact Nick or Sarah at Helford River Boats and book a mooring for the week. toing and froing from Mylor on a daily basis in a 4.8m boat could get a little tedious.

The www.helford-river-boats.co.uk folks will not only launch for you but store your trailer if you like. By the time you've spent money on RIB petrol Mylor and back might as well use their launching service which they can do from all the way at the top of the (very tricky and narrow laned) hill. By the way, if you're using one of their moorings, they'll drop you off on it and pick you up (using the small passenger ferry) as often as you want within operating hours for free as part of the service.

Where are you based Coastguard?

If you have the use of a mooring, you could launch at Durgan. It's a bit cheeky, we chuck the SR in there quite regularly as it's the nearest slip to home. You can leave your trailer at my place for the week if it helps.
