Brian,

Thanks for the support. I pin pointed Modbury, but I can't find Mayflower marina. Is it showed on the map ?

Thanks again,

I live in Portishead which is on the Bristol Channel

A new marina has recently been opened there (no slip-way - yet! ) and there is a new Travel Inn so it could make a good overnight stop for anybody - interested let me know and I'll get more details

Sorry Michael, Mayflower is too small to show up. It is roughly where the "P" of Plymouth is.

Bravo, THIS is a map for sailors.

By the way, are these waters available for swimming or not ?

There is more than 1 answer to your quetion Michael.
1. The water is very cold even in high summer
2. It is mainly a military harbour so it is very busy and therefore very dangerous to swim in most areas.
3. Some divers are allowed in certain areas but you should have full drysuits always.
4. The harbour is very deep in places with very strong and dangerous currents SO.....swimming, especially for you lucky people who are used to the Med. is pretty much a no no.
5. Having said all that some hardy souls do swim close to the shore in certain restricted places. Basically, they are mad.
