Some of the organisers also came over in their own ribs from Cumbrae where they lived in the little Town (which name I forget)
The only "town" on Gt Cumbrae is Millport. From the original question I suspect this is a little out of the way - but might be of interest to anyone who is planning to make a longer trip for the proposed RibNet Conference at Inverkip.

Buddy,

I know the Beach House very well, great house and has running mooring so no worries about the tide...one problem is all the pubs are on the otherside of the estuary so if the weather is really turd then you are buggered!

However great place to hire out and you'll have a ball, plus if the tide is right you can hoon up the estuary to the local nightclub in Kingsbridge and get on the lash and then hoon back, just make sure you miss the mudflats on the way home!

That part of the world is very much Cookee's stamping ground so he may be able to advise you..... otherwise use Coast & country cottages based in Salcombe they have some property with moorings but most are tidal including the Salcombe

Surely the mud flats would be easy to see?

Not at 3am in the morning with a million bottles of alcopop inside you! A certain RN navigator will confirm this - he was at the helm at the time!!!

I own a house at Island Harbour on the I.O W with its own 30" mooring outside the front door. It is a locked harbour with access for a rib 3hr +- hight water. We rent this out as a holliday cottage and would only be to pleased to have a chat with you

Come to Scotland

Look at the site
http://www.obanseilfarm.com

Ask for Nick Hunter

Situated 12 miles south of Oban, the area has huge ribbing potential.

Local RIB operators are Sea.fari Adventures (Oban) website www.seafari.co.uk

I have in mind somewhere near to an sizeable area of water that we can explore over a week, like the Helford river etc.

Has anyone got any ideas?
Jeremy, I can offer an apartment and mooring in the South Of France.
If you can cope with the drive the boating and weather in the med is fatastic!

Hi, Anywhere in Helford village. If you walk through the pub (Shipwrights) carpark and continue to the end of the path there is a pontoon for public use (2 in an honesty box). It is a stunning location, the pontoon is OK at all tides and the walk from the end of the village to the pontoon is max 200m. If you could find a place near the pub it's a 50-60m walk. This area is not cheap. Tim Rice has a place above the pub on the hill and Roger Taylor (Queen drummer) has a stunning spread on the opposite side of the river.
