Salcombe 2019

Hi guys,

I知 back - hopefully just about to get a Ribeye 650s

We have a weeks hols booked in Salcombe for regatta week, have booked a pad in town.

Any tips for on water boat mooring for a week?

Expect the waterways will be pretty manic so I am sure it will be an interesting weeks boating!

Any further tips greatly appreciated!

P.s boat will be kept at Hamble Point so keen to say hello to any fellow ribbers!

Ollie

I am at SDS and took my RIB to Salcombe by sea which is a good day trip. If you do this then the harbour master will fix you up with a deep water mooring at a competitive price. Alternatively if you trail your boat then you will need to book a mooring very soon and expect to may harbour fees on top of a higher mooring fee plus trailer storage fees.

Good luck,

Regards,

Iain.

Contact Dennis Hobday at Salcombe Sea School who has a number of grandfather rights moorings. Fantastic chap who will give you the best advice even if he can't help directly.

Thanks chaps - am considering taking it by sea but the weather has got to be spot on as I致e heard Lyme bay can be tricky if not.

Part of me is tempted to just take down my little rib with 25 on the back as it will be better for beach hopping etc but a squeeze with 6 of us if we want a relaxed trip down to kbridge etc and no chance of any further cruising - opinions welcome on this subject especially for regatta week!

The little rib could go in the dingy park and it痴 pretty old and tired so not to fussed with people jumping over it etc!

I guess it depends what you want to do whilst on holiday.

I find places like Dartmouth are really bad to be ribbing during regatta - no where to tie up, everywhere crowded - best time to escape to more open areas!

If you enjoy the buzz - which is great - I wouldn't bother with the rib - take the sib to pootle down to Portlemouth / South Sands etc..... if I had a 6.5m I'd want to be out of Salcombe and elsewhere there's room to have fun.

Just my opinion.

I agree with LT, regatta week at all the local haunts is manic. If you do get somewhere to tie the 6.5 up, be ready to raft up, and also be aware that there can be long waits for water taxis if you need to use them.

It can be great fun watching the comings and goings at the dingy parks though......
