Salcombe Harbour Ruining Salcombe once again!

<Rant>
Many thanks to Ribeye for sharing the link but for those that aren't fans on Facebook :

http://www.motorboatsmonthly.co.uk/n...ng-boat-owners

As I've said, I have nothing against the speed limit in the harbour but they keep pushing the speed limit further and further out to sea... We're going to be in France soon to go above 6 knots!

Of course none of this applies to Sailing boats either!

Salcombe always make me laugh, I was crew on a 20 meter motor training vessel this summer and after being put on a visitors bouy by the harbour master we were asked to move by a sailing type as were were in the way of thier race. As you can imagine we politely refused and then spent the next hour of wanton chaos with sailing boats cutting every where. I was in the RIB doing a shore run as was nearly hit twice whilst still being tied to the back of the ship with the boats trying to cut dangerously close accross our stern.

The joy of sailing!!!

I live in Salcombe and I hate where they have moved the speed limit to, but your link talks about two people who behaved in a way that needs prosecuting! I would hope that if I got rammed up the transom by a boat they would prosecute as well!

Does the 8kt harbour speed limit no longer start at a line running roughly NE from Great Eelstone to Portlemouth Down then?

It never used to be to Great Eelstone - it used to be further in than that, pretty much by Bar Lodge, but the current Harbour Master decided he would enforce the speed limit to the official Harbour limits.

It's the same at Dartmouth - DHNA keep pushing the limiout - it used to start at the Castle - it's now a mile further out pretty much at castle ledge bouy. In a sea as choppy as the Range it's a long time to be slamming about at 6kts - a speed Ribs aren't really designed for.

Sorry, forgot to add, speed limit apparantly does not apply to:
a) local fishing craft
b) grockle boats
c) RN craft
d) HMRC / Police on non urgent duties

Just leisure craft

Yeah I do agree with prosecuting the idiots and ramming people certainly falls into that category, to be perfectly honest I saw that as a secondary part to the article with a warning about the stricter limits but I can see where the confusion came in! Apologies

So what is this saying to you? To me it says that they don't want ribs or maybe pleasure craft down there. Have they given any reason ?
