Typical....

It's the way it goes isn't it - 2 weeks of cracking weather & as soon as I get on holiday & the boat in the water it turns!!!

Fog Friday, grey with showers yesterday - at least the heavy rain waited until last night, then a strong southerly with squalls today!

After deciding it wasn't much fun in the Range in these conditions (we do always try it!) and there were some much larger craft pitching & corkscrewing all over the place, we ended up giving the pups their first experience of ringo-ing off Dittisham(!) at 6kts in the rain....To be fair they enjoyed it & still fell off!

Here's hoping the conditions pick up soon.

Yep, know what you mean.

Sat in the awning of the tent at the moment listening to the rain bouncing off the roof and wishing it would stop. Been here since Saturday and haven't launched the boat yet.

Did have a few good hours at Beesands yesterday afternoon, but went round by car.

You must be close, we're at Little Cotton at the top of the hill in Dartmouth.

Go and ave a look at hallsands the next bay along, they took all the shingle out of the sea there and destroyed the Eco of the area, first storm that came along took the church and most of the village off the beach, the rest is still there like a time warp, you could walk around it, not sure if you still can

Hi Biff

Hallsands is interesting.

I used to live at Beesands during the summer all the time I was growing up and still come back every year.

Start Bay is a great place that is my second home.

Might drop the Boys Bombard in the water later and go up river to explore some shallow bits the RIB can't get too.

Nasher.

Hi Nasher,
Good to hear from you - didn't realise you were down this year. I'll drop you a pm - would be good to meet up either on the water or off.
We're pretty close to you!

Bob
