2014 Plymouth to Looe Pasty run

All

Last years run was binned due to the weather but hopefully this year the wind will be nice and we can get a sweet little run in. I've been given a day pass for Good Friday - the 18th April.

My intention would be to launch and meet at Plymouth Breakwater fort where we can then all run round into Whitsand Bay then over to Looe.

I believe high tide will be around 1400 (best guess as I don't have the tide book yet) So would look to leave at 11.30 ish. We should be able to get a visitors spot for an hour whilst we partake in a pasty (various flavors available) and a cup of tea at Black Dog

If anyone can update the actual high tide time that'll be great - any other thoughts or takers??

And if it carries on raining you'll be able to moor up right outside the pasty shop!

Optimist - still if it carries on they may be lots of new potential launch sites!

I'm probably up for this - where are you thinking of launching from?

I'll go in at Oreston or Saltash bridge - both are easy to use and free.

Trade off for me is I have to pay to go over the bridge for Oreston but there is no 15 minutes trundle through the dock yard.

Provisionally I'm game, subject to the availability of myself and a suitable boat at the time.

Unless I'm reading my tide tables wrong, it looks like HW Looe is at 0827 and 2041 on 18th April (17th is peak springs, so large range still on 18th). You'd need to be looking at the following weekend to get a HW close to midday.

you can tie up on the side of the slip, if no one else is there, there are a couple of steel rings to tie to.

That'll bugger the Friday if that's the right time - I asked Google which is where the original time came from

The Monday would work though - and I know I can swap my pass. That'll be 1130 hw ish so fine for a pasty at 1230 ish still?

Don't quote me though - I'm probably one of the least experienced in here, but I was lucky enough to get a new Reeds Almanac for Christmas!

Now I just need to save up for one of those bouncy things with a big engine.....

Until I get my little yellow book I'm lost and Santa didn't arrive with it

Easter Friday or Monday I can play - will the tides let us? Looe is tidal but access is ok up to 2 hours or so either side of HW.

HELP...........................
