Queens Platinum 10th annual Pasty Run weekender;

2022 sees the tenth anniversary of the ever popular Pasty Run.

Back in 2002 it was then titled the Plymouth to Looe Pasty run, as the first few trips aimed at the Cornish town for its pasty - with mixed success!!

As the years went on the target town moved East and Salcombe was used, with the 9th trip heading back West, this time to Fowey.

For the tenth anniversary its time to do something a bit special, especially as the event falls on the Queen's Platinum Bank Holiday weekend.

So the tenth anniversary Pasty run will see those attending enjoying;

Friday 3rd June - 08.44 HW - 11.00 departure
Plymouth to Fowey, via the Eddystone lighthouse, to partake in one of the SWs best pasties. On the way back we'll pay homage to the port of Looe, the location of the first few pasty runs by stopping for tea & cake, floating just offshore, as it'll be low tide by the time we get there.

Saturday 4th June - 09.19 HW 10.30 departure
Plymouth to Salcombe on the brownie run, the best brownie in the South West is to be found in the bakery, along with a superb Devon style pasty.

Sunday 5th June - 09.58 HW 10.30 departure
A longer trip for those that would like to cruise a bit farther. Plymouth to Dartmouth where we will partake it what is the best for crab sandwich ever.

The day will also be used as the back up for the fri /sat if the weather misbehaves.

All trips will be mid tide departures from the Breakwater Fort.

Have you checked the tides?

I'm up for this..will RV off Eddystone running down from Brixham.
Happy to coordinate a more Eastern Devon group making it a decent length run

Considering a Fri night stopover in Plymouth to ensure a) Treerat gets home safely and b) can find Salcombe on the Saturday (turn left past the breakwater).

If people want to make a weekend of it, I suggest booking accomodation / berths early

Not too guises about proper camp sites if there’s a marine that’s happy with me camping in the van.
Thanks

I'll be booking into Plymouth Yacht Haven with the rib, lots of people truck camp up behind after using the slip way at Mountbatten.

I know some others will be camping locally as there are a couple of simple and easy camp sites about.

Queens Ann Battery is an option, as is the Mayflower Marina, I can't believe all 3 will be full. The Mountbatten Centre itself has a locked pontoon that can be used too.

I know that PYH uses members spaces that have book out for the period as their main visitor berths, so it could be too early for them to know as well.

Just called MDL @ Queen Ann's, lovely lady very helpful and all booked in!
Thanks for the recommendation.

Hopefully we will be ok kipping in the car park, looks like there's some good company on the door step if we get bored!

Really friendly place. Squeezed me in last year when everywhere else was full. Decent restaurant on site as well.

There's a premier Inn just five minutes walk away if you want a bit more comfort.

Hi Pete,
I've booked Lunasea into QAB for the Fri night
Also booked 2 B&B rooms close to QAB (Travel Inn & Premier Inn full when I looked).
One of these rooms is a family room with 3 beds (all they had left). I can cancel free up to 28 May, so if like me you've had enough camping days, and like a little civilisation after day on the water, drop me a pm.

HI

It's the marinas, its a little early for some of them to know what the usual berth holders are up to that far ahead and most only have limited true visitor space.

I've booked a B & B for Friday too - I see a gin or four coming on.

Sadly I cannot make this, but it sounds great! We have launched at QAB before, and it is great, if not the cheapest option. Just be aware that they launch you with their tractor. They cannot launch / recover around low water, and they stop for lunch! Fine as long as you arrange around these.

I try not to launch at QAB, just use the pontoons over night. With free slipways and parking at Saltash and Mountbatten it seems wrong to pay the £33!!

Free parking in the top car park above the road rather than below the road towards the slip and centre - I know you know but for first time visitors they can be stung by Mountbatten centre for daily parking charges

Reckon they are likely to waive the launch fee if I'm booking berthing with them?

I wouldn't think so for a minute!

As RickW says launching at Mountbatten is free, parking in the public car park the other side of the access road is free (but Mountbatten don't tell you that).
You do have to pay to use the Mountbatten pontoon at all - even tying up whilst parking, or overnight.
