We've been out to the River Exe Cafe quite a few times this year. It's closed from October to April 1st, but would definitely be up for meeting up over there next year. The Turf is well worth a visit too if you haven't been there yet - it has pontoon for several craft.
We really like it in Starcross - we live on the front so can keep an easy eye on our mooring from the house. Which is a especially useful considering the impending storm. I've had to leave the boat out there until next week, so will be keeping a close eye on it. All calm at the moment an if it remains SWesterly it shouldn't be too bad in the boats out there. Um, I hope that wasn't a Michael Fish moment!
I hope to be trailering mine in a few times over the winter, so hope to see you around. Or we can arrange to meet out at the cafe next year.
Have fun on the course and hope you get the 3rd person.
