About the event
Boarding will take place between 09:00 and 10:00 at the quayside at Long Marsh in Totnes. There is a pretty 25 minute riverside walk from the mainline station to the quayside or it is a short taxi ride. Long term parking available Immediately next to the quay. Following your safety briefing we will be serve a late light breakfast on board and there is time to get to know your fellow guests before we set off at 11:00 to cruise down the Dart.
Our exact itinerary is weather dependant. If the winds are light and north to west we may sail out into Start Bay and anchor for the night off Blackpool Sands or Hallsands. If there is a fair sailing wind we may venture as far as the Kingsbridge estuary. Strong winds or south to easterlies will require us to retreat to the Town Pontoon in Dartmouth for the night.
The following day will involve a trip out to the Bay or in search of dolphins of Berry Head and then a cruise up the river to anchor at Bow Creek for the night and a leisurely dinner on board.
The following morning we have time for a relaxed breakfast before we motor the final stretch up the Dart to Totnes to arrive at around 12:00, plenty of time to get back home in the afternoon. Snark will be heading back down the river for a couple of days at her base before the next adventure starts.
