I'm hoping to get there. I'll be sailing from Saltash.
I only know Lerryn from Google's satellite photo - It looks like there is access to the south bank road from between the old mill house going upstream past a slipway as far as the car park where there is also a causeway. Is that the best place to aim for?

Apart from myself and Alastair, who has already informed me, who else might be coming? Just so that I can give the pub some idea of numbers. Boats with lifting keels or minimal draught should be able to make it right up to the quay at Lerryn on the very top of the tide (19:00 hrs.) - but be sure you leave on time on Sunday morning; depth is about two feet over softish mud! (Or that was the case last time I was there, a couple of years ago.) Regards David
If you reply to this email, your message will be added to the discussion below:
Yes, it being a spring tide, it should be possible to get right up to the quay, which shows as car park on Google satellite image, and where there is also a slipway, or there are several points downstream from where you can access the footpath which follows the shoreline. Don't go upstream of the carpark; the causeway consists of stepping stones just submerged at HW! Regards David
Hello Matt - just to let you know that, despite weather forecast, at least 2, possibly 5, of us reckless old lags, will be at the Ship Inn, Lerryn, from about 19.00 hrs. tomorrow. Just in case you thought the rally might be off! Maybe you could let Dave know? Regards David
I've just had a chat to Dave, both he and Merri, and Rach and I, are looking forward to meeting you at The Ship tomorrow. We will decide tomorrow about boats/camping, but we will see you (all) there. Best wishes,
