High tide is 1440 and its around 4.9m. so low tide will be around 8.40am. The wind is supposed to be from west or north west force 3 or 4; the weather is 40% cloud cover but temps in afternoon of 22C. sea state will be smooth and visibility moderate.
So.......options - well heading up the Tamar is possible although when turning west into the Lynher - it will be directly into the wind! Lots of tacking then!
Alternatively, a sail out past Penlee point and around Rame Head is also an option - a more open coast passage and against the incoming tide but possible! Would make the wind come over the starboard side - close haul and broad reach for much of the way..........
I'll decide tomorrow. Either way, just being out on the water will be fun
