Crantock - Take 2?

Tue Jun 26, 2012 11:32 pm

Really gutted that the weather got in the way of a number of us travelling down to Crantock last weekend.

I gather that Sunday turned out to a really good day, so all those that made the effort were duly rewarded.

There has been some preliminary discussion about having a rerun later in the year, so just wanted to gauge interest in having another attempt later in the year.

Suggested date is the weekend of 1/2 September. No idea how this fits in with the tides, holiday season at Crantock, etc, but it's about as late in the year as I am willing to consider camping. ;)

Who's up for it?

Isn't that the last weekend before the schools go back? If so it's likely to be very busy.

Had a horrible though that might be the case.

Dieppe runs from the 8th-16th). Not sure whether that would impact many (or indeed any) potential Crantock attendees.

Can't do the 15th / 16th anyway for various reasons and my desire to camp any later than that rapidly dissipates! The 8th/9th is a possibility though.

Would this be a better date to go for (even if the tides aren't as good)?

Would be good to try and make this happen as no Bristol this year...

Ok. Only a week off and the long range forecast (which should never be believed ;)) looks OKish. Who's going?

Just realised, I have another commitment on the Saturday, so I'm going to have to count myself out. Bummer. :(
