On the subject of spring, but of a different variety, this weekend the tides are closer to springs than neaps, so low water early afternoon.
Subject to the weather on Sunday, Dad and I might leave on the last lock out of Portishead in the morning and head down-channel for a few hours.
Not too far, not much further than NW Elbow I shouldn't think. We'll want to get back as soon as possible after the tide turns.
Would be nice to get a few hours sailing in, however.
