Camping at Sharpham

There is a primitive campsite at Sharpham Point, half way up the navigable portion of the river Dart.

We joined the Ladies Afloat team at our Dartmouth headquarters.


It was a windy struggle through choppy water to reach the campsite. It turned out not to be truly primitive, since it was within range of a mobile phone mast.


On the other hand the steady drizzle reinforced the impression of tough remoteness.

Breakfast was a more cheerful affair, with steadily clearing sky.
