ADAM GUSTAFSSON:

''St Johns Lake is a sheltered spot at Torpoint, There are two courses, An East Facing course and a North Facing Course. (From the Bank you sail along)
The East Facing Course Works from SSW to W and is generally gusty and shallow, although you can get a 500m run in. The North Course is mirror flat and has a slight kink at the west end. Allowing a slight more variety in wind angle. The North Course is shorter but the better run.
Both courses are extremely sheltered from the wind and realistically need a galeforce to get something sailable.
Wind Angles, North Course - WSW to SE. (SW best direction)
                     East Course SSW to WNW.
Best Speeds - Bob Cunnigham 41+ Knots. North Course''

BRYN DAMPNEY:

''The tide needs to be less than a 1.5m low or the north course doesn't reveal itself. Anything around or under 1m is ideal but the window is maybe an hour and a half either side of low tide tops.

The east course has a huge hole half way down due to the headland at the entrance to Millbrook Lake. If you can latch on to a gust through there however the wind accelerates out of Millbrook creek and you can get another good blast before getting to Mount Edgcumbe. If you do sail the east course be very sure you can get back otherwise you'll be up the side of a warship with the rate the tide moves in the main channel!''
