  • Voyage No. 1406

  • Falmouth – Falmouth

    On this Coastal Exploration we sail along the diverse and beautiful coastline of Cornwall also known as the English Riviera. As we sail through the day you will be involved in most aspects of navigating the ship while enjoying the natural wonders and viewing picturesque fishing villages from a unique perspective. We find anchorages and explore inlets and harbours in our rowing gigs. Nights are spent at anchor in beautiful calm bays while enjoying delicious local food with a glass of wine or a beer.

    This is a perfect sailing voyage for who want to learn about sailing a Cornish Lugger from 1776. The direction of the wind and tide will dictate which way we head. Making sure we get the best possible sailing conditions to sail Grayhound to her fullest potential, just like in the old days.

    We set sail from Falmouth and tack out between Pendennis Castle and St Mawes Castle. As we pass St Anthonys head we will know whether the winds will bring us up or down the coast. If we head up we will discover Place Creek beyond St Mawes and pass the highest point of the coast, Dodman Point. Past it we reach the historic clay harbour of Charlestown, drop anchor, row ashore and do some sightseeing. We might visit the the historic port of Fowey, which also happens to be the official homeport of Grayhound! Just beyond are the beautiful National Trust beaches where we drop anchor for the night. Next day we reach the old smugglers town of Polperro. If we arrive in Plymouth we achor up in the small village of Cawsand where the original Grayhound was built in 1776. Our return along this beautiful stretch of coast offers much more and we will be busy enjoying the richness of nature.

    If we head down the coast we could start with a calm crusie up the peaceful Helford river. Further down the coast we reach the lighthouse Lizard (Britain’s most southerly point!). The Mounts Bay awaits us with the rough and beautiful touch of the Atlantic. Grayhound will get a warm welcome once we drop anchor by the old smuggler town of Penzance. The neighbouring town Mousehole is also worth a visit. Heading back to Falmouth we will have more time to feel the winds of the “Mor Kurnow” (Cornish for English Channel) as she fills the sails of Grayhound.

    Either way the wind takes us you will feel the wings of history flap around your ears as the we beat along the dramatic coastal waters of Cornwall in replica of a proper Cornish lugger from 1776, immersed in the beauty of nature.
