Cornwall Sailing Short Break

This is a not-to-be-missed Cornwall Sailing Short Break taking in the Falmouth Classics Sailing Regatta and the Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival.

There is no better weekend to be in Falmouth than this one! Pilgrim will join hundreds of other classic boats which all gather in the fabulous setting of Falmouth Harbour for a maritime festival second-to-none. We’ll combine exhiliarating sailing trips with festival shenanigans to make this a summer weekend to remember.

Our sailing and anchorages won’t just include the splendour of Falmouth, Carrick Roads and St Mawes but we’ll also venture out around the stunning coastline probably taking in the Helforsd River and the Roseland and Lizard  Peninsulas.

However, the celebrations won’t ever be far away and you’ll also be able to participate in the Parade of Classic Sailing Vessels that is one of the highlights of the weekend.

All your freshly prepared meals, snacks and hot and cold drinks are included and our skipper and crew will be onhand to make sure that you have a great time!

What to Expect on your Cornwall Sailing Short Break:

We depart form and return to Falmouth Harbour and we’ll be moored at Pendennis Point Marina. That’s close to the point where Charles Darwin came ashore from HMS Beagle in 1836 to get the Royal mail coach to London!

You will be welcomed aboard with refreshments before the usual safety briefings and boat tour to allow you to settle in and find your way around. Once everyone is ready we will set sail and the adventure and excitement begins! To get a flavour of what this weerkend is like we suggest you check out the websites of the Falmouth Classics and the International Sea Shanty Festival
