Six day sailing trip: Sail down the English Channel along the fabulous West Country Coast, past Weymouth, Dartmouth, Plymouth and Fowey to Falmouth, before heading offshore to the Scillies. Combine adventure at sea with an opportunity to explore St Mary’s and Tresco.
After our full safety briefing and introduction to the boat, we will set off from the Solent to sail West down channel giving you the chance to experience sailing out of sight of land. After a night passage, operating under a crew watch system, we will arrive in Falmouth in time for a well deserved breakfast!
From Falmouth we will head offshore around the Lizard to the Scillies, sailing over to St Mary’s, and over to Tresco before our return crossing later in the week. Plenty sailing, and plenty time to explore these stunning islands ashore.
This is an adventurous sailing trip, on an offshore race prepared yacht – so be prepared for some fast and exciting sailing…

SAILING MILES – c. 450nm
An offshore race prepared Beneteau First 40.7, the most successful cruiser racer ever built. Complete with race and delivery sails and several spinnakers, the boat is fast, safe and easily sailed. Down below, we have all (most) mod cons and is very comfortable. We sail with two watches, so there is always an opportunity to get involved and when you are off watch – soak in the experience, sit back and enjoy the ride!
