The waters around Plymouth are varied and offer many great sailing grounds. Many of the areas we cruise to are just a short day sail away.
Tucked just inside the mouth of the River Yealm, this secluded spot is a perfect swimming destination in settled weather.
Deep keeled boats will need to check tide-tables and be aware of the sandbar in the river entrance, but this really is an ideal spot for a picnic. On a rising tide, it's great to follow a stop here with a meander up the creek at Noss Mayo, where you can tie up alongside the pub at high water and sample the delights of these pretty twin villages.
Fowey and Fowey River
FoweyFlanked by steep hills, the entrance to Fowey harbour is truly stunning. Fowey town is a hugely popular sailing town and is full of pubs, shops and restaurants. There is ample mooring available and a water taxi operates during the summer months.
It is well worth navigating up Fowey River if you have the time. The water stays deep through most of the tide and you can follow the river for several miles to Golant and the beautiful Lerryn River.
