Just got back from Cornwall. I thought the South East/Solent was good boating. Its nothing compared to the South West. Honestly, amazing.
I’ll quickly summarise what we did.
Arrived Thursday, Friday dry-parked the boat in Falmouth harbour office slipway. This is a place where you need to launch and recover the boat on your own each time. Its not that bad really, and does mean its easy to remove and get fuel if you wish. Its a perfect setup here, so have a proper pontoon, you can nearly do this without getting wet at all. Amazing!
Out into Falmouth Harbour. What are all these saily things ?! 😉
So after a quick couple of hours we returned to land and then came out again the following day. The weather was a bit rough and several times it tried to rain, but this time we headed up the River Fal towards Truro. This is AMAZING. Possibly the best boating scenery I’ve yet seens, its nearly make believe with the trees on each side hugging you as you go up river. Cautious though, even though we were well below river speed limits the locals don’t take kindly to ANY wash at all – sorry I can’t defy physics.
Where else in the South can you see stuff like this?
Technology is improving! Sat nav and radio + GPS logger. Still no depth finder however. Tut tut…
Then it started raining!!!
Like I said already however. If you have boat. Take it here you have no idea what your missing!!
Small cafe here its good so I hear.
Slowly going up river and Truro Cathedral comes into view!
The river stops here! There is a Tesco here as well. You can moor here if you are brave.
Some GPS stats
And back at base
So the final day was a little rough but we exploded some of the rocky areas around Falmouth and then headed up river to the famous Pandora Inn.
And that pretty much sums up this Cornish adventure!!
