St Mawes

sailing

Water sports are a huge attraction for older children and adults alike. The thriving Sailing Club organises sailing lessons for children and also weekend adventures on a real Cornish tall ship (must be booked well in advance). The St Mawes Regatta in August sets the village abuzz and is part of the world-famous Falmouth Week. Boats of all shapes and sizes can be hired from Mylor Harbour across the bay and smaller boats and dinghies are available for hire a short distance up-river from St. Mawes –ideal for exploring hidden creeks and coves.

 

Wind surfing and other excitements such as ‘dough-nutting’ and ‘banana rides’ all add to the fun and if this is not enough, surfing on the North Coast of Cornwall is only an hour away by car!

 

There's still plenty to do on dry land, however...
