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!
