AR20-08 Cornwall-Guernsey Milebuilder


Head beyond sight of land as we sail across the English Channel from Cornwall to St Peter Port in the Channel Islands.

Adventure Summary

Join us aboard the Amelie Rose as we set sail from Falmouth Harbour across the English Channel to St Peter Port in Guernsey. It’s over 110 miles in a straight line and we’ll be covering that in three days so this is a great chance to pile on a few miles and learn to navigate away from the sight of land under the watchful eye of a professional Skipper/Instructor.

You don’t have to be learning to sail though – it’s also a great way to experience offshore sailing and to get the feel of a longer voyage or even just to have the chance to see two historic channel ports with a bit of sailing thrown in too!

 

Itinerary

You’ll be joining us in Falmouth on the Thursday night. We normally meet up to enjoy a meal at the Chain Locker & Shipwrights – a bit of a local institution and known to Team Topsail as “The Falmouth Office”.

With food and introductions complete we’ll move to the boat where you’ll find yourself a bunk, stow your gear and have a look around. Before we head to our bunks we’ll have a chat about plans for the passage ahead.

The exact route will depend on the tides and weather but typically we either sail a direct route to Guernsey (which may give us time to spend a day on Sark or Herm) or run along the South Coast to Salcombe and cross from there. We aim to in St Peter Port as early as possible on the Sunday but you can stay aboard until 0800hrs on the Monday morning if this makes your travel back easier.
