You’ll be joining us in Falmouth on the Saturday 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 following day and the week ahead.
Depending on the times of the tides along the way we may have an early start or the morning may be fairly relaxed but either way we’ll eventually head out to sea, bound for somewhere along the Cornish or Devonian coast. The rest of the route will depend on the tides and weather but typical destinations include; Fowey, The Yealm, Plymouth & Cawsand Bay, Salcombe, Dartmouth, Weymouth, Worbarrow Bay, Poole & Studland Bay and Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight.
There may be some night-sailing involved and almost certainly a night or two at anchor as well as harbour visits. We’ll be aiming to be close to Beaulieu by Friday night (probably Studland Bay or Yarmouth). This will leave just a short hop to get you ashore in Beaulieu with plenty of time to head home.
