You’ll join us at Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River on Saturday evening, where you can enjoy a meal at the Master Builders Hotel and meet the other guest crew. 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 beds we’ll usually have a chat about the plan for the following day.
Depending on the times of the tides at Hurst Narrows and St Albans Head we may have an early start or the morning may be fairly relaxed, but either way we’ll eventually head downriver and out into the Western Solent. The first day will likely see us bound for either Yarmouth, Studland Bay or Weymouth depending on the weather and tides. The rest of the route will be even more flexible but typical destinations include; Dartmouth, Salcombe, The Yealm, Plymouth & Cawsand Bay, Fowey and the Helford River.
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 Falmouth by Friday night (possibly in the Helford River). This will leave just a short hop to get you ashore in Falmouth with plenty of time to extract yourself from Cornwall on Saturday.
