You’ll be joining us in Falmouth on the Sunday 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.
The exact route will depend on weather and tides but we’ll probably aim to start by heading south from Falmouth to Roscoff and then run along the North Brittany coast from Morlaix, past les Sept Iles, Treguier and Lezardrieux to Paimpol, stopping along the way in the delightful towns and anchorages that dot this stunning coastline.
Upon leaving Paimpol we’ll be heading north and east probably via Guernsey and Sark before crossing back to the UK and along the stunning Devon and Cornish coasts to Falmouth. The route takes in much of the best coastline in the Western Channel as well as two channel crossings, and a great run along the West Country coastline.
We’ll be back Falmouth by late morning on Saturday, giving you plenty of time to make your way out of Cornwall.
