You’ll join 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 beds we’ll have a chat about plans for the following day and the week ahead.
Depending on the times of the tides we may have an early start or the morning may be fairly relaxed, but either way we’ll eventually head out of the Carrick Roads and thence to sea. The first day will likely see us bound for either Fowey or Cawsand Bay depending on the weather and tides. The rest of the route will be even more flexible but typical destinations include; The Yealm, Salcombe, Dartmouth, Portland, Studland Bay, Poole 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 in the Solent by Friday night (possibly in Yarmouth). This will leave just a short hop to get you ashore in Beaulieu with plenty of time to find your way home on Saturday.
