Round Britain 2019 – Padstow to Falmouth

Round Britain 2019 – Padstow to Falmouth

This stage is a big one! Our crews rose early and readied themselves and their vessels for the overnight sail from Padstow to Falmouth, rounding Land’s End and Lizard Point on their way. Nestled on the south coast of Cornwall, Falmouth is famous for surfers and sailors alike, and boasts a deep natural harbour in the Fal estuary. It also happens to be an incredibly vibrant town with plenty to see and do.

Working in watches, our crews sailed through the night under the watchful eyes of our two skippers, keeping on course and on time as they ploughed on through the waves under the light of the moon.

The beauty of night sailing is obvious.

On arrival in Falmouth, our crews were greeted by the sights and sounds of a sea shanty festival, and you don’t get much more nautical than that! Given the exertions of the previous days, our crews enjoyed the festivities immensely, and then turned in for some much needed rest.
