Messing about in boats

Updated: Jun 30, 2023

‘There is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. In or out of 'em, it doesn't matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that's the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don't; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you're always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you've done it there's always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you'd much better not.’

Kenneth Grahame; Wind in the Willows

Our three voyages in July focus on the pleasures of slow travel and the serendipity of sailing. The tides, weather, guest sailing experience and personal preferences will all influence our passage plan. We will sail as much as we can around the beautiful South Devon and Cornwall coastlines, keeping our eyes peeled for the abundant wildlife.

We will berth in pretty historic ports, anchor in remote havens, explore the rivers deep into the countryside. We might swim off the boat, row ashore for a beach barbie or clifftop walk, find the local sailors pub or simply chill out on deck after a scrumptious dinner and watch the sunset.

This is a voyage about relaxation, de-stressing, connecting to the natural world, with time to read, paint, photograph, talk and share or simply do nothing at all, as advocated by Ratty; in short a real holiday! Simply get yourself here and we will organise the rest.
