Take to the seas

Get the sailing buzz with a Cornish Blue Sailing experience, then invest in your very own British-made vessel from Cornish Crabbers!

We catch up with Cathy Millar from Cornish Crabbers and Cornish Blue Sailing, who tells us about these two fantastic, interconnected Cornish businesses.

Based in Mylor near Falmouth, Cornish Blue Sailing offers visitors the chance to experience life on deck on the south Cornish coast’s fine sailing waters. You can simply enjoy a day out on the water, or charter a boat for a short break, and it’s entirely up to you whether you choose to hire a skipper or not (although if you haven’t much sailing experience, it does come highly recommended).

“you’ll explore secret coves and creeks along the Carrick Roads and Helford estuary…”

Aboard one of the company’s newly built traditional Cornish Crabbers or Shrimpers, you’ll explore secret coves and creeks along the Carrick Roads and Helford estuary, before mooring up at one of the many historic inns and enjoying local seafood while soaking up the waterside views. For a skippered charter, you will plan your itinerary alongside Charter Manager, Mark Stacey, who will ensure you get the very best from your time on board. If required, he will also assist with the itinerary for those chartering ‘bareboat’, that is, without a skipper, showing them the areas best suited to the prevalent weather conditions.

Whether you simply wish to relax and soak up the sea views, or literally learn the ropes of sailing, no experience is necessary with Cornish Blue Sailing and with a skippered charter you’ll find yourself gently eased into the joys of this much-loved pastime, on a trip that’s tailored to your needs and wishes.

When your trip’s over, you may find yourself having developed a taste for life at sea. Cornish Blue Sailing is owned by Cornish Crabbers, a fantastic firm based in Rock on the north coast. Cornish Crabbers is known around the world as the leading builder of traditionally styled sailing yachts and motor launches. With exceptional build quality and unrivalled resale value, a Crabber or Shrimper from Cornish Crabbers is not only a pleasure to sail, but also a sensible investment for anybody looking to spend more time on the water. If you do decide to buy a new shrimper following your charter, Cornish Crabbers will refund your charter fee in full. You can’t say fairer than that!


All aboard!
