Here’s what we’re planning for the rest of the season: email the skipper, Paul, if you’re interested to come.
30 August – 1 September Charlestown Harbour Festival
A new venture being launched after the 18th century copper port, famous as a film location for films and TV dramas including Poldark, was bought last year by Rolf Munding, an old friend of Tim Smit, the entrepreneur who created the Eden Project and who owns the nearby Shipwreck Museum.
Organisers plan a parade of sail with boats including Anny, Grayhound, Tectona, Kajsamoor, Our Daddy and Ibis. Music will be headlined by ‘Mad Dog Mcrea’ – “a unique mixture of folk rock, pop, gypsy jazz and folk”.
Boats will be open to visitors on Saturday and Sunday from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
Join the boat in Plymouth on Wednesday 28 August to sail to Fowey on Thursday 29 and lock into Charlestown on the evening high tide on Friday 30. Return to Plymouth on Monday 2 September.
