'Alva' joins 'Cornish Day Sailing'

File 2140Enjoy the delight of our Cornish 'Daysail' aboard a classic wooden boat.

'Alva' is a newly built, gaff rigged cutter whose elegant design is based on that of the old 'Falmouth Quay Punts' that were used to supply the Tall Ships at anchor in the bay. You can get hands on with the sailing or just sit back and enjoy the view!

Beautiful 'Alva' was hand-built here in Cornwall by her owner Ben Harris. In fact (if you are lucky!!) you might catch Ben skippering on occasions during the summer! He will be only too delighted to run through the extensive processes involved in bringing his dream to life, from choosing the perfect trees to steaming her oak frame to fitting her final bronze and copper finishings. She really is a beauty to behold!

Full Daysail's will include a picnic version of Andy's amazing Cornish Deli Lunch with fresh Cornish crab sandwiches, homemade salads and a selection of deli meats and local cheeses.

Cornish Cream Tea will be served later in the afternoon at anchor in the bay.

Shorter 3 hour trips are also available if you just fancy a taste of Falmouth's seafaring past!
