Cornish Day Sailing Trips in Falmouth

SAIL AROUND THE FAL ON OLYMPUS

We have now joined forces with the Cornish Day Sailing crew to offer our guests discounted rates on a unique sailing experience.

Leap aboard Olympus – a 47 foot cruising ketch for your complete day under sail. Olympus sails from mid-May until October, commencing on Monday 16th May for the 2016 season.

The skipper and team are aboard for your safety and comfort, so all you have to do is kick back, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery as you sail across Falmouth Bay and over to the Helford River. If you would like to get involved with the sailing, you will be able to take the helm, handle the ropes and hoist the sails under the guidance of the Olympus team.

A full Cornish deli lunch with homemade and local produce including Cornish crab will be prepared for you, as well as a traditional cream tea served in the afternoon and refreshments throughout the day.

The discounted ‘Daysail’ price is £67.50 for the full day from 9am to 4pm. The trip begins at North Quay in Falmouth town (approximately an 8 minutes walk from the hotel) or step aboard the Falmouth Watertaxi from our very own pontoons for the short trip across to meet the Cornish Day Sailing crew, tide permitting.

Please call Cornish Day Sailing themselves on 01326 212320 for more information or to check availability before booking directly with our reception team, to enjoy this special discount. We suggest you book early to avoid disappointment but there are often last minute places available, so please do call and enquire.

The crew also offer a Sunset Cruise for £40.50 per person (discounted rate) which begins at 6pm and finishes at 9pm.This sailing trip includes homemade canapés and a glass of Procescco – don’t forget your camera!
