The first International Cape Cutter 19 Week will be held in Cornwall for Spring Bank Holiday, commencing on Saturday 24th May. Based at Mylor Yacht Harbour, we’ll be at the heart of the fabulous Carrick Roads, with easy sailing access to Falmouth, St Mawes, Restronguet, Malpass and Truro. These sailing waters are some of the best protected in the UK, and, being Cornwall, there is plenty to do both on and off the water.
Mylor is just less than 100 miles west of Exeter, most of which is on dual carriageways. We’ve block booked a section of the visitor pontoon at Mylor Yacht Harbour, where the facilities are of ‘five star’ quality. There are two good launch ramps, and it’s possible to get lifted in if you prefer. The harbour is well protected from anything other than a stiff easterly, and it really is a special place with a small boat. Our friends with Cornish Shrimpers regularly visit this area.
Plans for the week remain fluid at this stage, but will likely revolve around day sails to the beautiful anchorages and harbours dotted around the Carrick Roads and Truro River. For evening entertainment we are working with Mylor Yacht Club to arrange something suitable. Their spectacular club house is a stone’s throw from the pontoons, as are the immaculate bathroom and laundry facilities.
Mylor lies between Truro and Falmouth, and is a couple of miles from Penryn. There is a well stocked chandlery on site, and you can get anything you need for sailing from Penryn and Falmouth.
We already have 5 interested parties, but we really need to know as soon as possible what level of interest there is. Come an meet up with other Cape Cutter 19 onwers, and enjoy this jewel of a sailing location. Please use the contact form on the main menu to let us know if you plan to join us.
If you don’t want to live afloat there are many places to rent for the week. Mylor Yacht Harbour has some superb apartments, from four to eight beds. If you wish to stay on land we would recommend that you start looking for somewhere pretty soon.
