South Coast Sailing
Fowey has been one of the more beautiful sailing locations in the world thanks to the wonderful natural landscapes. The south coast is particularly beautiful and exciting with beaches full of white sands with incredibly clear water.
What does Fowey offer that other destinations do not? It provides one of the most perfect starting points for everything sailing. You can take a rigging out for a day, sailing over the beautiful Helford River.
SailTime, the premiere sailing company near Fowey, has recently opened its doors in Cornwall within the borders of Falmouth. SailTime offers sailors many options to which someone may enjoy the sport of sailing. That is, of course, dependant on you and your lifestyle. The member trends currently are showing great successes the world over. They use a type of sailing called “fractional” which provides an easy way for someone to sail in pure luxury. You utilize a new yacht without the worries of insurance, maintenance or fees that a marina may charge you for the boats you own and place in dock.
Fractional Sailing offers many perks such as allowing the boat to be shared by 7 members with one being an “owner”. It’s like a timeshare but with boats. According to SailTime you are guaranteed to (and not restricted) to at least two weekends to sails and five weekday or night sails each month. Members are also able to take advantage of unlimited uses based on a 24-hour notice and availability.
Members get to sail the beautiful harbor using a beautiful yacht. This gives you a time and an opportunity to socialize with other like-minded souls in the community. SailTime uses some of the best yachts on the market today such as “Beneteau Oceanis” 343 which was recently introduced.
A new vessel among SailTime’s elite is the Lamorna, a 343 which is now being used by the company’s members. The 343 had the opportunity to add an optional keel fitting which allows it to be enjoyed in open water while sailing but by lifting up the keel you can head out down the Falmouth River creeks. You can drop anchor and rest and have yourself a beautiful picnic with natural, photograph-worthy scenery inches away from you. This new keel gives you easy access to a wide variety of sailing options that were, until now, unavailable to standard yachts.
Many people take their time for granted. Now you don’t have to as it is very relatively inexpensive to enjoy all of these options that available in Fowey. The yacht can be taken out into open water so you can deep sea fish or to have a lovely lunch. Likfe really is too short to just sit home and do nothing when you can just get outside and fish, sail and partake in the beautiful surroundings that Fowey has to offer.
