Cornwall & Isles of Scilly
Where better than to experience the rugged Cornish scenery than from the sturdy deck of a beautiful tall-ship?
Cornwall’s coastline is paramount to her rich history; tales of trade and smuggling intertwine themselves with the dramatic cliffs and sweeping sandy bays. When squinting through sunlight at the billowing white sails above, gulls wheeling and crying, it’s hard not to feel intrinsically linked with Cornish heritage.
VentureSail is based in Cornwall, and many of our ships call the county and its waters home – resulting in a wide range of vessels touring the stunning coastline and trips over to the Isles of Scilly during the summer months. Cornwall remains a popular destination for many of our vessels and features on many a sailing schedule so take a look at each vessel and see which takes your fancy.
The variety of life aboard
Learning the ropes of traditional sailing is a great challenge for sea-dogs and landlubbers alike. The rewards are simply breathtaking: being aboard a historic ship cascading over ocean-blue waves is a thrilling experience for all ages.
All your hard work pays off in other ways too, with visits to quaint harbours where you can sample delicious clotted cream ice cream and soak up the hustle and the bustle of a busy Cornish summer. Of course, if it all gets too much, you can sail away to any number of secluded coves and sandy beaches, accessible only by water, so tranquility is guaranteed.
Sheltered coves and starlit nights
Perhaps one of the best parts of staying on a classic ship in Cornwall are the still evenings, where the peaceful little coves in which the boats anchor become an astronomer’s dream. The star-studded sky seems infinite from the deck, where you can lie for as long as you like; observing comets, shooting stars, and the silvery moon, which often lights a shimmering path across the darkened waters. You’ll be swept away by the romance of Cornwall and its stark contrast to modern life.
All the ships in our fleet are very comfortable, offering you everything you need throughout your time on board. In Cornwall particularly, food forms an important part of life, both ashore and afloat. The crew endeavour to source local delicacies where possible, making sure you receive the superlative Cornish dining experience to ensure your stay is truly outstanding.
