Over four days, sail classic yacht Escape to Falmouth, Cornwall. A fantastic way to view the south coast of Devon and Cornwall.
Climb aboard in Dartmouth and set the sails, heading out of the mouth of the River Dart and into open waters. The voyage will take you west along the English coast, passing Blackpool and Slapton Sands before reaching Salcombe and Plymouth. You might stop at any of these harbour towns, with time to go ashore and explore in the mornings and evenings. Leaving Plymouth, Escape will begin her journey down the Cornish coast – watch out for Poldark being filmed in Charlestown, and if you get the chance, be sure to go ashore in Fowey and wander through the narrow streets, steeped in history. As Escape sails past Mevagissey, she will be sailing around the Roseland Peninsula with its hidden coves and sheltered beaches – adored by locals, it’s not hard to see why. As you round St. Anthony Head, Escape will be greeted by not one but two Tudor castles guarding the entrance to Carrick Roads – here, you will manoeuvre the yacht through the busy port to a berth in the lively town of Falmouth.
Falmouth is well worth an explore any time of the year, however as this voyage ends, the internationally renowned Falmouth Classics will be arriving for a weekend of sailing and racing. Why not stay in Falmouth for the weekend’s festivities, or even join Escape’s next voyage which will see her out on the water acting as the perfect vantage point for those wanting to marvel and the traditional ships and classic boats – perhaps even getting in on the action herself!

Escape is a 43-foot wooden classic gaff yawl built in 1937 by Kristensen in Norway. She was originally designed by Colin Archer as a sailing lifeboat but was refined to make her slightly smaller and easier to sail by her owners. Today, her owner and skipper Andy sails his guests around the west country, from Escape’s home port of Dartmouth all the way down to the Isles of Scilly. She’s the perfect vessel for a family holiday or for a group of friends after something a little different – and with great food and drink included in the price, a voyage on Escape won’t be forgotten!
