Enjoy a week’s summer sailing aboard classic yacht Escape as she explores the south coast of Cornwall and Devon on her way back to the beautiful Dartmouth.
Join classic yacht Escape in the picturesque Cornish harbour of Falmouth as she sets sail along the south coast of Cornwall towards Dartmouth. Explore the nearby Roseland Peninsular, stopping to wander around St Mawes or relaxing by hidden coves and sheltered beaches just beyond the St Anthony headland. Escape will then make her way to the historic town of Fowey, passing the iconic harbour of Charlestown where hit TV series Poldark is filmed. Anchoring in the Fowey Estuary overnight you’ll be able to enjoy warm summer nights eating onboard and visiting some of the great pubs on the quayside.
Over the next few days, Escape will keep heading further north onto Plymouth, stopping to explore the Salcombe before rounding Start Point and onto the beautiful stretch of English coastline that is Blackpool and Slapton Sands.
Arriving back to the Dart River mouth you’ll pass Dartmouth Castle before mooring up in the heart of Dartmouth marina, where you can spend some time enjoying this waterside location with its rich maritime history, shops and restaurants before your journey home.

Guest berths: 6 Rig: Gaff Yawl
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 the Devon to Cornish coast, over to the Isles of Scilly and even across the channel to France! 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!
Andy, his partner Tash and his crew will give you a totally relaxed holiday experience but if and when you do want to be involved, they are more than happy to share their knowledge and show you the ropes!More about Escape
