If you are lucky enough to own a boat, or have a friend with a boat, then St Mawes is a boating paradise. We hitched a ride on our friends Finnmaster and headed out over Falmouth Bay to the Helford River Sailing Club for dinner. (Note: anyone can eat there – you don’t have to be a sailing club member). What a treat – the sea was like glass and we streaked over the bay remembering to slow down in just time to keep to the speed limits in the estuary.
The tide was very low so we couldn’t access the sailing club pontoon. Instead we disembarked on the small ferry jetty at Helford point. We had a lovely walk through the village – admired the newly completed holiday let units at the Shipwright Arms (note to self – must explore those soon. They look fabulous).Then we crossed the little ford and headed to the sailing club.
There was space on the balcony with its incredible panoramic views.
The food was delicious as always – shout out for the Belly Pork and Fish Burgers. Scrumpy on tap. Great company. What more could you wish for.
The tide had come in by the time we left so we headed for the pontoon and back to the boat for the trip back to St Mawes.
