Explore the Isles of Scilly

The Isles of Scilly lie just off the coast of Cornwall but they seem like a world away. There are five inhabited islands – St. Mary’s, Tresco, St. Martin’s, Bryher and St. Agnes – and countless uninhabited islands to explore. Not only is the entire Isles of Scilly an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but 2,200 people are lucky enough to call it home.

Cornish Sailing Locations

With 1 or 2 stops on the outward and homeward bound legs, you have the opportunity to visit some of these locations:

Fowey – A favourite our ours, with records dating back to the 11th century. Take a look at this youtube video.

Falmouth – A large, pretty town with beaches, and dripping in history.

Helford River –  A delightful, unspoilt estuary stretching from the outer edge of Falmouth Bay up to the old port of Gweek.

Newlyn – The most westerly we can go before the Isles of Scilly.

Isles of Scilly Destinations

The usual mooring is at New Grimsby Sound which gives easy access to Tresco, Bryher and the ferry transport to explore the rest of the islands.

Tresco – from dramatic rocky outcrops, bronze age burial sites and romantic castle ruins, to secluded sandy beaches and, of course, the world-famous Tresco Abbey Garden which was established in the 1830s by Augustus Smith. See the video.

Bryher – an island of dramatic contrast, being rocky on one side with beaches on the other. Dinner at the renowned Hell Bay Hotel is a welcome touch of comfort after a long sail.

St Mary’s –  the largest island with a population of 1,800. Hugh Town, the capital, has plenty of shops, banks, churches, cafés, galleries, restaurants and pubs as well as the wonderful museum.

“Getting to the Isles of Scilly and back from Plymouth in October was always going to be a tall order, even for our party of 3 experienced sailors, but with Nick and his modern and spotless Sun Odyssey 409, we made it. Nick laid on ideal sailing conditions and was a great skipper throughout, combining excellent humour with skilled pilotage and passage planning. Great backup from Katie in the office. Thoroughly recommended!”
