We had a week away in Devon and Cornwall and came across Cornish Day Sailing on an internet search so booked it up and looked forward to the day. It certainly didn’t disappoint. Great safety briefing, good company and skipper Andy and Meghan were great hosts. It was as hands on as you wanted it to be so we all got stuck in and helped crew the boat! Lunch was amazing to include the mackerel we caught whilst sailing. I would highly recommend this full day out to anyone.

Together with nine of my family members, we had the privilege to spend a day on skipper Andy’s yacht, Olympus. We sailed around Falmouth bay from Falmouth to the Helford estuary and then back home. Our party was made up of four adults, four boys aged 11-13 and one 5 month old baby! From the moment we climbed aboard, Andy, with the help of first mate Megan, made sure that we were comfortable. As we went through the thorough safety briefing we were offered coffee and tea before we set sail. The boys took turns to help sail by either manning the helm, doing the winch or putting up the sails and both Andy and Megan gave them great instruction. For lunch we moored in a sheltered cove at the mouth of the Helford River, where most of us jumped in for a swim before eating a delicious goument ‘deli’ lunch (prepared by Andy, who is also a chef). More swimming after lunch before setting sail to go home. We were lucky that the conditions were ideal for sailing and it was a brilliant way to spend a day whilst also relaxing too. Once we arrived back in Falmouth, just to round things off we were severed a generous Cornish cream tea too! All in all a great way to spend quality time with the family where you could do as much or as little as you pleased, being taken care of by a very hospitable skipper and his mate! Would give six stars if I could.

Andy was a perfect host for the day. We were celebrating a birthday with family and friends and it was a brilliant day. The weather was challenging when we set out but it just didn’t matter. It was such good fun, and when the weather improved it was perfect. The food was great and everything was well organised. Safety was always put first, but never impacted on the enjoyment of the day. Thank you Andy - if we could give you 6 stars we would! 😍

Nine members of the family had a great day out with Andy and Meaghan who were were both very professional and showed great attention to detail Andy had us all in stitches as well as answering everybodies questions about sailing and he and Meaghan did a great job making sure we had a good trip. We all got a chance to steer the boat and help with the rigging. The food was fantastic (especially lunch). I highly recommend a trip with Cornish day sailing.
