Fowey

The Penpoll’s proximity to the lovely town of Fowey is a real bonus, and it is great fun to feel part of this community on holiday; as a sailor, shopper, walker or gallery goer. The charm is irresistible and it rubs off on us all.

Perhaps part of Fowey’s uniqueness and charm is that it remains a working harbour, with tug boats and pilot boats steering in and out of the harbour massive ships carrying English China Clay all over the world, whilst also hosting us all on holiday.

There is consequently non stop action to be seen on the water, as the china clay boats rest alongside the tall masts of visiting yachts, moored on their pontoons, and children learning to sail in their little dinghies.

Suddenly the lifeboat rushes out on emergency practice drills... it is all there to either observe or take part in.

  The pontoon at Albert Quay plays host to scores of children with crabbing lines and buckets, amongst the moored boats. Escapee crabs add to the excitement, as they make a bid for freedom!

During Regatta week, in August, things get really busy here and the days are packed with fun for all the family with crabbing competitions, raft races, carnival processions, spectacular firework displays and bands playing . And of course, for sailors of big and small boats, plenty of competitive racing. See www.foweyroyalregatta.co.uk 
For more information about the regatta.

The Fowey Estuary has been immortalised by writers such as Daphne du Maurier and Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, and a mecca for artists. See www.fowey.co.uk  for more information.
