Anybody have any experience of sailing at the above ?

Was thinking of taking a long weekend out under canvas again, have been told that it's one of the windy'est inshore locations, but never sailed there myself.

Cheers, Richard

I've sailed there once - many, many years ago. I also have a friend who lives 2 1/2 miles from Stithians & sails there regularly. I'll see if I can get him to update the Stithians page on the website, which I put together sooooo many years ago.
It's an ill wind that never blows at all.

I tried to sail there once but couldn't find the way in! Many years ago too, pre -internet.

Was going to look for it again on one of our recent trips to Falmouth but never got around to it.....

My pleasure Richard!

Absoutely zero wind in Cornwall for the past 2 weeks, want to try out my 9.2! Maybe September will be better.
