On a sailing voyage we never use the word itinerary, as skippers will always be aiming for the best sailing and shore landings for the forecast and most idyllic or sheltered anchors and ports. They are as keen as you to include some of the highlights describe, but you have to go with Mother Nature, not fight her. The description below is based on what we think might be possible, based on past trips, or experience, but nothing is guaranteed on a sailing voyage. If the following voyage description is not fulfilled for any reason, Maybe Sailing and Maybe Sailing Youth Initiative cannot be held responsible.
Join us for a voyage of discovery as we explore the Isles of Scilly and discover some of the lovely coastal towns and anchorages that Cornwall has to offer.
We start our journey in the attractive market town of Penzance with plenty of shops and views along fantastic beaches to St Michael’s Mount.
The Isles of Scilly offer a certain quality of life – simpler, kinder and more peaceful. A quality long lost to many other parts of the UK. There are five inhabited islands – St Mary’s, Tresco, St Martin’s, Bryher and St Agnes, plus countless uninhabited ones to explore. Each Island has distinct characteristics. The Isles of Scilly also boast an incredible ancient history and archaeology, alongside sweeping sea views and rugged undeveloped coasts.
The Isles of Scilly lie squarely in the path of the Gulf Stream, creating a considerable improvement in the climate – surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and warmed by the North Atlantic Drift – Scilly has a milder climate than the mainland creating a haven for many types of flora and fauna. Migrating birds also rest here during their travels, making this an ideal spot for bird watching.
