West Country Cruise

July 14 - July 21


This cruise can start with the Portland Weekend (see Portland Marine Cruise for more details) Friday 12th – Sunday 14th July 2023 (3 nights). Or sail direct to Torquay on the Sunday to join the cruise.

Torquay is our second stop over where we will be berthing together on the visitors pontoon in the MDL marina. The marina is at the bottom of the town where there are many shops, restaurants and interesting places within easy walking distance. You also have the harbour area with lots of galleries, eateries and interesting places too. In the past we have booked a meal at the Torquay Yacht Club just up the hill from the harbour oposite the Living Coasts Aviary. At the Aviary you can walk around the penguin area looking at the different species. They were happy in their habitats. They are in a very large kind of enclosure where they are free to go wherever they want. A few walk among the visitors. There were other types of birds at this attraction which were free to fly around. There were also otters, seals, fish, sea horses and bugs to look at. Confirmed booked dates:

Sunday 14th to Tuesday 16th July (2 nights)

Plymouth 3rd call where we will be berthing in the Queen Anne Battery Marina under Plymouth Hoe, where there is the Waypoint Bar and Bistro on site with a good menu if you dont fancy wandering off too far on your first evening. The Barbican is only a short walk from the marina with all it’s marvellous shops, eateries and galleries if you fancy a walk after the sail down from Brixham. The Royal Western Yacht Club is right next door, and the Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club is a short walk across Sutton Harbour Lock, so you will be really spoilt for places to eat.  The city is within walking distance of the marina, and there’s the The National Marine Aquarium just outside the marina on the edge of Sutton Harbour. There is also some amazing historical and modern places to visit, so you won’t be bored with this venue. Confirmed booked dates:

Tuesday 16th to Friday 19th July (3 nights)
