2020 SEA, SALTS AND SAIL CANCELLED

Following the outbreak of Covid-19 and in line with government guidelines, the committee of Sea, Salts & Sail has decided that this year’s festival will sadly be cancelled.

In these uncertain times, this is a decision that has not been taken lightly. We appreciate that there will be disappointment, however, we know that people will understand that maintaining public safety is paramount.

On behalf of the team here, we would like to say a huge thank you to all those amazing companies who have donated so generously towards the crew bags and to our Mousehole community, who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes. Finally, thank you to over fifty skippers who had signed up to date, from Dawn (12ft) to Pellew (68ft). It was proving to be the best yet!

We will keep you posted on the next festival dates. Thank you again for all your support and understanding.

DUE TO COVID-19, THIS YEAR’S FESTIVAL IS SADLY CANCELLED.

"Once upon a time you could look down on the channel between St. Clement's Island and Mousehole Harbour and see one of the largest Cornish fleets of luggers, heading out to their fishing grounds. Sea Salts and Sail will re-enact that scene as over forty traditional boats with similar tanned sails, leave the port, tacking back and forth inside and around the island. This festival really reveals Mousehole's close relationship with the sea. From kids paddling at low tide, sculling races, to the harbour packed full of historic vessels, it’s when the village really comes to life. It will be a very nostalgic scene whether you are a spectator on the shore or a participant under sail - be there! The best way to arrive is by classic boat, of course - I'll be on the 40' lugger Barnabas."
