We are delighted to announce that the Sea, Salts and Sail festival will be taking place from the 1st to the 3rd July 2022! ⛵️ 🌊 

The team will be working hard behind the scenes to bring the festival together and will release further information when possible over the coming months. 

SETTING THE DATE – We sadly had to cancel the July 2020 festival due to Covid. We have traditionally set our biennial dates on the even years, a few weeks before the Brittany festivals of Brest and Duarnenez. Therefore, following Duarnenez’ dates now being set, linked to our historical dates and local high tides, the only July option is the 1st to 3rd.

We know many of you will want to book your accommodation and plans around the dates, but please also bear in mind that the event will be subject to Covid guidelines at the time. We’re very much looking forward to seeing you all and the beautiful sail boats in the harbour!

1-3 JULY 2022

"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."
