2020 SEA, SALTS AND SAIL CANCELLED

We have received many kind enquiries asking when the next Sea, Salts and Sail festival will take place.  Unfortunately, at this stage, we are unable to confirm any dates or whether it will take place in 2021 or 2022.  Great care is taken to ensure that Sea, Salts and Sail marries in with other maritime festivals, which means until the dates of those festivals are confirmed we cannot set a date for our postponed festivities.  We will post the confirmed date on our website and across social media as soon as we are able.  Best wishes from the team and all our volunteers.

DUE TO COVID-19, THE 2020 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."
