4. Offshore sailing from Cornwall to Ireland 2024
From Falmouth on the Southwest coast of Cornwall, we sail around Land’s End towards the Irish Sea to Belfast.
A journey of approximately 450 NM. During the trip, you will also sail at night and participate fully as a crew member in a watch system, assisted of course by the crew. An adventurous sailing trip in which you are active with all aspects of sailing! A great sailing voyage with highlights like Dublin and Isle of Man.

Embarkation: Saturday 27.04.24 at 2 pm in Falmouth
Disembarkation: Monday 06.05.24 at 10 am in Belfast
On Saturday 27 April at 2 pm your adventure starts in Falmouth! We spend the afternoon getting acquainted, safety on board and everything you need to know about the ship. Then we set sail for Helford River where we overnight. Our next stop is the Irish capital Dublin. A 2-days sail of about 300 NM. We stay a day so there is an opportunity to discover Dublin. Definitely worth a visit!
Between Ireland and England lies the British Isle of Man. A distance of about 80 NM. This means 1 more night at sea. The plan is to berth at the fishing port of Peel on the west side of the island. We also stay here for a day to visit the Isle of Man. Be sure to visit the 140-year-old smokehouse for delicious Manx kippers (smoked herring!).
The final leg to Belfast is a trip of around 50 miles. We plan to arrive here on day 8. This will allow time to visit the city. Making a Belfast mural tour or visiting the Titanic museum is very impressive, definitely recommended. The next morning we will say goodbye to each other after breakfast at 10 am.
