Carrick Roads Info Please

Hi All,
We went to Mylor for 2 years, loved it but gave it a break for 2. Returning this summer for a week and just wanted a bit of advice re mooring up when visiting etc.

Pandora Inn , no probs but when we go to Falmouth/Flushing/St Mawes , where should you moor to go and have a bite, is it obvious ? Can anyone point me in the right direction so I dont pee any locals off?

Also, anyone any idea how long roughly it takes to get from Falmouth/Mylor to the Helford River {Cruising at 25knts approx}, and would it be worth it for a day trip?I have heard that the Helford River is stunning.

Thanks so much in advance as usual,
Midger

Similar question

Midger, hope you don't think I'm trying to hijack your thread but my question is so similar I figured the same people might have the answer.

I'm looking for somewhere to leave mine on its trailer around Mylor for a while. Windsport think I'll be too big to get into their place (that's actually the boat not me!!) at 7m as their access is a bit tight.

Does anyone else know/ recommend anywhere nearby?

Cheers

Oracle

I wouldn't bother, it's rough over on the Helford side.

Should take you no more than 20 mins or so to get to the mouth of the Helford from Falmouth or Mylor. It's certainly worth it...time it right with the tides though if you want to go far inland - it dries out a tad.

I've moored on the harbour wall at St. Mawes - again, watch the tide...just call the harbourmaster on Ch 12 and he'll advise. There may also be swinging moorings available but that will depend on how busy they are. There's a water taxi if you need one.

Not tried mooring at either Flushing or Falmouth: the latter never appears, er, welcoming from the water.

The Phoenix maybe rising from the ashes. A 'local' buyer has put hand up apparently.

Charlie Herbert was a miserable t............

Is Shipwrights the place on the opposite riverbank to the Mollers mooring, where they charge to moor your boat and the pasties were around 6 a go, 3 years ago?

Not you is it?
I remember when I was a wee kid in the village the pub was totally crammed every day during the summer. Its been looking more and more neglected for years. It would be amazing if someone turned it round again. I can't imagine the village regatta without the pub being open.

I've tended to go over there more than the ferry boat since it became Wrights. Just as we get the Pandora back the Shipwrights goes, typical!

Sorry for the thread hijack Midger....

Yacht haven is pretty much the only choice in Falmouth to tie up for a few hours. Its first come 1st served and you pay at the kiosk at the top of the gangway. Think its about 7 for a short stay but may be more now.

Oracle, There should be plenty of room at Mylor for you, have you tried Mylor harbour
( Mylor Yacht Harbour, Cornwall | Boatyard Services | Marina | Moorings ) rather than windsport. Plenty of boats make it down the road that are around 7 meters without any problems and they have just extended the storage at the top of the valley hugely.

Mark.

Shouldn't be any problem with the extension in the valley. Room for a couple of hundred more trailers I would guess!
