Like the idea of sailing, but don’t like the idea of waves? Want to sail, but afraid of seasickness? Or perhaps, you get bored just looking at the sea and want a more interesting view? Then the River cruise may be for you.
Depending on the state of tide and weather, a sail up the river might just be what you are looking for. There will also be opportunities to anchor and explore the creeks and crannies of the upper Dart, Bow Creek and Tuckenhay, home to the noted Maltsters Arms, once owned by the famous TV Chef, Keith Floyd.
The upper part of the river is very beautiful with dense woodland reaching down to the river’s edge in many places. The river has even doubled for the upper Amazon in BBC TV’s “Onedin Line” many years ago. The river is also wide enough to cope with sailing as long as you don’t mind frequent tacking. Anchoring in many places is also quite feasible. Given the options of either sailing, or where this gets too challenging due to space restrictions, motoring, the entire river can be explored as far as Totnes.
Lunch can either be a rich al-fresco affair with fine local wine, or a more catered seated lunch depending on your requirements.
