Cottages Ideally Placed for Sailing Holidays in Looe
Much like many Cornish coastal towns and villages, Looe has a rich heritage of fishing and life earning your bread and butter aboard a fishing boat is the norm. It’s easy to see how and why the sea and all that goes with it, gets under your skin in these parts.
East Looe and West Looe stand either side of a tidal river offering pretty views over the water, watching the boats bobbing with the ebb and flow of the tide. Nothing quite says seaside getaway like the clink of stays on masts and the squawk of seagulls. But Looe is not all about watching the water life come and go, it also offers plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal, to get your hands dirty and experience a taste of the fisherman’s life for yourself.
From fishing boat charters or indeed fishing boat hire for the more experienced among you, as well as wildlife-watching (these waters attract basking sharks, seals and much more) and slow, peaceful and languid mackerel trips; Looe can do it all. We love a mackerel boat trip - as fans of a slow line there is nothing better on a summer's day than laying back, the line trailing behind you, a gentle following wind and a glistening sea whilst you wait for your first bite. If you are a fan of all boats historical, then the annual luggers festival and regatta is a must for maritime enthusiasts too.
If experiencing a slice of true Cornish life aboard a vessel, with success in impersonating ‘The Deadliest Catch’ is your holiday goal then a trip to Looe and getting out on the waters of the English Channel is the sailing holiday choice for you.
