Classic sail in the Bay


The sailing ship Georges Stag makes her way out of the Bay to the Scillys...


while the beam trawler Cornishman positively glows in the evening sun...



resplendent in her new coat of paint after returning from the Dutch shipyard and a major refit...


with some interesting new kit on the deck...


including this huge deck fish pounds...


and an interesting flush deck hatch...

on the New (Mary Williams) Quay is an ultra contemporary looking catamaran from CTruk Boats...


while a classic example of a varnished Scottish woddedn built hull graces one of the pontoon berths...


along with a host of sailing craft as the season gets underway...


Tamar Class relief lifeboat Taylor Freeman has a resting place for the night...


champing at the bit - the four biggest boats in the local Cornish Sardine fleet lie in anticipation of the season to come - everyday they will be listening to the boat-to-boat radio and shoreside conversations of other fishermen to see if there are any signs of the fish appearing in the Bay......


the netter Ajax landed her trip of hake to the market for sale in the morning...


while the Replenish, the biggest of the visiting prawn boats from Scotland waits to go back to sea today...


not far behind the Crsytal Sea II as she heads for the gaps...


and out into open water past the Mount...


while her fishing pal, the Tranquility goes stern on to the end of the quay to run her trawls ashore for repair...


three inshore boats get their fish ashore...


while over in Penzance harbour the Happy Return has returned from a day's sailing in the Bay...


in dock, the beamer James RH gets some serious attention paid to her hull.
