Looe Cornwall, Overnight moorings

Post by ~Ray~ » Sun Jul 25, 2010 10:57 pm

Hi
I don't remember there being any where suitable to stay over night in Looe Cornwall.
Do you know of any moorings?
Regards

Hi Ray....me again!

I looked at this a few weeks ago and the info I obtained was that 18' was the biggest they could ofer visitors moorings for......contact details are "Harbour Commissioners: (01503) 262839" but I'm not sure they'll be able to help....

Thanks Bob.
It's a while since I've been there and I wondered if anything had changed. If it's the same as it was a few years ago the harbour dries out and we have way too much air draft to get under the bridge

hello

I would suggest you use Fowey (just up the coast and plenty of mooring) and just call in at Looe as tides permit

Hi
That sounds like a good idea.
We set off for Fowey today but it's damp, drizzle and then finally FOG.
So I'm back on the pontoon in Plymouth with a cold beer :-)

fowey

Hi

You should have kept going to Fowey as the weather does not look like changing much and Fowey is an excellent halfway stop to Falmouth.

When you reach Falmouth I would rank the marinas as follows;
Falmouth Premier Marina (up river towards Penryn) as very good facilities, clean and plentiful showers etc. plus rest'nt and bar plus sainsburys and MacDonalds (if you have children!) just up the road. A ten minute walk gets you into Falmouth.
Mylor marina, good facilities rest'nt and bar plus a good chandlery, good surroundings but out on a limb if you wish to sightsee locally.(I believe they operate a water taxi to Falmouth though)
Falmouth harbour marina (opposite dockyard on town side)..poor facilities but right in middle of town so handy in that respect.
There are of course also the visitors mooring bouys (coloured green) in falmouth harbour.

Hope this helps
