TRIP 15 | Thursday 12 July – Tuesday 17 July | Mousehole’s Sea Salt & Sail Festival
Join Agnes and artist Claudia Myatt in Falmouth for a sail west around Lizard point and across Mount’s Bay towards the 500 year old fishing village of Mousehole. The bi-annual Sea Salt & Sail festival is dedicated to preserving and promoting Cornish Maritime history. Once there and tied up you will find a harbour full of historic vessels from around Cornwall, the South-west and Brittany. Over the weekend there will be sailing in the parade of sail and plenty of time ashore to enjoy the music and stalls that fill the harbour. Claudia Myatt is a seasoned sailor and professional marine artist and will be on board to give you practical advice and encouragement to keep a ‘Carnet de Voyage’ – a sketchbook diary of your cruise, combining words and pictures to give you a lasting memory of your experience. Claudia is an inspirational and relaxed teacher who firmly believes that sketching is for everyone, not just artists:
‘I believe that everyone has the ability to draw and paint, given a few techniques and encouragement – it’s not just for those with ‘talent’. Sketching your world is not just enjoyable but very, very good for you, as it makes you look at and appreciate everything afresh’.
There will be no shortage of scenes to draw both on the water and ashore, so whether you are a complete beginner or have some experience and just need fresh inspiration, come and enjoy an enhanced sailing experience.
