Cornwall has the longest stretch of coastline in the whole of the UK and people come from far and wide to get a slice of its seaside culture.  Falmouth in particular is said to be one of the UK’s finest natural harbours and as a result is a massive hotspot for sailing.

With the weather being as perfect as it was, my family and I decided to jump on the boat and embark on a voyage to Falmouth.  It’s incredibly peaceful being out on the water on a tranquil sunny day, switching off the engine and letting the fresh sea air fill the sails.  I just love it.
Being out on the water is a great opportunity to do a spot of fishing.  Falmouth happens to be one of the best coastal spots for fishing in the UK.  I caught my first ever catch of three mackerel in one go.  Dinner sorted!
We ended up catching a decent haul of mackerel which we later stuck on the BBQ.  There’s nothing like eating fresh fish that you have caught yourself.
