Suggestions for a Summer berth near Falmouth

The plan is to bring our newly acquired Ovni 385 from Holland in April.

It’s final Winter berth will be Liverpool (October 2018) but not wishing to rush and miss all the lovely South West Cruising.

I’m considering locating for a 6 month berth/base somewhere near Falmouth.

Due to having to return home during the spring/summer, the costs of leaving the yacht for a month at a time in different places would be more that a full 6 month berth package.

The plan therefor would be to leave Holland and make for Dartmouth onwards as soon as is possible (Weather dependant!) to the summer berth.

If anybody has experience/suggestions I would be keen to learn. I have sailed quite a bit on friends yachts and Charter yachts in the area.

    Toad is currently in Sutton Marina in Plymouth. We normally take her back to Swansea for the winter but decided to keep her in Plymouth to see if we would use her in the winter.
    We find Plymouth to be a convenient base and have cruised East to the Exe and West to Scilly and Padstow. It has good transport links, shopping,entertainment and chandlery.
    Let me know if I can be of any help. It would be good to meet up.

    Thought l would update this.
    I have now booked a swinging mooring at Mylor Marina in Falmouth.
    Having spent quite a few weeks over the years in Falmouth and surrounding area l’m hoping this will meet our needs.
    Anybody in Falmouth over the Summer? it would be good to meet up.
