Plymouth enjoys one of the finest deep water harbours in the country and is host to many internationally renowned yachting events including the internationally renowned America's Cup in Millbay Docks, where King Point Marina is now constructed, threw a spotlight on Plymouth as a world class sailing destination.

King Point Marina offers easy access to Salcombe and Dartmouth in Devon, or head west to River Tamar, Lyhner, Cawsand, River Yealm, Fowey and Falmouth in Cornwall. For those venturing further afield on longer cruises the Channel Islands, Isles of Scilly and French coast are all within striking distance.

Some suggested sailing destinations are detailed below. These are intended as a helpful description and do not relieve masters and skippers of vessels of their obligation to conduct their own safe pilotage plans.
