This weekend I went Wakeboarding in Falmouth
It is fifteen years since I went Wakeboarding in Falmouth.
Since 2002 I have been wakeboarding in the Gulf of St Tropez so understandably I was rather apprehensive. I need not have worried. The sun was out, the sea was flat, and best of all no super yachts or other craft to chop up the waters. Quiet and with idyllic scenery.
We started the afternoon with lunch at the Pandora Inn with just the best crab sandwich ever. Then we headed across Falmouth Bay to the Helford River in lovely sunny conditions. Our Jeanneau 7.5 reaching 38knots very happily
We passed Frenchmans Creek and met our friends who had paddled 9 nm to meet us. (They are training for a sea kayak crossing to the Scillies). As the sun was shining and there were no other boats about it was perfect to get in the water.
To be honest I didn’t feel in the slightest cold, and the conditions were great. I persuaded my mate to go in as well. She had a good laugh and really enjoyed the session.
When we finished wakeboarding we took the boat alongside at the Helford Yacht club and enjoyed a sundowner with our friends. Overlooking the Helford river with stunning views. What could be better
And finally we towed our intrepid kayakers back to Falmouth. Think the drinks after the 9nm paddle might have had something to do with it. Anyway a new activity is born..Canadian kayak surfing. A bit hard on the shoulders and knees though.
What a fabulous day and to top it off a beautiful sunset as we powered back in to Falmouth marina at 38knots. What a lovely end to the perfect day.
You too can enjoy wakeboarding in Falmouth. We are based at Premier Marina in Falmouth and offer wakeboarding training and boat charters which can be for half or full day. You can wakeboard as part of your boat charter. It makes such a great day on the water if you can get together with a group of friends and share the cost. For my money just perfect!
