Plymouth, Britain's ocean city has an important maritime and naval heritage. From here Sir Francis Drake sailed the English fleet in 1588 to defeat the Spanish Armada. Since then the Royal Navy has had a strong presence in nearby Devonport. Plymouth Sound is known worldwide as an anchorage and departure point for voyages both near and far. From here the Pilgrim Fathers left aboard the Mayflower in 1620 to sail across the Atlantic and a start new life in America. Further more the view over the Sound from Plymouth Hoe is one that must be seen.

Plymouth also has many interesting bars, cafes and restaurants around the Barbican and Sutton Harbour. Many are only a short walk from the marina and offer an opportunity to relax after a hard day of sailing. The National Marine Aquarium is also close by, for those rainy days or the Theatre Royal provides great entertainment. For those who enjoy retail therapy can visit the Drake Circus which has most of the well known brand shops and should keep you busy for Hours.

Further afield, Dartmoor, famous for its granite Tors, is only a few miles to the north and the Cornish coast can be reached easily either by boat, car, bus or train.
