Richard’s love of the Cornish coast began as a child when he visited Cornwall every summer with his parents, and inspired him to move permanently to Cornwall in 1983. He and his young family enjoyed spending holiday time sailing on the Petty Fox on the Isles of Scilly and on Cornish Crabbers along the Fal estuary.
These family sailing trips inspired Richard to pursue his dream of purchasing a Pilot Cutter 30 – the flagship of the Cornish Crabber range – and to set up Cornishblue Sailing to introduce visitors to Cornwall’s spectacular coastline whilst they enjoy the delights of this beautiful traditional styled sailing boat. Originally based at Falmouth Marina, Richard has moved to Mylor Yacht Harbour for the 2016 sailing season and has a Cornish Crabber 26', Cornish Crabber 22' and Cornish Shrimper 21' for bareboat and skippered charter.
Richard is a qualified Yachtmaster and you can be assured that he will always deliver a safe and reliable service. He is always happy to answer any questions prior to or during your trip and his friendly and enthusiastic approach will put you at your ease.
