Sailing Lessons

“Between the Land and the Sea” is a fair description of the Roseland, one of the most beautiful parts of Cornwall. The best way to experience the beauty of this peninsula is by water and it provides some of the best sailing areas in the country.

We’ve partnered with local company Roseland Paddle & Sail to offer Sailing tuition at all levels, as well as SUP and Windsurfing Lessons & Hire.

Based in Portscatho, which is just up the estuary from St Mawes, Idle Rocks guests are able to book a Taster session from £70, which gives a half day introduction to the sport, or a 2 day RYA course. For the more experienced, they also offer equipment hire.
