Ports

Fowey is a small port town in Cornwall, in South-West England. Sitting at the mouth of the steep-walled Fowey River valley, Fowey is a cute tourist town, filled with pubs, cottages and an enduring fishing legacy. Walk between castle ruins, coves and caves in the surrounding bays, or go for Fish and Chips alongside the harbour. Every August, the Fowey Regatta brings a plethora of boats to the town, a more peaceful meeting than the with 'Fowey Gallant' pirates of the 1400s.

Jersey is an island in the English Channel, the largest of the Channel Islands and a Crown Dependency, affiliated to the British Isles. The capital Saint Helier provides Museums, restaurants, hotels and Nightlife. A warm climate, a green agricultural landscape and a francophile culture give Jersey a distinct atmosphere from the rest of the UK. Just 9 miles by 5, Jersey is compact enough to explore during a brief stop-over.
