It’s the time of year we wrap up warm and spend the day in the autumn sun giving the garden a post-summer tidy up.

Each autumn we have a garden themed window, and this year we’ve filled our shops with vintage gardening tools, terracotta pots and Seasalt seed packets designed by our in-house Seasalt artists. It’s the perfect reminder to get us all thinking about what to plant for the season ahead.

Although the official start of autumn is still a few days away, things in Cornwall are certainly feeling more autumnal by the minute. The weather is cooler and crispy leaves are finding their way along our paths. No matter how much we love a Cornish summer there is something about the colours of autumn that we can’t help but get excited about.

A Summer of Sailing

posted on August 9th, 2015 by Laura

We love any excuse to get out on the water, and a regatta gives us the perfect excuse to ditch the desks and jump aboard a boat to cheer on sailing crews.

The summer months are the ideal time for boat races, waters are calmer and the weather balmy, (although being in Cornwall we take this with a pinch of salt and make sure we have a trusty Seafolly in hand) and we’re lucky enough to have lots of events taking place right on our doorsteps.

Falmouth Week Regatta starts today. Both beginners and experts will take to the Carrick Roads and Falmouth Bay in a series of races, there are events throughout the town as well as the eagerly anticipated Champagne Race.

The annual Champagne Race takes place on Wednesday, culminating in a display from the Red Arrows.  This traditional race earned its name after avid sailor Lord Shawcross and his friend, Jack Silley, broke free from the main race they were taking part in in 1951 and raced between themselves to settle the result. The loser graciously presented the winner with a case of champagne and so the tradition was born. All types of boat can take place in this race and seeing all the boats out in the bay is a real highlight of the week.

The Salcombe Yacht Club Regatta is also taking place this week, celebrating their 120th regatta!

The Fowey Regatta (16th-22nd August) is one not be missed. Aside from a full programme of races, there’s also a carnival through the town, sandcastle competitions, gig rowing, crab catching competitions, closing with a  fireworks display over the Fowey River.

The Dartmouth Royal Regatta takes place over the 27th – 29th August. The annual regatta on the River Dart started back in 1822, and after a visit from Queen Victoria in the 1850s it was granted Royal status. This year, nearly 300 boats will be taking to the water, local rowing teams will battle it out to become champions, and aircraft including the Red Arrows will take to the skies for spectacular air demonstrations.

Good luck to everyone taking part in a regatta this month, and if you’re going along to support pop into one of our shops and say hi, we’ll be in the regatta spirit.

Don’t forget to send us your regatta pictures on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
