Plymouth Sound

Discover this naval port's fascinating maritime history





Here is the winning entry for the RYA Dinghy Show 2021 Dinghy Trails competition. Congratulations to Peter Guilliatt from Plymouth. There is much to explore on this trail from wildlife to interesting naval history and sandy beaches, something for everyone!

I love sailing in and around Plymouth. It has large open spaces and plenty of places to explore in the rivers. Hopefully this trail will be useful to entice other people down to explore this glorious part of the UK.
