Mylor Yacht Harbour was originally the most westerly Naval Dockyard and victualling station in England, then home of HMS Ganges and the Packet ships and centre for the French Resistance during the Second World War.
Mylor, now home to the last fleet of Oyster fishing boats under sail, is a haven for water-lovers of all types, whether you enjoy crabbing with the children off the pontoon, cruising local waters or racing further offshore.
In 2011 the new Mylor Yacht Club was built. The project cost over £1million and incorporates Café Mylor and Watersports shop. Alongside this construction there is a new shower block for berth holders and visitors to the harbour and the lower car park has been raised by 1m to prevent the high water flooding disrupting operations.
The marina has seen the installation of new service bollards to ensure a safe and reliable electrical supply and water for all berths with hoses for boat owner use.
We were lucky enough to act as the host training camp for the Paralympic GB sailing team while they prepared for the Paralympics in September 2012. It was really nice having them onsite during the summer.
