Sailing boat Avannaq 2011 arrived in Penzance on 21 May. They had strong breeze on the way but, as they say, everything is fine on board.
The ancient market town of Penzance is the capital of the far west of Cornwall and is set in beautiful Mounts Bay - a body of water dominated by the grandeur of St. Michael's mount. Located just 10 miles from Land's End, an area of celtic culture and outstanding natural beauty surrounds the town.
Named "Pen Sans" in the ancient Cornish language, meaning "Holy Headland", referring to the headland to the western side of the harbour on which a chapel was established by early Christians well over 1000 years ago, the town received Royal Charters for its harbour in 1512, for markets and fairs in 1592 and was formally incorporated by Royal Charter in 1614.
