“Cobnut”, our 19ft Cornish Shrimper, is also available for rental to RYA qualified day skippers.
The traditional gaff-rigged design, with lifting keel plate, is ideal for messing about on a river like the Guadiana. The large cockpit makes it perfect for use as a dayboat with plenty of space for 4-6 people. For over-night trips there are two berths inside the cabin and a tent for the cockpit. There is a built-in gas cooker in the cabin and loads of storage.
The Rio Guadiana is brilliant for Cobnut, for day trips round and about Sanlucar, and cruises further afield such as to Pomerao and Mertola, (10 & 20 miles north) and Ayamonte or the Guadiana estuary (15 miles south).
The river is tidal (up to 2m) so an awareness of tidal state and conditions is needed. There is also a 5Hp Honda outboard for getting home against wind and tide! Cobnut is moored on a swinging mooring 200m south of the village and there is also an inflatable tender for access.
