For visiting yachtsmen, the most useful point of reference is the entrance to the Helford River.
The "waypoint" normally used for this is one mile east of the Helford entrance. This is 50.05'.70 North and 05.04'.00 West.
As a matter of interest, the prominent church tower visible through the trees on the north side of the entrance is St. Maunanus, the old parish church of Mawnan, which was a traditional landmark for sailors in the days before satellite navigation.
