Preheat oven to 200 degrees C / Gas Mark 6.
Bake the potato for 45 minutes, or until it's soft in the centre. Set aside to cool down.
Cook the bacon under the grill or in a frying pan. Cut into strips when cooked.
Cut the potato longways, and scoop out all the potato into a bowl, being careful not to break through the skin.
Add half of the cheese and bacon to the potato: mix well.
Spoon the mixture back into the potato skins, and top with remaining grated cheese.
Put back into the oven or under the grill for another 5 minutes to melt the cheese.
Take two cocktail sticks, and thread a slice of ham on each to look like sails.
Secure a cherry tomato at the top end of the stick and place in the middle of the potato.
