Pilgrim is back after lockdown with Covid Secure day sailings through the rest of August and September. If you want to sail with us check out the schedule here. There’s been a lot of preparation done by our skipper and volunteers over recent weeks. One of the final tasks was to cast Horatio adrift and

To Sail or not to Sail? – That is the question for Pilgrim. Not an easy decision! We now have the green light to resume sailing as long as its safe and within COVID Secure guidelines. Everyone is reeling from the recent events and as we emerge into a strange new “normal” we need to

Pilgrim’s 125th Anniversary – 4th June 2020 In these challenging times, we won’t be having a party today celebrating the 125th anniversary of Pilgrim’s launch. It was on 4th June 1895 that our beloved Pilgrim was slipped into Brixham Harbour at Upham’s Yard. Our Members, volunteers and all our supporters should take a moment though

There’s no doubting it’s the festive season in Dartmouth. Pilgrim is lit up with 475 feet of Christmas cheer! Despite our sails being away for maintenance we’ve managed to mimic the sails to create a truly festive glow on the waterfront. Pilgrim has joined in the Candelit Dartmouth Festival which also marks the start of

Last weekend our Pilgrim volunteer crew training got started in Dartmouth in South Devon. Pilgrim relies on our volunteer community to keep her sailing. That’s not just with operations and maintenance that’s with crewing as well. We have a professional skipper and seasonal mate but the rest of the crew comes from our volunteer team

Seafood and Eat It – that’s our motto! Pilgrim has played her part in promoting the English Riviera as the UK’s ‘go to’ international seafood destination. We scheduled a special celebratory cruise over the weekend of 21st/22nd September to join in ‘England’s Seafood FEAST Festival’. Departure was from our home port of Brixham where more
