Pilgrim basking in the sunshine in the Isles of Scilly

Having not made it to the Scillies a couple of weeks ago owing to Storm Miguel we are delighted to say that Pilgrim is now basking in the sunshine in the Isles of Scilly. She set off from Falmouth on Tuesday and, after waiting for the tide off Coverack, undertook a night passage to the islands.

Pilgrim moored in New Grimsby Sound between Tresco and Bryher on Wednesday for a couple of days. This gave guests the opportunity to have walks ashore and explore these stunning islands. On Friday, Pilgrim sailed around the archipelago and then anchored off St Martin’s for a beach BBQ. The Scillies beach BBQ is a regular feature of our annual visit to the islands and a favourite with guests and crew alike.

Today Pilgrim set off from St Martin’s and is now anchored in the bay at Hugh Town which is on the main island of St Mary’s.
