Brittany and Paimpol Festival
Our Brittany and Paimpol Festival is a sailing holiday like no other. There’s amazing sailing, fabulous boats, quayside music, street parades and sensational fireworks. When it comes to maritime festivals – this is the highlight of 2021.
Sail to France and back for a 14 day holiday on Pilgrim from Brixham. The Brittany coastline is simply delightful and there’s so much to enjoy. We will hope to explore the Pink Granite Coast and we may even drop into the Channel Islands as well. Cruise prices include full board arrangements and admission tickets for the festival.
Here’s a flavour of the Festival with Pilgrim participating in 2019. It tells a wonderful story about why you should go to Paimpol in 2021. There are only 10 guest spaces available. Join us, bring a friend, bring the family and if you’re quick you can charter the whole boat!
If you’re tempted by Glastonbury – think again! You will have a comfy berth, excellent cuisine, great music and there’s no mud! There may even be some rock and roll! Check out the Paimpol website to get a flavour of what has gone before
This cruise is one that every sailor and photographer can’t afford to miss in 2021. We sail to and from our home port of Brixham in Devon for this amazing two week cruising holiday. There cannot be a better way to celebrate summer, Brittany, and heritage sailing – than this!
Cruising on Pilgrim is a unique experience. Not only will you have a superb sailing holiday, but you will see how Victorian fishermen handled these heavy and powerful vessels. You will be able to assist the crew to sail Pilgrim in the traditional manner yet benefit from the modern guest facilities we have on board.
Our Brittany and Paimpol Holiday will not only include all the excitement of the Festival Chant de Marin in Brittany, but will also mean you get to enjoy the wonderful wildlife and the amazing feeling of just being propelled by the wind in the sails.
