Channel Coasts and Islands Holiday
Our Channel Coasts and Islands holiday cruise proved very popular in 2019 and it’s back for the 2021 season. Our aim is to visit picturesque ports and harbours on both sides of the channel depending on the weather, wind and tides. Wherever we go, you can be assured of stunning scenery and wonderful wildlife. The English and French coasts are strewn with delightful places to stopover. The cruise will also be tailored to suit guest preferences wherever possible. They might include the Pink Granite Coast of Brittany or a leisurely saunter around the Channel islands. In 2019 we went to Guernsey, Sark and Alderney and it was a thoroughly enjoyable trip.
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.
Pilgrim will depart on this 8 day, 7 night, cruise from her home port of Brixham at the southern end of Torbay. Throughout the trip you will be able to savour the amazing feeling of just being propelled by the wind in the sails. By the time Pilgrim arrives back in Brixham, over a week later, you will have friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
Take a look at Pilgrim in full sail here. You can find out more about life on board Pilgrim by reading our Sailing Guide. This tells you all the things you’ll need to know to make the best of your time onboard. If you would like to read reviews of guest experiences on Pilgrim check them out here.
