Day Sailing from Falmouth
Have a wonderful Day Sailing from Falmouth on sailing trawler Pilgrim BM45. It provides a lovely day out and is a great introduction to heritage vessels. The excitement of the trip is enhanced by the fact that you will be sailing along the stunning Cornish coastline. Your cruise provides a one day ‘taster’ of traditional sailing in the sheltered waters of the Fal Estuary and around the Lizard and Roseland peninsulas.
Sailing on Pilgrim is a unique and exhilarating experience
Not only will you have a superb day out sailing our 125 year old sailing trawler, 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.
Your sailing will start and end in the historic port of Falmouth at the mouth of the Fal River. Falmouth has a bustling harbour and has been a haven for seafarers over centuries. Charles Darwin landed in Falmouth in 1836 from HMS Beagle at the end of her five year voyage. Today, it combines tourism with a thriving shipyard, many marine businesses and a growing university campus.
Where will we go?
As soon as your Day Sailing from Falmouth gets underway, you will be able to savour the delights of the Fal Estuary with Pendennis Castle and St Mawes Castle guarding the seaward entrance. The Cornish climate is mild, the sunshine record is coveted and the scenery is breathtaking. On this cruise you will be able to appreciate the scenery, wildlife and the amazing feeling of just being propelled by the wind in the sails. There’s nothing quite like it!
