Falmouth Classics & Shanty Festival
Pilgrim’s Falmouth Classics & Shanty Festival cruise is one of the highlights of our season. It combines everything that is great about ‘the Classics’ with the opportunity to explore the Fal Estuary and the south coast of Cornwall. You will be sailing on our amazing fully restored Victorian sailing trawler built in 1895. She’s restored as original above deck and with comfy contemporary accommodation down below. We have room for 10 passengers on this 4 day 3 night extravaganza out of Falmouth. It’s a fabulous way to have that special holiday break in Cornwall that all your friends will envy.
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.
Your Falmouth Classics & Shanty Festival cruise will involve sailing with a fleet of fabulous heritage vessels and classic yachts together with time ashore to soak up the atmosphere and events. The Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival runs in parallel with the Classics. It means Falmouth is a special place to be over that weekend. In between all of those activities we’ll go sailing in the Fal Estuary and along the stunning south coast of Cornwall. With a comfy berth and full board accommodation you get the best of everything – sailing, events, food and accommodation. That’s an incredible value offer.
Our sailing will feature the sheltered waters of the Fal Estuary and we will likely visit beautiful St. Mawes. Once out of the estuary our passages may include the enchanting Helford River and the stunning coasts of the Lizard and Roseland peninsulas. Our programme will, as ever, be dependent on the weather and tides. Wherever we go, you will be able to enjoy exhilarating sailing and soak up the fabulous scenery and the wonderful wildlife. Pilgrim provides a chance to see Cornwall in summer from a different perspective. in good company but provides the chance to also get away from the crowds and congestion of the Festivals
