Plymouth is undoubtedly the place to be for this week so why not hop aboard for our Pilgrim Mayflower Commemorative Event. Exactly 400 years ago, on 16th September 1620, the Mayflower sailed out of Plymouth Sound in England heading for the New World. It is fitting that Pilgrim will be there to mark this anniversary and for our guests to be able to soak up the atmosphere and the sense of history.
We will be sailing each day and will give our guests the choice of a day ashore or a day in the Sound or out at sea. There will be an opportunity each morning to go ashore and explore the city and return on board each afternoon. In the meantime Pilgrim will be sailing in the Sound and out into the English Channel.
Pilgrim is a 125 year old heritage sailing vessel and part of the UK Historic Fleet. Built as a gaff rigged ketch, she is over 75′ long and sails in the traditional manner. She was fully restored between 2009 and 2013 and is original above decks but with contemporary accommodation for 15 passengers and crew below decks. Pilgrim is certified by the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency. Guest will have the opportunity to work with the crew and help sail her. The style of sailing and the deckwork required will be comparable to that which was common in the 17th century.
Throughout this 5 day, 4 night cruise, Pilgrim will be an ideal base to participate in the commemoration. Guests will have their own comfy berth on board and will be right in the heart of Plymouth to join in as they choose. The City of Plymouth has a proud maritime history and tradition and this commemoration will showcase everything the city has to offer. Accommodation in Plymouth will be at a premium so why not book your berth and have a splendid sea view. There’s no better way to celebrate than with our Pilgrim mayflower Commemorative Event.
