What better way to spend a summer’s evening than with our Pilgrim Summer Sunset Sail. You can cruise out of Brixham and experience heritage sailing at its best on the English Riviera. We set off at 6pm for an evening ‘taster’ of traditional sailing in the sheltered waters of Torbay. Then hopefully you’ll be able to witness one of the bay’s spectacular sunsets before heading back in at dusk. Clearly that’s not guaranteed!
Sailing on Pilgrim is a unique and exhilarating experience. Not only will you have a superb evening sailing our 125 year old Brixham 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 fishing port of Brixham at the southern end of Torbay. Brixham is often referred to as the ‘mother of trawling’ as it was at the heart of the development of the sailing trawler and is still England’s most productive fishing port to this day. It is bustling now, as it was then, and the harbour is still characterised by quaint colourful fishermen’s cottages and scores of fishing boats.
As soon as your Pilgrim Summer Sunset Sail gets underway, you will be able to savour the delights of being at sea. Torbay is known as the English Riviera with good reason. The climate is mild and the sunshine record is coveted. Whether we just stay in the bay or go go a bit further out, 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 and it’s a great way to spend a Friday evening!
