Our Sailing Trawler Day Cruise is a great introduction to heritage vessels and to the stunning South Devon coastline. Your cruise provides a one day ‘taster’ of traditional sailing in the sheltered waters of Torbay, Start Bay and Lyme Bay.
Sailing on Pilgrim is a unique and exhilarating experience. Not only will you have a superb day out 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 Sailing Trawler Day Cruise gets underway, you will be able to savour the delights of Torbay. It’s known as the English Riviera with good reason. The climate is mild, the sunshine record is coveted and the scenery is breathtaking. Whether we stay in the bay or go 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!
