Scillies Heritage Sailing
Our much coveted Scillies Heritage Sailing is to and from Falmouth in Cornwall. From there we aim to make the passage westward around the Lizard Peninsula and out to the Isles of Scilly. These enchanting islands are something really special. The stunning scenery and amazing marine wildlife are a real treat. We will plan to use our favourite anchorages between St Agnes and Gugh and between Treso and Bryher. These provide easy access to the adjacent islands for their pristine beaches and for adventures ashore. Hopefully we’ll also get ashore on St Mary’s and St Martins but everything we do will be dependent on weather and tides. Usually we have a picnic or beach barbeque ashore during the trip. The surroundings are just splendid as are the sunrises and sunsets over the sea. This is one of our ‘bucket list’ destinations
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 in the south west approaches. 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.
Throughout your Scillies Heritage Sailing you will be able to savour the amazing feeling of just being propelled by the wind in the sails. By the time Pilgrim arrives back in Falmouth over a week later, you will have friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. These sailings to the Scillies are always our most popular cruises of the season so don’t delay if you want to go.
