Day Sailing in Devon


Trips from £59 in Devon

Sail from Brixham in the morning with tea or coffee and refreshments. Half day trips are for three hours from £59.
The afternoon sail includes Devon Cream teas.
(Which do you put on first? The cream or the jam?)
Evening Sunset Cruise with bubbly; makes for a perfect end to a day on holiday.

All day sailing with buffet lunch and light refreshments throughout the day.
6 hours sailing in the beautiful Torbay known as the ‘English Riviera” from £115

Celebrate summer in Devon with our Sail Dip and Dine. It’s the ultimate summer holiday indulgence!

You will have a day out sailing on the English Riviera on the 1895 historic trawler Pilgrim of Brixham. It’ll be good fun and a great introduction to sailing  heritage vessels. As well as that, you will be cruising along the stunning South Devon coastline.

Your cruise provides a one day ‘taster’ of traditional sailing in the sheltered waters of Start Bay, Lyme Bay and Torbay. Weather and sea state permitting, we will find a lovely sheltered bay to stop for lunch and a swim in the sea.

That might be the secluded Elberry Cove or at Man Sands or possibly Anstey’s Cove. In Devon we are spoilt for choice!
