Thank you for your email, and for providing such an amazing experience. 

The ship is beautiful, the crew lovely and friendly. We even were blessed with beautiful weather 🙂

 I had a bit of a problem with my work shifts changing, so my friend and I were really appreciative that you were so accommodating and swapped the day of our trip. I called, and spoke to someone called Roger (I think), he was very helpful. (Correct, Roger is very helpful.)

Things to improve – the crew seemed to be a bit shy. It would be nice if they would talk a bit about the ship, its history (I’m sure it has some), about its parts, may be about surrounding area, about themselves. I’m sure they have one or two stories to tell.

I’m not suggesting they have to talk throughout whole trip, but once the sails are up, particularly with nice calm weather, may be just spend an hour or so to warm up the atmosphere amongst the team, show interest in their passengers. 

Overall the trip was very enjoyable and everyone was very pleasant, and I would definitely do it again. 

Thank you so much for providing this unforgettable experience. 

Kind regards

Our family of 4 loved it! Our 11 and 12 year old boys enjoyed being involved, and the crew were great in including them where possible. Seeing them off screens and soaking up nature at a much slower pace was priceless and something they’ll always remember. It was very windy so quite a different experience from our last voyage, and welcome all the same. Great to see The Pilgrim in full swing again. We will definitely be back! Thanks to all at Classic Sailing.

A fabulous first experience on a beautiful old ship. Skipper and crew were amazing. As was the food! Great Boat, Great Team, Great company. I would love to make a return trip and would highly recommend Pilgrim to anyone out there who is thinking about it. Sign up now! But leave a space for me please 🙂


Had an awesome time. Crew was superb and professional. Pilgrim is in fabulous shape.


Lovely boat and great crew. No question was too daft. A highly enjoyable education.


This was my first voyage on a tall ship and I had no previous experience of sailing. The crew were wonderful – friendly, calm and patiently explained and gave me confidence to help with sailing the boat. They also helped to build a warm, friendly and fun atmosphere among all of us onboard. I cannot wait until I have the opportunity to sail on Pilgrim again.


Sailing on Pilgrim was amazing. I loved every moment, she is totally beautiful. Swimming ashore and snorkelling. Building a fire on the beach. I love the freedom and peace being on the water, it’s so natural and relaxing. I had such a great time with a great bunch of people.


I can’t wait for the next time- sailing on Pilgrim isn’t just a holiday, it’s an adventure full of new experiences, friendship, laughter and fun.


A super day assisted by lovely sun and cloud, sheer joy at being on the water.


Fantastic few days sailing on Pilgrim, the experience was well past my expectations and this was the result of the crew who all worked very hard in making this an unforgettable experience.

Wow, what can I say about my first trip on the beautiful Pilgrim with Classic Sailing? It was amazing! I am still smiling about the utterly brilliant weekend. I booked this trip as a bit of an escape from the day to day normal life on the land and it was well worth it. I returned home more relaxed, a little sunburnt, but wanting to just jump straight back on board! I t was great fun being allowed to be involved in raising the sails and learning a bit of history about the vessel. If you hare thinking about booking a voyage, be it a day trip, weekend or longer… do it! I could not recommend it more highly and as a single traveller I also felt at ease and safe while on the whole voyage.


Brilliant, fantastic, I could not have wished for better. The crew couldn’t do enough for us and made the day even more special. If you want to do something a bit different for a big birthday and something that your guests will talk about for a long time then I would highly recommend Pilgrim.


Pilgrim is a fantastic heritage project that deserves everyones support. I have sailed on her twice now and on both occasions the party has had a most wonderful sailing experience. Get out there and appreciate her!


The trip was one of the best experiences of my life and something I will never forget. Food was wonderful… beds were comfy… crew were faultless and very knowledgeable about the boat and its history. You can tell they have a true passion for their jobs. I would certainly return again and will be recommending to all I know!
