As the yard closes for the Christmas break and we are following their lead in the office we wanted to take the opportunity to wish you a very Happy Christmas and New year.
2020 is going to be a huge year for us at Working Sail! On Saturday 29th February we will be launching Pellew. It will be the first time that she feels water around her keel. However the story does not end there as the team will continue to work towards getting her sailing with guest charter crew onboard from May 2020 onwards. Why not join her and be part of this epic adventure of recreating a piece of Falmouth history. Follow this link to learn more about her sailing schedule.
Due to the time of the tide, the possible weather and because we need a really big 400 tonne crane in the yard to get Pellew into the water the access to the yard will be restricted to invitation only. We will be filming the launch as much as we can on social media. If you are in the area then you can watch from the other side of the river. We are planning a grand unveiling of the boat in St Mawes in May.
Then in April Agnes will start her summer sailing season, with Pellew joining her at the beginning of May. Together they will explore the cornish coastline from our home base in Falmouth, Cornwall.
They will both take part in the annual Pilot Cutter Review, Falmouth Classics, Moushole: Sea, Salt and Sail’s festival and the Brest and Douarnenez festivals.
There are ten opportunities to sail to the Isles of Scilly.
Then in August Agnes will be venturing to Southern Ireland to be based in Baltimore.
There is a lot going on!
Along with all that we have got another boat to add to the mix…
This boat will be focusing on delivering voyages focused on training with adults and young people. Mainly RYA Courses and Duke of Edinburgh expedition voyages with a couple of fun festivals as well.
However that is something for the New year!
