Early Easter – Start Early and Make the Most of your Sailing Season
Luke Powell has completely re built the interior of Agnes for her new role as a charter vessel – as only a famous boat builder can. Agnes will be romping about South Cornwall at Easter – sailing in company with Eve and Eda Frandsen like an over friendly Labrador! The voyage starts on a Thursday to make the most of the bank holiday. With five days and nights on board, Joanna’s home cooking, Luke and Jo for entertainment we think it is much better value for money than a Cornish cottage and meals out in crowded restaurants over Easter.

Paint, Sketch & Sail
After a successful painting & sailing voyage with local marine artist Jan Masters last year, we are have a few talented artists in mind to lead this voyage – and help those who come on the voyage develop their painting and sketching skills. Debbie is skippering this voyage but she is not the only keen artist on our staff. Skipper Melissa would like to resurrect her sketching skills too, so if you can’t make the voyage below, come and give it a go on any Eve voyage. No sailing or sketching experience required – just a willingness to give both a go, surrounded by great seascapes, rugged coastlines and Cornwall’s ever changing light conditions.

April – Women’s Voyage on Agnes
As a sequel to Eve’s Women Go Wild Weekends, the combined team of Georgia ( from our office) as skipper and Joanna Powell are offering a chance for the girls to run away with a bigger pilot cutter. You can quiz Georgia on sailing a gaff cutter across the Atlantic to the Caribbean, or ask Joanna what it is like to run a boat building and charter business like Working Sail. No experience needed. This is your chance to come sailing without the boys on board.
