Grayhound

Grayhound has been a very busy girl, since the start of the season, her cargo trips have been extremely popular and trading under sail is getting the recognition it deserves! 

So far, she has sailed over from Brittany with a ship laden with 8 tonnes cargo. The crew have offloaded wine on the Isles of Scilly at Dibble & Grub cafe, Falmouth to unload wine for Wadebridge Wines, Charlestown harbour to offload Breton cargo (Salt, Jam, flour, wine and cider- now available to purchase at the Shipwreck museum) and then onto Plymouth for another delivery of wine to the Hidden Olive in Sutton Harbour. At some of the ports she has picked up Exeter Brewery beer and Atlantic Brewery beer from Newquay to carry back with her to Brittany. 

You can help to revive trading under sail, either book one of the last remaining places for this season, or take a look at her brand new 2018 schedule which has only just been released! If you cannot wait to support this wonderful ethos, then pop into one of the many cafe's, shops and bars to purchase some of the very special produce imported with style and tradition.

"Lovely boat, beautiful journey with an unexpected and delightful treat of visiting the Scilly isles. Boat perfect food. Large amounts and tasty. Fantastic to have cakes and goodies every day too. I want to thank you particularly for making my daughter’s time so good. It was a hard sell to get her to come and she had a (unexpectedly for her) fab time. She loved helming and the watch system and you gave her a taste of a future she could love!”   Cargo crew April 2017 Douarnenez – Falmouth

Family Sailing to the Scillies

Trading under sail isn't all Grayhound has been up to, she has been kept busy day sailing out of Plymouth and took a family trip to the Scillies from Penzance at the end of May. The two families onboard privately chartered Grayhound and planned their trip early to ensure availability and dates. If you like the sound of this for the 2018 season, then let us know soon so we can see if we can fit you into her busy programme.
