Office Staff

Classic Sailing International HQ -A Rural Affair

We accidentally downsized in 2008 during the height of the recession from a huge office, classroom and workshop to just one end of the building. Ironically since then we have been expanding rapidly. Our current office in Gerrans near Portscatho is tiny but we manage to squeeze four people into what used to be our workshop. Outside is a perfect bit of rural Cornwall, but when the SE gales blow you can hear the surf on the Roseland coastline and taste the salt in the air. We can nip just outside the door for a coffee and a bit of fresh air and watch the horses cavorting in the wind or give our office dogs a blast around the field.

Pop in for a Cup of Tea

If you find yourself on the single track road to St Anthony Lighthouse then you really should pop in for a cup of tea.  We can do Italian coffee, builders tea, earl grey, herbal tea, rooibus tea, cows milk or soya milk on a good day. Look out for Parton Vrane (means 'Field of the Crows' in Cornish)  on the left, about 0.75 miles beyond Gerrans Church.  Look for a low timber clad building with 6ft high 'Classic Sailing' painted in white on black workshop doors.

The office normally comprises Adam and Debbie Purser, Becky Prizeman and Melissa Williams. Anna Gibson is our very able part time assistant and book keeper.  Out of the window about two miles to the east we can watch sailing ships heading along the Cornish Coast past Nare Head and Gull Rock.
