The Classic Sailing Pilot Cutter Review

This event is organised by ourselves, with a lot of help from local businesses and St Mawes Sailing Club as Race Co-Ordinators, St Mawes Pier & Harbour Company and Fowey Harbour Commissioners, other sponsors as hosts and the pilot cutter owners themselves. 

The Pilot Cutter Review will follow a similar format each year, but we are always looking for ways of making it more fun for the crews.

The 2018 Pilot Cutter Review will run from Friday 25th to Sunday the 27th May.

Do I need experience ?... and is racing really fun for novices ?

No you do not need experience to race on a charter boat. Yes, it is an adrenalin buzz sailing in close quarters with other powerful pilot cutters, but we aim to keep them intact as we have a whole season to sail. Our skippers spend every week of the year sailing with a different bunch of complete novices or sailors who have never been on a traditional boat before.  We always create time before race events to train you up. Our skipper rarely shout as their livelihood and profesionalism is dependant on being nice to sailing guests and communicating well.  If they do shout in the heat of the moment it is usually because they have made a less than perfect decision and they will be deeply embarassed and likely to apologise as soon as they can!
