It's not Spain, but it'll blow your socks off!
Here at Pilgrim HQ in Brixham, we've been waiting to see how our reservations went in July to confirm our Summer 2020 Resumption Sailing Programme. The good news is we're commissioning this week and going ahead. Some trips are full, but there are plenty of berths available and the Pilgrim Foundation needs all the support we can get in these very difficult times.
We have created a COVID Secure way to operate Half Day, Day & Evening sailings from Brixham and Dartmouth.
Our programme commences on 17th August and runs through to the end of September.
These trips are ideal for family groups who want to get back together as well as solos, couples and 'bubbles'. The English Riviera and the stunning South Devon coast are ready for you to come and explore. Pilgrim is in great shape, it’s her 125th Anniversary year and we’re raring to go.
The missing ingredient is you! Please check out our schedule and book a wonderful day out now.
Morning, Afternoon and Evening Sailings
Day Sails including Picnics and Swimming
Keeping you Safe
We know you’re concerned about staying safe and that’s our priority as well. The skipper and crew will sail Pilgrim in a different way to maintain social distancing. Guest numbers are being reduced to ensure you can keep apart from other people and there is a strict hygiene regime in place. We welcome scrutiny of our Risk Assessment. Families and household bubbles can stay together and you can charter Pilgrim for exclusive use and have her all to yourselves!
Looking after your Money
All payments made to our charity are kept in a client account until a sailing has taken place. If you book now and we are not able to sail for any reason we will refund your money within 14 days or transfer you to another sailing of your choice this year or next year. If you decide not to sail for any reason and give us 7 days notice, we will also transfer you to a future sailing without any hassle.
The Sailing Experience
Nothing can change the excitement of sailing on Pilgrim. Things will need to be a bit different from usual on board. Guests will not be able to assist the crew in handling the boat but our on board Purser will explain everything that is happening, tell you about Pilgrim’s incredible history and provide you with refreshments. No food preparation will take place on board and all our servings will be individually wrapped and sealed before we set sail. Drinks will be available in disposable cups or bring your favourite drinks bottle. Access below decks will be controlled to only allow access to the heads in a way that maintains strict hygiene protocols.
