Voyages and Events for 2018:

Call Kim on 07795 480254 to discuss

We are delighted to announce that we have this year acquired a second yacht in order to further enhance the sailing experiences for our clients! Not quite the same as Polly Agatha, in fact entirely different, but delightful with an equally breathtaking handmade interior, and capable of going to some truly exotic locations.

No pictures are available yet but our intention is to make a more formal announcement early in the Spring and start offering ‘extended’ cruising opportunities later in the season with clients being able to book luxury skippered charter in Northern Brittany, Spain, Portugal and the Canaries next winter.

In the following years we will be visiting the Mediterranean and then the Caribbean.

All this while Polly Agatha continues to offer some really exciting events and opportunities in Northern Europe and we can now show you the draft outline for the 2018 season.

  • Pilot Cutter Review 2018


    Join Polly Agatha for one of the highlights of the year – The Pilot Cutter Review 2018! A dozen or more pilot cutters get together every year to test themselves against each other. This is not a trip for the faint hearted, the sailing is keen and at times hard work as we have to sail her from Cowes down to Fowey, then race round to St.Mawes and then bring her back to Cowes! In the evenings we raft up with the other boats and have a BBQ and a pint, chatting over the days events with the other crews. 

    The racing starts on Friday, from a gorgeous little hideaway on the Polruan side of the River Fowey, called Prime Cellars. Pilot cutter ‘Hespa’ owners kindly throw open their doors, and host the first night of festivities. St Austell Brewery sponsors the beer for the evening, and we provide local cheese, bread and apples. Friday morning we all set off for a race from Fowey to St Mawes, and this is where the fun starts. With these powerful boats sailing in the harbour, it is an amazing sight. Saturday and Sunday are race days, with one or two races on each day. Saturday night we spend up the River Fal, and have a BBQ, and share stories from the day.

    Every night is a social feast, and great fun. No previous experience of sailing is necessary,  and you will have time to get to know Polly Agatha before racing starts. You will find yourselves enriched by getting involved in the pulling of ropes, taking the helm and handling of sail. Although racing is involved, this is primarily a fun, social event, and open to all. If you have friends and family who wish to watch, then St Mawes Castle is a good place to take in the action as a spectator.
