£820 donated by Relay SW team Posted on

A massive thank you to the team from Relay SW for their very generous donation of £820, raised following their epic circumnavigation of Devon and Cornwall by foot, by bike and by sail. This was a great effort by the team which included young people from South Devon College and members of the Devon and Cornwall Police (Torquay branch).

Toby and Matt joined the team last night to re-live the event and present an award – on behalf of the Relay SW team – to Si Costin, the team leader.  Si’s excellent organisation and leadership ensured they smashed their target time for the challenge and raised valuable funds for Trinity.

Thank you to Si, and the team, for all your hard work.

* If you would like to help raise funds for Trinity or discuss a fundraising idea you might have, please give Toby a call on 01803 883355.

Trinity Sailing’s 2014 Programme Launched Posted on

We are very pleased to announce that our 2014 sailing programme is ready to be released.

This season, in addition to Trinity’s regular adventures around our familiar stomping grounds of Devon and Cornwall, Leader will take part in the Tall Ships exploring Holland, Norway and Denmark, before venturing home across the North Sea and delving in to the heart of Scotland.

She will be running out of Oban for six weeks, including a wildlife cruise which will be back by popular demand. Leader will be returning home along the west coast, taking in all the UK has to offer on this extended adventure voyage.

Provident will be sampling the delights of the French coast and the secluded anchorages of the Channel Islands. Having spent the mid-summer cruising the Isles of Scilly, she is embarking on an extended 10-day Brittany voyage exploring all this magnificent coastline has to offer.

In 2014 we have some special cruises: the Brixham Heritage Regatta; Dartmouth Regatta; an exploration through the Dutch Inland Waterways, via Bruges; and a voyage along the West Coast of the UK.

We also have a number of weekend and mid-week cruises during the season, giving the opportunity to sample a taste of traditional sailing with Trinity. We also now offer gift-vouchers, which would make an ideal present for a loved one.

Whether you are looking for a relaxing sailing holiday on classic vessels, an adventure holiday, expeditions to spectacular locations, an opportunity to gain your Duke of Edinburgh Gold Residential, or an a RYA practical qualification, Trinity has much to offer — from experienced sailors to complete beginners.

Our vessels are available to charter for family and friends, so please speak to us about tailored cruising packages at attractive rates.
