Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Posted on

The Trinity Sailing team would like to wish all of our guests and clients a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We hope to see you all back on board in 2017.

Although a few of our voyages are now sold-out, we still have plenty of availability across the Trinity fleet.

You can view our 2017 brochure here, or look out for availability on our website here.

Our office will close for the festive break from Thursday, December 22 and reopen on Tuesday, January 3. If you would like to reserve a berth on a voyage during this period you can complete a booking form here, or send an email to team@trinitysailing.org

Volunteering in Early 2017 Posted on

Trinity Sailing is inviting volunteers to come down and help out with boat maintenance in the New Year.

As Christmas approaches, all three vessels are now laid up for the winter but work has been going on steadily since the end of the sailing season, and much has been achieved by those on board in preparation for the new season. With 2017 just around the corner, the fun task of getting the boats ready for sea will begin again.

Operations Manager Ben Wheatley said: “Our sea staff will be back at work in early January, and we would be very grateful to any volunteers who can help out from Monday, January 9th. onwards. Please get in touch and we will be glad to book you in.”

There will also be a volunteer weekend coming up in January (14 and 15) for those who cannot make it down to Brixham, due to work commitments.

Ben added: “Most people arrive on the Friday evening — please let us know if you would like dinner on board that night.
“Saturday gives us the chance to do a productive day’s work, followed a good meal and the prospect of visiting one or more local hostelries!
“We work through until about 4.30pm on the Sunday after which people tend to make their way home  — but we are very flexible with accommodation and catering arrangements .
“As usual we are happy to provide food and accommodation on board in exchange for your hard work on our lovely vessels.”

Sailing Voyages Aimed at Young Sailors Posted on

Introduce the young people in your life to the world of traditional sailing…

Next spring we have two great cruises, being run over the same week, which are specifically aimed at getting teenagers and young adults interested in a rewarding new hobby at sea.

First up we have the Small Ships Races — being organised by ASTO (Association of Sail Training Organisations) — on Leader.

The event, which will be held in Tor Bay, will coincide with the gathering of scores of other traditional vessels taking part in the Tall Ships Race from Tor Bay to Portugal.

For the Small Ships Race, the fleet will arrive in Torquay. Leader will take part in the Round-the-Cans Race, then have a couple of days exploring the Devon coastline. This voyage is open to people aged 15-25.

Drone footage of last year’s Small Ships Races, out of Dartmouth, can be viewed here.

During the same week, Golden Vanity will be welcoming children and teenagers on board, with a parent or guardian, for the Parent & Child Cruise.

Pass on some nautical knowledge, have some special time together at sea, while enjoying the spectacle of both the Small Ships and Tall Ships Races. There will also be time to explore some other pretty anchorages and coastal towns during this short break.

Both voyages takes place between Tuesday, April 18 and Friday, April 21. Berths are available for £295 on Golden Vanity and £345 on Leader. Both trips — which begin and end in Brixham,  include all food, drink, bedding, wet weather gear and safety equipment.
