Regattas, Festivals & Adventures

As well as our regular cruising programme, all three vessels will be taking part in a range of races, festivals and regattas taking place across the 2019 season.


We have provided a brief description of what to expect with each voyage, but please feel free to give our office team a call, for more information, on 01803 88 33 55.

West Coast Adventure

This is always a popular trip and it’s east to see why. Join Leader on the Scottish West Coast and set sail for Cornwall, with potential stops in Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, Eire, Wales, and the Scillies — this is a true voyage of discovery spread over 10 days. (Voyage starts in Oban and ends in Falmouth).

Dartmouth Regatta

Since 1834 The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta has become a must on many yachting calendars. The River Dart’s natural deep harbour, with brightly-coloured houses tumbling down its steeply sloping hillsides, is a great place to be — in the thick of the action. Expect spectacular air displays, on-shore live music, food stalls, on-water displays, and elaborate fireworks displays.


There are two options to join us this year, on both Leader and Provident, which will — along with a host of other tall ships and traditional vessels — be taking part in a Parade of Sail during the festival.


If you decide to join on Leader, your visit will come at the end of a six-night Cornwall and Devon cruise, starting and departing in Brixham. Our Provident voyage ends with the regatta, as part of an eight-night extended voyage to Brittany and The Channel Islands.
