Trinity Sailing to Appear on New ITV Show Posted on

Trinity Sailing’s crew will be featuring on a  new prime-time ITV  show next month.

Television presenter, and comedian, Adrian Edmondson spent a day filming on Trinity’s 1892-built vessel Leader, last summer, for a new television series called Ade at Sea.

Trinity is set to feature on the first 30-minute programme of the series when it airs on Thursday, March 27, at 8.30pm, on ITV.

Ade, and his film crew, spent a sunny day sailing about six miles out to sea beyond Berry Head.

Operations Manager, and Trinity Skipper, Matt Gilchrist, said: “It was a nice day for it and everyone seemed to have a good time. Ade was a nice guy and took a real interest in the history of the vessels, as did his film crew.”

Brixham history and trawler enthusiast Bill Wakeham is also set to feature on the show.

Most people will know Adrian, who is married to fellow comedian Jennifer Saunders, from the cult eighties and nineties television comedies The Young Ones and Bottom. He also won the eight series of Celebrity MasterChef.

Trinity Launch Tall Ships Challenge Offering Young People Voyage of a Lifetime Posted on

Young people across Torbay and Devon are being offered a once in a lifetime voyage, supported by local businesses.

Anyone in the region, aged 18 to 25, is invited to apply for a place on Leader — worth more than £1,200 — which is heading out from Amsterdam on June 29.

The 14-night trip sets sail from Amsterdam, on June 29, before heading to Harlingen, where the vessel will meet up with hundreds of other traditional vessels from across the world, before sailing to Fredrikstad, in Norway.
