New Adventure Voyages on Golden Vanity
TWO new voyages have been added to Golden Vanity’s busy 2019 schedule aimed at adults looking for some adventure this summer.
The South West is famed for its spectacular coastline, charming harbours, peaceful creeks and isolated coves and beaches. What better way to explore them than on board Golden Vanity. Built in 1908 for the renowned marine artist Arthur Briscoe she is the smallest of the original Brixham Trawlers — meaning she can get in to some great places inaccessible on larger vessels.
Vanity’s new Skipper, Jim Bonney, will be leading two Adult Adventure Weeks where guests can learn to sail — or just enjoy being guided by the crew — as you explore shores, coves and creeks that can’t really be explored any other way. Leave your Wi-Fi behind, pack a book, and a join us for an action-packed week.
Itineraries vary but the options are wide: Sail, swim, walk, scramble, explore. Spend evenings and sunsets on the beaches no one else can get too. Jim’s already planning dinner cooked on the embers of a drift wood fire. Bring your paddleboard, your kayak, your walking boots, your sketch pad… whatever you enjoy doing out doors, do it from a 111-year-old vessel.
Jim is an ex-Royal Marines Officer and became the first Commando to return to operational service as an amputee after he fell more than a 1,000ft on a training exercise. He is joined by Mate Ida Schelhase Langenskov, the current coxswain of the Danish Atlantic Challenge crew
