Brittany & The South West

From our home port, in Brixham, we are ideally situated to explore this superb cruising area, whether you stay this side of the Channel and explore the best of Devon and Cornwall or we hop across to Brittany and The Channel Islands.

 

We avoid fixed itineraries and work with the weather, to make the most of your time on board with us. No matter where you end up on your adventure, you will experience all the elements which make a Trinity cruise so special – fantastic places, great food, good company, and true relaxation.

 

As with all of our cruises, you will get plenty of time to go ashore and explore each destination while also making sure you get plenty of time at sea on our fleet of historic vessels.

Our voyages to Brittany are often broken up with a stopover in The Channel Islands. Enjoy the peace and quiet on Sark, the golden sandy beaches on Herm, or the hustle and bustle of life in St Peter Port, in Guernsey. It is an area spoilt with interesting harbours and quiet anchorages.

 

A short sail away lies the glorious Brittany coastline offering a variety of historic ports, quiet bays and intriguing offshore islands. Expect spectacular scenery, a mild climate, welcoming bakeries, thriving markets, quaint bars and first-class restaurants.

 

The Devon and Cornish coast offers and abundance of magical stopovers in their own right. There are endless quiet coves, pretty anchorages, sandy beaches, picturesque harbour towns, and secret creeks — many of which are only known by Trinity’s Skippers and the locals.

 

*Brixham Heritage Regatta/Binic La Morue en Fête (Cod Festival).

Two great maritime events for the price of one. Start your 10-night break by competing on Provident in a ‘race’ for the King’s Cup, in Brixham, and enjoy the festivities ashore — as part of BrixFest — before setting sail across the Channel for a week of exploration and adventure, culminating with a visit to La Morue en Fête. Provident has been especially invited to attend, so will be the star attraction. Maritime and cultural activities come together in a festive atmosphere with parades of old sailing ships, music, entertainment, crafts, exhibitions, and seafood. Late May is a great time to visit Brittany as we can make use of the long days, short nights, and often great weather.

 

*Paimpol 2019

Every two years the quayside, in Paimpol, is transformed in to a rustic and vibrant festival for music lovers from across the globe. Originally devoted to sea shanties, the event has expanded and widened its scope. It has retained the original charm with a fresh twist, offering the best in street food, on-shore entertainment and a world-class collection of fine vessels. We will be stopping off for a few days as part an extended Brittany cruise. (Voyage starts and ends in Brixham).

 

*Extended 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. At the end of extended voyage, Provident will — along with a host of other tall ships and traditional vessels — be taking part in a Parade of Sail during the festival as part of an eight-night extended voyage to Brittany and The Channel Islands.
