Sustainable Shipping

Sustainable Shipping

Sustainable Shipping  of Cargo offers a unique experience to sail on a traditional 18th Century Lugger, delivering up to 4.5 tonnes of Breton and West Country produce under sail to and fro across the Channel. You will be hand loading boxes of Ale, vegetables, wine, oats and buckwheat. Becoming a 18th century cargo crew will be hard work, you will be busy and expected to join in many tasks like traditional ship maintenance, splicing, cooking, cleaning and deck scrubbing as well as sailing the ship. You do not need to have stepped on a ship before or have any sailing experience. You will need to have a good level of fitness, be keen to muck in and learn new skills. It may be grueling, you may get exhausted and even sea sick. If what you are looking for is genuine adventure then you will like what we are offering. Sailing offers sustainable cargo shipment which reduces damage to the environment and is a rewarding and exciting movement happening right now.

Sail & explore in Cornwall

In 2016 we are offering more of our popular, hands on, adventure sailing experiences cruising around the beautiful and timeless Isles of Scilly. We believe that involving people is the way forward so what ever voyage you sail on you will be expected to help sail the vessel. We have a full time cook and a professional crew. Keeping you safe and allowing you to be hands on working the vessel is our priority. We have only ever had positive feedback from our voyage crews about us, our family, our approach, our food and our much loved sailing Lugger. These voyages are comfortable, well catered and lots of attentive tutorial is given. Quiet anchorages, small fishing villages, isolated bays and stunning scenery are all found in the areas we sail. You do not need to have ever been sailing before to enjoy one of these voyages you just need a spirit of adventure.
