Adventure sailing and cargo under sail
The story of S/V Grayhound – a replica 1776 Cornish Privateer Lugger. 2012-1018
Grayhound was built using traditional methods in Millbrook, Cornwall in 2012. From our Atlantic adventures of 2014 to our sail cargo business of today, we encourage families and young professionals to sail with us providing a low carbon alternative to traditional cargo transport. We are part of a sailing alliance, TOWT, using the power of wind for low carbon cargo transport, providing a sailing cargo delivery service between France , Portugal and the UK – beer, wine, rum, whiskey, tea and the occasional sofa.
We are a sustainable, innovative and ecological business model that we hope will be the model for future cargo transport. We are keen to take novices sailing, to teach to explain and involve how we work and sail our ship. We offer Channel sailing and ocean passages for the adventurous. For those who want up to 10 days at sea in a watch system. We sail with five professional crew Skipper, cook , 2 watch leaders and a deckhand. As guest crew you work hard with the professional crew to sail and navigate.
