Round Britain 2019 – Plymouth to Brixham

Round Britain 2019 – Plymouth to Brixham

The final leg of the Premier Sailing Round Britain cruise for Macmillan Cancer Support begins with a trip along the Devonshire coast from Plymouth to Brixham, and what a day to get things started! As our new crews get to know each other they are treated to the most perfect conditions you can have. Beautiful blue waters and fair winds are a sailor’s dream and they were enjoyed to the full on an exhilarating day.

Ashanti and Clearlake II hurtled through the water toward the fishing town of Brixham, whose harbour boasts a replica of Sir Francis Drake’s famous ship The Golden Hind. But before they reach it, our skippers needed to lead their vessels and crews out to sea in order to avoid the many rocky outcrops that line the coast.

Best steer clear of this one!

On arrival at Brixham, both vessels were skilfully motored through the marina to their berths for the night, where our crews could dine together and get to know each other a little more before setting off again the next day.
