The Grayhound Lugger has been created with our energy, passion and a lot of hard work and we believe she is a superb new vessel that will sail and work in a simple, efficient and exciting way. We, Marcus and Freya invite you to sail on her and explore with us as we take her around the Atlantic in 2013/14.
From passage making to island hopping all our voyages are different. Sailing across an ocean can be one of life’s true escapes and a real change of pace is needed but its not for everyone. We love having families aboard and cater for them brilliantly. We take up to eight passengers. You can book as a group of eight, a family or as individuals and couples.

Remember that we are an adventure sailing company and we live onboard with our little boy Malachi. This is our business but it is also our home life. When you sail with us you sail as we sail and you live as we live. We sail and live with spirit. We try to make our floating world adapt to our surroundings and believe approaching places under sail is not only rewarding for us but appreciated by the locals.
You can book your berth on the Grayhound through our booking agency Classic Sailing.
Please email us direct if you are interested in potential bookings for film hire, corporate days, wedding receptions and children’s pirate parties. firstname.lastname@example.org
When most UK vessels finish sailing for the season we will be heading south for the sun.
In October we will head across to Porto Santo and Madeira. We love these islands, it is the first taste of the exotic, with amazing produce and staggering scenery.
Towards the end of October we head for Lanzarote and the Canary Islands for a brief stay, we will be running a couple of voyages around the Canaries for those who want some winter sunny sailing.
November ends with a passage even further south to the wonderful Cape Verdes. For a taste of Africa and the tropics. The Cape Verde islands stand alone as a destination, still quite remote and quiet, we plan to do ten day island hopping voyage here. THE ATLANTIC CROSSING will depart at the end of December. It will be advertised as a 3 week passage starting in the Cape Verdes and ending in Barbados. The passage is 2000 nautical miles and should take us 2 weeks to sail, so we will leave promptly and hopefully have time to soak up some Caribbean Sun and Rum on arrival before our crew depart. click here to view all our Ocean Passage schedules.
We can’t wait to show off the Grayhound to the folk over there. We will be offering passages through the Lesser Antilles ending in Antigua for the Classic Regatta week, one of the high lights of the year ! View our Caribbean schedule here
May 2014 will see us heading north to higher latitudes, to the Azores archipelago. A chance to experience a longer ocean passage perfect for getting those sea miles and Sextant sights, or just escaping from the world.
Marcus and I fell in love in the Azores a place which is dear to our hearts. We will be spending some weeks voyaging around the islands……
again the produce is wonderful , thermal waterfalls , volcanoes and whales .
A final passage north will see us sailing back into a Cornish summer , in July 2014. In August we will be offering two weeks sailing in the West Country with the aim of reaching the Isles of Scilly. Grayhound will also be taking part in the Tall Ships Regatta 2014 from Falmouth to Greenwich at the end of August. Full details, dates and prices will be online very soon.
We look forward to sailing with you in 2013/14.
