Our Maiden Voyage

On Thursday we sailed around to Dartmouth in Devon. It was a 6 hr passage from Plymouth, we motored in flat calm seas until we got to Start point light house, a gentle breeze picked up . We had Veracity’s sails with us and some spare jibs we managed to rig together a decent enough rig to push Grayhound along. The picture shows us sailing into the River Dart. The castle let off their cannons and we gave them a broadside back. It was a fantastic moment for us to arrive back in Dartmouth .It had been 16 months since we left, on Marcus’ little Lugger Veracity , Freya with a bump, both heading off to Millbrook to build our dream. Now here we are at anchor,  a toddler crawling around the deck and our beautiful 18th century vessel stunning the crowds. We will be here for Regatta this weekend alongside the town quay wall Thursday 30th – Sunday 2nd Don’t forget to book your day sail they are going fast !!!!! Look at...

The launch pictures

The Launch was a fantastic event, there were so many of you there!!!! Thank you to everybody for coming a willing Grayhound into the creek. Here are a few ics that capture the day. Pictures by Classic Sailing, Rosanna Shakerley, Bill Booth and Freya       “Watching the launch of Grayhound felt like being part of a film…yet this was real and that was what made her launch one of the most memorable experiences ever. We were so pleased to make a detour on our trip down to North Cornwall to see you guys make your dream come true. Inspiring, uplifting and without a doubt…one day we just HAVE to take a journey on Grayhound now. Thrilled to have shown our little boys such an amazing sight. As a family we have just taken up sailing…and our dream is to sail competently on warm waters one day and stay onboard a chartered yacht. It may not be as big a dream as yours..but it inspired us to make it happen even stronger. We wish you all the very best.”   Anita...
