Join Bessie Ellen as she spends her 2024 season sailing around the British Isles to celebrate 120 years of heritage sailing. Built-in 1904 and meticulously restored, Bessie Ellen is a testament to the golden age of maritime exploration, brimming with captivating tales from the past. 

Split into fourteen legs, she will encompass the landscapes and seafaring heritage of the UK, from the enchanting coasts of Cornwall to the rugged shores of Wales and Scotland, including the mystical Orkney Islands and back down the East Coast. As part of this magnificent journey, she will also celebrate the esteemed French maritime festival of Brest before returning to Cornwall and the breathtaking Isles of Scilly.

This leg is from Gloucester Docks to Milford Haven where you can immerse yourself in a hands-on sailing experience that will transport you back to a bygone era. Discover the rich history of this remarkable vessel, take the helm, and learn the art of hoisting the sails with traditional rope work. Engage in the fascinating practice of celestial navigation, allowing you to connect with the ancient methods of guiding a ship through the stars.
