This stunning English peninsula is famous for its relaxed way of life, beautiful coastline and great sailing. Join Eye of the Wind from Cardiff for this Westcountry exploration.

This voyage will be leaving from Cardiff in Wales, around the south-westerly peninsula of England to end up in Plymouth. On the way, likely stops will be Ilfracombe, St Ives, Mount’s Bay, and perhaps Falmouth – recently named the best place to live in the UK! This voyage is an excellent way to discover the Cornish coast and its iconic seaside towns. From beautiful Falmouth, Eye of the Wind may sail past medieval harbours on the southwest coast of England. Stopping at ports such as Fowey and Charlestown, both featured in the hit TV show Poldark, there is plenty to discover on land and at sea. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and basking sharks, as well as a huge variety of seabirds.

This is a unique sailing area for Eye of the Wind, and is one of her skipper’s favourite places to sail.

With incredible amounts of character, Eye of the Wind has all the modern amenities and an authentic interior, with a teak maritime décor. Oozing with maritime history, the opportunity to sail on Eye of the Wind is one in a lifetime. This beautiful ship is as eye-catching as they get and she has even featured in several movies, including White Squall, due to her breath-taking appearance as a 1911 brig.

This windjammer offers luxurious holidays on board, cruising some of the most stunning locations in the world.

Although the ship has a large, capable engine, traditional sailing is naturally the preferred mode of travel so there is plenty to get stuck into on deck. The crew are extremely experienced and ready to teach you the workings of a classic tall ship, so no prior knowledge is necessary. Join the crew at any number of the large maritime festivals they appear at, cruise the European coast, or relish some winter sun and climb aboard for their voyages in the Caribbean – including a transatlantic crossing back from the Caribbean to Portugal.

Thanks to the 6 luxurious cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, Eye of the Wind can sleep a total of 16 guests ensuring ocean passages can be travelled in true comfort. A large dining area, library and sun deck offer a multitude of different spaces to unwind and to get to know your fellow guests and crew.
