Sail the English Channel from Plymouth, stopping off at the smaller islands off France and heading east to Brest on this exciting tall ship Channel crossing.

Sail with Eye of the Wind as she leaves Plymouth, setting the sails out to open waters. Once at sea, this voyage will take on the Channel, and enjoy the trade winds that rush between England and mainland Europe.

Depending on wind speeds and the weather, Eye of the Wind’s next stop may be Roscoff – a great destination for ship spotters, before sailing out to the western islands of Brittany. After stopping at these small islands, Eye of the Wind will then head toward mainland France before finally anchoring in Brest.

This is a very relaxed sailing holiday, spent mingling between French and British culture – all butter croissants for breakfast and cosy pubs sipping ale in the evening. These are amazing sailing grounds and beautiful scenery – what’s not to love?

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.
