Sail from Falmouth to join the most anticipated French maritime festivals of the sailing calendar – Brest and Douarnenez.

This 13 day offshore sailing sees pilot cutter Pilgrim sail from the maritime port of Falmouth in Cornwall, swapping one Celtic coast for another, arriving on the French coast in time for the much anticipated Brest International Maritime Festival.

This is the first time in eight years that Brest Festival has run due to Covid restrictions so grab your berth fast! This voyage sees you enjoy not one but two French Maritime Festivals and if anyone knows how to combine sailing, merriment and music for a holiday to remember – it’s definitely the French! Although previous experience is not mandatory, some time on the water and/or a love for adventure is a must.
