Join Unity for an all-inclusive sailing holiday in Cornwall while enjoying the Sea, Salts and Sail Festival in Mousehole for a weekend of classic sailing, beautiful boats and merriment.

Flexible Sailing

No experience is needed to climb aboard! Unity’s professional and experienced crew will teach you all you need to know. Hoist her sails, take the helm, try your hand at navigation or just kick back, relax, and take in the views – the choice is yours.

Sea Salts and Sails

This weekend sees the bi-annual Sea, Salts and Sail Festival in the traditional fishing village of Mousehole in Cornwall. Scores of historic vessels assemble in and around the picturesque harbour to celebrate Cornwall’s rich maritime heritage. This unique event recreates the sights, sounds and smells of a bygone era when Tom Bawcock and his famous Mousehole Cat would have fished these waters. Wooden hulls, spars, topsails and canvas are framed against the majestic beauty of Mounts Bay, transporting visitors back in time.

Classic boats from the Cornish coast and as far as Brittany flock to this waterside village making for a spectacular maritime weekend re-creating the sights and smells of what was once so important to this vibrant fishing port. Sail with these beautiful vessel’s aboard Pellew for a weekend of friendly racing and an impressive Parade of Sail, a sight that stirs the heart of even the most hardened landlubber. A list of the boats attending can be found here.

On land sees Mousehole come alive with a weekend full of musical entertainment and merriment with food and market stalls lining the harbour walls. A full entertainment list can be found here.  There’s poetry, storytelling, wood and stone-carving and young mariners can also make traditional craft models and then race them in the harbour water – an event that causes much fun, noise and laughter. A beautifully sourced photographic display also captures village life from the 1800s to the present day.

Unity

Guest berths: 4 Rig: Pilot Cutter

Unity is a newly built Westcountry cutter, handcrafted in Cornwall and launched in 2016.

Built and owned by Jon Bray, Unity has been designed to take small groups with no sailing experience. She is perfect for small families who want to get to grips with sailing and life on the open water.

Her rig is based on that of a Pilot cutter so she is quick and easily handled while maintaining optimum safety for her guests aboard.

Above decks, she has a sunken cockpit and plenty of open deck space. Perfect if you want to anchor up and sit back with a book or watch the sun go down.

Below decks, she has been fitted to a high standard and has one double berth and two twin bunk berths in the fore cabin while the crew sleep in the aft. A generous saloon and galley give plenty of space for relaxing and feasting on home-cooked meals after an exhilarating day of sailing.

For summer 2021, Unity is offering private charter holidays for small families, couples or small groups for short breaks or week-long sailing holidays exploring the coasts of Cornwall.
