Appledore Sails - Sailing the Estuary, Bristol Channel and beyond.
Privately charter ‘Patron’, Appledore Sails’ 31 foot skippered yacht, just for yourselves for a short trip over Bideford Bar, for a day trip to Lundy or Clovelly, for a weekend or longer including trips to Wales, Scillies, Ireland or further. Book-a-Berth trips are also available where two or three lone sailors join together for a great sailing experience. Appledore Sails caters for those who have never been on a yacht before through to experienced sailors who wish to build miles and night passages before undertaking their Yachtmaster Exams.
Appledore Sails also provides the opportunity to sail on a very pretty locally made two masted 15 foot traditional Appledore lugger ‘Jez-y-belle’ with a qualified skipper. A couple, family or small group of friends can enjoy two to three hour boat trips around the Torridge Taw Estuary under sails or motor, depending on weather or preference. Trips start and finish on Appledore Quay and fit in with high tide. A beautiful way to spend a summer morning, afternoon or evening, pottering up to Bideford Quay, passing Instow, sailing past Crow Point, may be down to Fremington Quay. Depending on the wind and tide, just have a relaxing time ‘going with the flow’.
Appledore Sails caters to those who wish for a gentle sail as well as those who wish to experience the strong tidal conditions found in the Bristol Channel.
Appledore Sails caters for those who have never been on a sailing boat before and who would like the adventure of sailing the first time, either in the estuary or out to sea, as well catering for experienced sailors.
Appledore Sails caters for those wishing to go out for a few hours, the day, for a few days or longer.
Appledore Sails is the only company on the North Cornwall / Devon / Somerset coast which charters skippered sailing boats.
Appledore Sails hopes to provide you with a unique adventure. We do not crowd as many people onto the boat as possible. Normally this will be a family, a couple, or a small group of friends.
Appledore Sails hopes its guests will want to join in with sailing of the boat, within their abilities. Even first timers can take the tiller and pull a few ropes!
Appledore Sails is elite, is special and provides time and experience for you.
