Welcome to the historic and enchanting world of traditional sailing through the eyes of one of the most beautiful tall ships gracing Cornish waters (admittedly, we are a little biased).
You are invited to join us and be transported back to the days of traditional sailing for the experience of a lifetime.
Our well trained crew will welcome you on board, whether it be for a day sail, a weekend, or a week long trip. You will be treated to good food, a friendly atmosphere and a unique sailing experience.
In the late 1800’s, early 1900’s, the harbours around the United Kingdom and the Irish Sea were teeming with sailing vessels of all description. Many of these ships were ‘skipper owned’ and made a living carrying cargoes of coal, timber, slates and other bulky commodities between coastal ports. With the march of time these handsome vessels and their way of life have all but disappeared.
Our Topsail schooner, Johanna Lucretia continues the tradition of ‘Block n Tackle’ sailing, her cargoes replaced with passengers and trainees alike, seeking the thrill and experience of sailing on a traditional wooden sailing ship.
Welcome aboard Johanna Lucretia.
