1908 Working Boat Built for an Artist
Golden Vanity was built in Brixham for the artist Arthur Briscoe.
Arthur Briscoe sketches shows Brixham Trawlers at anchor drying sails and the second shows men hauling on the fishing net, that was real hard work. Less well known he sailed on tall ships and painted sailors working in huge seas and aloft, battling with canvas.
Come and Paint on Golden Vanity
Art and Sailing voyages were resurrected on Golden Vanity with skipper and artist Toni Knights in 2016. Toni is well known in Brixham as working trawlerman, Brixham sailing trawler skipper, ex lifeboat coxswain and maritime artist. Whether you love sketching or painting or just want to sail with a great character like Toni on a little gaffer for a change, then this will be a great 3 days.
