What Pegasus does Best
Pegasus was built from new as a youth sail training vessel that would be both exciting and seaworthy for young crews, but also be eye catching enough to turn heads at every port she graced. Since 2008 she has given many young people a great sense of pride to be sailing and navigating such a good looking vessel. Many adult spectators have watched he sail past with envy, but now you can sail on her for a few choice events for adult crew with plenty of hands on sailing.
Her incredibly patient skipper Craig and mate Dan look forward to offering these adventure cruises, with plenty of opportunity to really showcase what Pegasus can do, as a sabbatical from their busy youth work schedule. As with most sail training skippers that work with teenagers and young people with disabilities and special needs, they are excellent and inventive in how they communicate and teach sailing. If you want a well organised deck with a crew very used to explaining the ropes and manoeuvres, then Pegasus would be a great choice to race on or go on your first offshore passage.
Folk Boat with Phil Beer
She has proven herself as a spacious and elegant cruising boat too, with her 'Folk Boat' charters where famous folk singer and instrumentalist Phil Beer ('Show of Hands') hired Pegasus for several weeks a year to run music workshops with many a cracking music session below decks.
We think here adult cruises will be like 'gold dust' so don't leave it too late to book
