Appledore Sails offers three types of sailing:

Short trips around the picturesque Torridge Taw Estuary just for yourselves on an Appledore built two masted traditional lugger, 'Jez-y-belle'.

Privately charter 'Patron', a 31 foot skippered yacht, for short trips, for a day trip to Lundy or Clovelly, for a weekend or longer.

Hire a RYA qualified commercial offshore yacht master - to move your boat, for training, or to skipper your own charter holiday.

Provision of yachtmaster skipper....

Appledore Sails can provide a RYA qualified off shore yacht master skipper, with or without crew, who will move your boat from one destination to another for you, either in the UK or overseas.

If you would like to charter your own boat, anywhere in the world, but are not happy to take total command and responsibility, Appledore Sails can provide a RYA qualified off shore yachtmaster skipper to help you, and to provide hands on training as required. Appledore Sails can advise about the type of boat and location to hire a boat from. Remember, the skipper will need his / her own cabin when booking the boat.

If you have recently bought your own boat and want some hands on training to gain confidence in sailing her, Appledore Sails can provide a RYA qualified off shore yachtmaster to do this.


What guests say:

I really enjoyed sailing down to Bideford, and around the estuary in Jez-y-belle. A beautiful, traditional little boat, sailing in her was a reminder of times past, a really memorable experience.

(Estuary Trip)

We really enjoyed our trip over the bar in Patron - lovely boat, skipper and place - many thanks for the day and the memory, and looking forward to next time!
