1930 Topsail Schooner

What better way to enjoy harbour life on the South Coast of Cornwall than a day sail or a few nights staying aboard our Topsail Schooner ‘Anny of Charlestown’…

Anny was built in Denmark in 1930 as a fishing vessel, and worked until the 70s, with a period under German control during WWII. In 1972 she was converted into the topsail schooner she is today. Travelling all over the world, including Australia and the Caribbean, Anny was purchased by Charlestown Harbour in 2019 and sailed back from Germany by the Harbour Team.

She is now the Harbour’s flagship, and following a winter refit, Anny will be back out sailing for the season in mid-2024 when she will be running day sails as well as longer voyages.
