1930 Topsail Schooner

What better way to explore the rugged and stunning South Coast of Cornwall than with a traditional sailing experience aboard our Topsail Schooner ‘Anny of Charlestown’…

Day trips from Charlestown Harbour aboard Anny give a unique perspective on the Cornish Coastline and a fantastic day out. For a more immersive experience, we also run residential voyages around the South Coast and beyond!

COVID-19 update: Anny’s 2020 sailing season had to be drastically reduced due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We have now got a Coronavirus day-sail safety policy in place, so are able to run a short series of trips in September with reduced numbers. We will also be releasing our 2021 sailing schedule as soon as possible.  For anyone holding a day-sail gift ticket, they will remain valid for 3 years from the date of purchase. Plenty of time to get out sailing!


Day Sails

A transfer boat will take you out to the ship on her mooring, and the crew will pick the best cruising route to fit in as much sailing as possible, before bringing you back to the Harbour. Day sailors can get involved and help our professional crew set sails and perform manoeuvres, or just sit back and enjoy the spectacle!

There are 3-hour trips or 6-hour trips to choose from, and the day sails are available for adults and children over the age of 10. All safety equipment is provided on board. Given our increased safety measures to protect crew and guests from Coronavirus, we will request that you read and sign a Day Sail Policy document at the time of booking. This ensures that you are aware of our safety measures and your responsibilities in advance of stepping aboard.
