Sail training voyage on Pegasus - Sunday July 26th - Friday July 31st 2015

Plymouth to Plymouth – explore the south coast and beyond

Pegasus is a 74 ft pilot cutter operated by The Island (Cutter) Trust . Built for sail training and launched in 2009, Pegasus is seaworthy and fast. Toddbrook sailing club has booked 6 places on Pegasus for young people to sail together to learn and have fun sailing. No previous sailing experience is necessary, just a sense of adventure. As in previous years, we hope that sailors will be from different sailing clubs and none. Two other young people (both girls) are already booked on this trip.

There will be a professional skipper and first mate.

The cost is £400

Let me know as soon as possible if you are interested.

Walk party 2015
Walk Footpath 2015
Saturday January 3rd 2015 club walk


Thanks Dave for organising a really good walk including hot home made soup and sandwiches at a welcoming farm cafe. Where better to walk than to the source of Toddbrook itself. It was almost snowing so Ivan and Christine took a shorter route. A classic January walk.


• Club camping trip to Bala July 12/13th was warm, sunny and windy!
• Cruising trip to Largs August 22-26th was warm, sunny and windy!

Junior 12 hour race

• Both teams did well. The GP team was 3rd overall.

Southport 24 hour race
