If you fancy a day out on a new (2009) Bristol Pilot Cutter then this might interest you:-

They are charging £50 per day to sail on her before Christmas. I'm going to give it a go - just to get some gaffer sailing experience before Zephyr is ready for re-launch.

Morwenna does look magnificent.

The boat looks fantastic. Hope she sails as well as a CapeCutter19 :rolleyes:

Take a few pics, and let us see them please.

Enjoy

Hi Dennis

I will. Zephyr has a Twitter account at http://www.twitter.com/yachtzephyr I'll post some to there during the weekend. Just click that link to see what I'm up to.

I can recommend a trip on Morwenna. I joined her in The Royal Clarence Marina, Gosport on Friday evening, and on Saturday we sailed around to Swanwick Marina on the Hamble River. Conditions were sunny with a nice breeze in the morning. Later on it dropped away, and as the sun fell it became very cold. On Sunday we had much more wind and sailed to Lymington.

I was acting as crew for a guy on his Yachtmaster training. I may go again for his exam in December.

Jim, Morwenna's full time skipper, was superb. I learned a lot from him and look forward to putting this newly gained knowledge into practice with Zephyr.
