Take a trip across the Channel with Pascal and sail 200 nautical miles to discover the Scilly Islands, an archipelago to the west of Cornwall in England where time seems to have stood still. Click here to find out more about the islands.
Scilly Isles sailing cruise program:
Begin the sailing cruise from Granville with a Channel crossing amid its remarkable flotillas of cargo ships (a quarter of the world's maritime traffic takes this route every day). The crossing takes 30 hours (variable depending on wind directions) during which you will discover the mysteries and wonders of sailing by night.
The Scilly Isles is a unique archipelago with 5 main islands. We will land at St Mary for a pint of Guinness in the famous ""Mermaid"" pub. You can also go walking on the isle of Tresco, famous for its magnificent tropical garden. Sailing between islands, you will find seals sprawling and cavorting on the rocks. The weather here is surprisingly clement for its location in the middle of the Channel, as the islands have their own micro-climate.
Meet skipper Pascal who offers cruises around the Channel or to the Caribbean. Pascal has been a skipper for over 20 years and is still as passionate about his job as ever. He is a true nature lover and takes great delight in sharing his secret haunts, nautical know-how and sailing tales. If the weather gets rough, worry not, Pascal is used to it and even has a fondness for trickier conditions! Put yourself in the capable hands of Pascal and set sail for the Virgin Islands, the Channel Islands, the Scilly Isles or Ireland and Fastnet!
The ocean bring a total 360° panorama of the self and the world.

The Cruise :On se sent en confiance et en sécurité à bord du voilier de Pascal et avec lui à la barre. Je le recommande vivement !
The Skipper :Pascal est très sympathique, intéressant (a beaucoup bourlingué, bavard et dynamique (voire super-actif, comme il l’avoue ;-)).
