T.S. Pelican - Voyages of Discovery
Published on 19 Apr 10
In 2010 The Tall Ship Pelican will be setting sail with a packed programme of exciting adventures.
The TS Pelican’s home port of Weymouth is located on the beautiful Jurassic Coast which stretches from Exmouth, Devon through to Swanage, Dorset, England’s first natural World Heritage Site. All voyages not only take in the breathtaking beauty of the coastline but will also view the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy which will host the 2012 Olympic Sailing competition. All voyages aboard the Pelican are one of challenge and discovery as well as relaxation and good living. Many Corporate events and team building courses are planned during the year; however, adventure and fun are at the heart of what Pelican offers.
The traditional square rigger TS Pelican, privately owned and now newly restored, captures the true spirit and soul of a small and elegant clipper designed for adventure. Setting eleven sails as a ‘Mainmast Barquentine’ make her lively and fast both on and off the wind. The 2010 programme includes a variety of day sails, channel voyages and the Tall Ships Races. Sail away for a day or a lifetime aboard the tall ship TS Pelican.
David (Ben) Swain, 2nd Mate said “The Pelican specializes in long haul voyages enabling individuals to develop their talents and realize their aspirations in an environment of challenge, excitement and teamwork. Opportunities to work towards RYA qualifications are also possible, plus the ship is a registered charity which offers sailing opportunities for all.”
