Olga is a beautiful original Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter - built for racing out to big ships back in 1909. This means that she is sleek and fast even though she is over 100 years old!

Olga is laid out almost exactly as she would have been originally, both on deck and down below. On deck she has a big tiller for steering and everything to control the sails is manual! This means that everyone on board needs to work together to get Olga sailing to the best of her ability. 

Down below, Olga is immaculately finished. She has a forward compartment with 6 beds, the galley and a sail store. Then in the main compartment, there are 4 beds plus the dining table. Then further back there is a toilet, wet locker, chart table, skippers bunk and engine room!
