Pilot Cutter Review
Join us onboard Olga in the Pilot Cutter Review 2020 - a spectacular event where over a dozen pilots cutters gather to sail, race and socialise together!
In it's 15th year, the Pilot Cutter Review is a one of its kind event where Pilot Cutters - old and new - meet up for a whole weekend of festivities together. This is the first time in her history that Olga is participating fully in the Review and we are really exited to see how she will fare amongst her fellow Pilot Cutters!
The fun starts on the Thursday evening, when all the boats and crews arrive in Fowey and spend the evening together. Friday morning is quite a sight, with all the boats sailing over the start line in the River Fowey and heading down towards Falmouth in a passage race. Saturday and Sunday see round the cans racing in the River Fal during the day and socialising with fellow crews in the evenings. The Pilot Cutter Review really is one of the most fun sailing weekends of the year!
The Best Bits!
Passage Race: Sail from Fowey to Falmouth alongside a dozen other pilot cutters
Round the cans: Race in close quarters in the stunning Fal river
Evenings socialising : Discuss the days racing and the friendly rivalry over a BBQ ashore
Pilot Cutter Community: Get to know new people and discover some beautiful boats
What to expect
All voyages on board our boats are completely hands-on! Whether you are an experienced sailor or a complete beginner, the intention is that everybody onboard becomes an active crew member and works together to sail Olga.
Olga's layout is typical of an original pilot cutter with a stunning wood interior. On going below decks, there is a short corridor to the communal saloon area. Her accommodation consists of 6 guest bunks - 4 in a shared space up forward and 2 at either side of the saloon. There is one heads for all to share.
Living on board Olga can be cosy with lots on board, but it a great way to bond with your crewmates.

Not included is the cost of travel to and from Olga at the beginning and end of the voyage, travel insurance, alcoholic drinks, towels and bed linen.
