Classic Sailing was founded in 1996 by Adam and Debbie Purser with the launch of a newly built pilot cutter ‘Eve of St Mawes’. Our company ethos was developed initially through the themed holidays we created for ‘Eve’ in Cornwall. Since then we have extended the concept of ‘hands on’ adventures to a wide range of traditional craft and tall ships around the world.
The fleet we offer today share the Classic Sailing ethos but each vessel has its own distinctive style of adventure sailing. Each skipper is your expert local guide on the history of his or her vessel, the wildlife you see, and the culture of the communities you meet.... Read More

My name is Ron and together with my wife we are regular visitors of the Southern Hebrides. Although Islay and Jura are often our main reasons for visiting this part of Scotland, we always try to include other islands in our itinerary.
