We are excited to announce that this summer we will be welcoming Jess Clay, National historic Ships “Shipshape” trainee onto Pellew as the deckhand. This fantastic scheme perfectly compliment one of the main aims of the Falmouth Pilot Cutter CIC which is to nurture and train young people in the art of shipbuilding and the sailing of traditional vessels, and create a new generation with skills and knowledge of the seas.
Jess is thoroughly passionate about sailing and wooden boats in particular. Having sailed tall ships Morgenster two years ago she has passionately pursued sailing since then. Jess is writing a blog about her time in the ship shape program which are well worth a read. Read her blog here.
Welcome to the team Jess!
