Sails provides the opportunity to sail on 'Jez-y-belle' with a
qualified skipper. She is a very pretty locally made traditional two
masted 15 foot Appledore Ford's lugger - white hull with red sails. A
couple, family or small group of friends can enjoy two to three hour
trips around the Torridge Taw Estuary under sails or motor depending on
weather or preference. Trips start and finish on Appledore Quay and fit
in with high tide. A beautiful way to spend a summer morning, afternoon
or evening, pottering up to Bideford Quay, passing Instow, sailing past
Crowe Point, to Fremington Quay, or may be taking in a visit to
Appledore's state of the art Tamar class lifeboat. Depending on the
wind and tide, just have a relaxing time 'going with the flow'.
