Grayhound

Join us for a Channel Crossing


 
 

 
Grayhound is a family story, built by its captain,, Marcus and Freya Pomeroy in 2010, on the plans of a former three-masted lugger. They were then joined by their son Malachi, born during the project. Grayhound measures 21 meters at the hull. She regularly makes crossings between Cornwall and Brittany.
