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.
The Grayhound lugger is one of the main actors of the "Channel Sail Route" European project.
