Pegasus is based on the design of the Bristol Channel Pilot Cutter. She is owned by a childrens’ sailing charity, The Island Trust, established in 1973, www.theislandtrust.org.uk. She was built specifically as a Sail Training Vessel to give disadvantaged and disabled young people the opportunity to experience the adventure of offshore sailing. Her home port is Salcombe in Devon, U.K. and she is operated by Island (Cutter) Ltd, www.islandcutter.co.uk. Pegasus is available for charter by schools and youth groups, and also in the summer we provide working holidays for adults, taking part in traditional boat and music festivals across the south coast of the UK, in Brittany, and the Channel Islands.
