Bristol Pilot Cutter Repairs 2009

pegasus2Pegasus with damage to aft port quarterWhile with us Jason Virok also carried out repairs to Pegasus, a 60ft, Bristol Pilot Cutter built by the Bristol Classic Boat Company 2007/2008 for The Island Trust, an Exeter based Charity of 36 years. The damage is to the aft port quarter bulwark.

The Trust has been sending disadvantaged young people sailing, both in dinghies and off shore.


Pegasus, which follows in a long line of the famous Bristol Pilot Cutters is extremely pretty and fast, having won one leg of the Tall Ships Race in her class, as well as coming second overall last summer.

The Trust continues to send beneficiaries dinghy sailing in Salcombe based on the converted Mersey Ferry, the Egremont, which is owned by the Island Cruising Club.
