Cobh Traditional Sail

The Anna Emily offers the opportunity to enjoy sailing on a traditional boat in Cork Harbour, the 2nd largest natural harbour in the world.

Lovingly restored, the boat is a CT41 sailing ketch built in the Far East in 1976 along the lines of the famous American clipper design. Her sleek looks and Burmese teak taff rails, gunwales and trim give her a traditional look. Her authentic rig and distinctive bowsprit, combined with her powerful auxiliary engine and modern safety equipment make Anna Emily a fabulous vessel on which to sail. She is ketch rigged with three/ four sails depending on conditions.

Her styling and natural feel bring you to a time and place where simple pleasures are easily enjoyed.

Cobh Traditional Sail provide day sails, the duration depending on requirements. They sail from the pontoon at the Quays Bar and Restraunt, Cobh Co Cork. Anna Emily is an ideal base for artists and photographers. Training in art, photography, knot tying and seamanship can also be provided.

Special trips are also available for bird watching and visiting areas of natural beauty.

Below deck the vessel has bunks for six people with a toilet (heads on board ship) and kitchen.

Safety equipment is carried as specified by the DTTAS. She is certified for eight passengers and two crew, a skipper and mate. All guests are encouraged to participate in sailing, to explore the thrill of steering a boat under wind and discover a pleasure that will last as long as your memories.

There are opportunities now available to sail aboard Anna Emily in the summer of 2013. Telephone Jack on 0873340200 or email
