£40 per person. In aid of the Addington Fund. Embark at 8.00am and return at 8.00pm. To and from Bideford. A full day out.

We have been allocated places on this fantastic trip again this year. The price is still £40 and it is a high-tide sailing so you get a full day. This is going to be a popular trip so book early!

Lundy is a 1050 acre island farm with unique holiday cottages. Abundance of wildlife, marine and terrestrial. Marisco Tavern on Lundy provides good food, ales and wine.

On board the Oldenburg there are refreshments available and there will be an auction on the return journey.

This trip is on a Wednesday. The best place to park is the riverside longstay car park (£3 all day).

Sorry no dogs allowed.

In the event of less calm waters we shall tour the lower reaches of the Taw and Torridge, home to Tarka the Otter. This is a private charter so tickets are not transferable to scheduled sailings.
