A great opportunity to join the crew of a class B tall ship and enjoy a fantastic festival in Brittany.

Excelsior continues its tradition of regular attendance at the Paimpol “Festival du Chant du Marin” For many the expedition across the Channel to to northern France is one of the highlights of the Excelsior Sailing season.

Join us in Portsmouth aboard Excelsior our fully authentic and traditionally rigged sailing smack for a voyage via the Channel Islands to France arriving at the Paimpol Festival.

The Paimpol Festival features over 200 boats in the harbour at Paimpol and a host of music from across the world. Be ready to enjoy world and Breton music, sea shanties, brass bands, bagadoù and festoù-noz, exhibitions and local product tasting.

Enjoy the festival taking full advantage of your berth aboard the ship before your return voyage again via the Channel islands to Portsmouth.
