Sustainable Shipping

Sustainable Shipping on Grayhound offers you a unique experience to sail on a traditional 18th Century Lugger, delivering up to 4.5 tonnes of organic French wine and West Country ale under sail to and fro across the Channel every summer. You will be hand loading the boxes right into the hold. Becoming a 18th century cargo crew is a fun working holiday, you will be busy and expected to join in many tasks like traditional ship maintenance, splicing and deck scrubbing as well as sailing the ship and loading the cargo. You do not need to have stepped on a ship before or have any sailing experience. You will need to have a good level of fitness, be keen to muck in and learn new skills. If what you are looking for is genuine adventure then you will like what we are offering. Sailing sustainable cargo reduces damage to the environment and is a rewarding and exciting movement happening right now.
