This weekend in Cornwall is the 15th Pilot Cutter Review from Classic Sailing, starting with the Fowey to St Mawes passage race on Friday. An incredible spectacle for anyone ashore or afloat, the event attracts pilot cutters old and new. There’s even a rumour the sun might make an appearance! Here’s where you can see them and when:
