The History and Restoration of Vigilance with Colin Brokenshire

May 13, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The restored sailing trawler Vigilance BM76 is a piece of living Brixham history. Built in Brixham in 1926, she worked with the local fishing fleet before seeing war service as a barrage balloon mooring vessel. Since then Vigilance has been used as a gentleman’s yacht, film vessel, charter boat and adventure training craft in France, the Faeroe Islands, Ireland and the Isle of Man. She has now returned to her home port and is proudly owned, maintained and sailed by Brixham people. Hear all about her history and restoration from one of the crew.
