North Coast Adventure

7 nights

Age 18+

No previous experience is required. However, the passage is committing and previous off-shore sailing experiences would make the passages more enjoyable.

Starting from Mallaig, we will be aiming to sail north with time to visit some outstanding anchorages around Gairloch, the Summer Isles, Lochinver and Kinlochbervie before rounding Cape Wrath with time to explore the north coast whilst making progress on a east-bound passage towards Thurso.

The crew change takes place in Thurso with options for a journey south by train.

This is not a specific training course, but an unique opportunity to cruise up the north west of Scotland and around Cape Wrath gaining valuable miles for logbooks. Naturally a variety of yacht skills can be practiced such as pilotage, shaping a course to steer and exploring anchorages.

Start and finish marinas are different, so please take this into consideration when organising your travel plans. Both marinas are serviced by good public transport links.

No previous experience is required. However, the passage is committing and previous off-shore sailing experiences would make the passages more enjoyable.

Both yachts are perfectly suited to the waters around the Clyde and the west coast of Scotland. They provide up to 5 berths for client and all courses and cruises are led by one of our experienced instructors.

Food is provided throughout the cruise. Waterproof sets and lifejackets are on-board each yacht.
