Starting and ending in a couple of different ports, these adventures are the perfect combination of bucket list sailing and sights, and – weather permitting – you’ll have a chance at at a long passage to St Kilda or through the Pentland Firth. Imagine night sailing under the stars!

Accommodation

Your home is a super Beneteau Oceanis (2011).

She has a combination of roller reefing genoa and single line mainsail reefing with lazyjacks ensuring efficient and easy sail handling.

As well as a large, comfortable and practical cockpit she has an uncluttered layout with high quality teak finishes in the cockpit. The twin wheels allow a choice of comfortable helming positions and easy viewing when berthing.

As soon as you step below you cannot fail to be impressed by the light airy atmosphere and the warm feeling provided by the expanses of mahogany.

The accommodation provides comfortable berths for 8 people in cabins.

Other features are a well laid out and practical galley with a huge fridge, 2 heads with full size showers and warm air heating provided throughout the yacht.

The twin chart plotters and state of the art navigation systems make this a very easy boat to sail – uncomplicated yet rewarding.

This yacht is fitted with a HD LED television/DVD player in the saloon!

 

Meals

This voyage is designed for you to take an active role – that means everyone will take turns in cooking (all the menus are planned already and step by step instructions given, so you don’t need to be a masterchef!)

Who is this trip for?

You do not need any previous sailing experience for this trip – it is a ‘hands-on’ sailing trip under the expert guidance of a very experienced Skipper who will adapt to your wishes.

Tour operator

There are few places as wild and unexplored as the open ocean. And if you’re going to explore it you’ll want to do so with an accomplished and experienced skipper alongside you at the helm. The skippers bringing these small group (max 6 guests) ocean voyages to life have at least half a million nautical miles under their belts so you’ll be learning from the best. Think small groups, amazing destinations and incredible ocean experiences. Whether you want the mileage for an RYA Ocean qualification, the thrill of taking a small boat to incredible destinations or the privilege of a sailing masterclass with hugely experienced skippers by your side, they’ll make it happen.
