Join us for our 2019 ocean sailing challenge. Start the trip off when you join the yacht on Scotland’s glorious west coast and the port of Oban. Perhaps you can enjoy the tranquil pace of an amazing train journey to join the yacht. Once onboard and with familiarisarion and safety briefs to start your adventure it won’t be long before we head out for some crew training on our Ocean sailing yacht. With final training done while underway it will be all systems go to head out into the North Atlantic ocean.
Watching the weather carefully your skipper will make the decision on when it is best to head out into the North Atlantic to ensure the optimal routing and conditions. Perhaps we may even be able to spend some time in the amazing Outer Hebrides before hitting the Ocean.
Spending between 3 and 5 days crossing the ocean the challenge will finish as we arrive at the Icelandic capital Reykjavik. Of course, hopeful of a fast passage there may be time to explore a local Fjord, spending a night at Anchor or enjoy an isolated Hot Tub experience on a deserted beach.
