Themed Skippered Cruises for 2022

We offer a range of themed chartered yacht cruises through the season, working to a planned itinerary with flexibility built in to allow for prevailing conditions. 

Themed Skippered Cruises 2022

Scottish Islands 3 Peaks Race

 20th to 24th May 2022

 Fully Booked  

We will take part in the SIPR race again this year. Tom has skippered our boats in this race for the last 5 years.

A trip that tests the resilience of those involved, whether part of the sailing team ensuring we get round the course as quickly and safely as possible or in the running team conquering mountains on Mull, Jura and Arran in super quick time.  You join the boat on 18th May in Oban for familiarisation and training with the race starting on 20th May in Oban and finishing in Troon as soon as we can get there but probably by 22nd May. See the SIPR website for details of the race.

Milebuilder (Ardrossan to Oban)

26th May to 2nd June 2022

 5 berths £950 per person (5 berths available)  

These trips are aimed at those wishing to gain mileage in order to sit the Coastal or Offshore Yachtmaster exam but who do not have the pre-requisite miles to do so.  They are also relevant to those just wishing to experience passage making on the beautiful West Coast of Scotland.  The trips will also involve informal tuition on any area of the RYA syllabus that participants may wish to focus.  This trip will ideally take in a rounding of The Mull of Kintyre before spending a few days around Islay, Jura, Mull, Iona etc. 

 

West Coast Cruise (Oban to Badachro)

5th to 10th June 2022

Double cabin forward  (2 persons sharing) Full

Double cabin aft  (2 persons sharing)  Full

 On this cruise the boat will be catered we will however plan to eat ashore on two evenings, these meals are not included in the cost.

Your skipper will take you on a fantastic tour of some of the spectacular West Coast islands starting in Oban .  We will then head out towards the Small Isles (Muck, Rum, Coll) and to the West of Skye if the weather allows, if not a passage through the tidal gate of Kyle Rhea on the inside passage, where a visit to Eilean Donan Castle or Plockton may be included.

 

St Kilda/Outer Hebrides Cruise (Starting and ending Badachro)

18th to 26th June 2022

 Double cabin forward  Full

 Double cabin aft  (2 persons sharing)   Full

 On this cruise the boat will be catered, we will however plan to eat ashore on two evenings, these meals are not included in the cost.

A cruise starting and ending in Badachro – A trip out to the iconic Island of Saint Kilda, the furthest west outpost of the British Isles with its history and abundant bird life.  Leaving from Badachro ideally we would head West towards the Outer Hebrides taking in the Shiant Islands before heading out to the Atlantic through the Sound of Harris.  A stop in either Leverburgh or the Isle of Taransay may be necessary before pointing the boat for St Kilda.

This is of course given the weather conditions for this to be viable, about 1 in 3 attempts to sail to St Kilda in a specific time window fail.  This itinerary is completely weather dependent however the aim will be to get to St Kilda and anchor in Village Bay allowing you to get ashore and explore the island.  Failing that the intention would be to cruise the East Coast of the Outer Hebrides taking in some of the beautiful secluded anchorages available as we head North up the coast of Harris or South along the coast of the Uist’s, we also have the option to circumnavigate Skye. 

 

Skye/Outer Hebrides Cruise (Starting and ending Badachro)

31 July to 7th August 2022

Double cabin forward  (2 persons sharing)  – Full

Double cabin aft  (2 persons sharing)   – Full

On this cruise the boat will be catered although we will plan to eat ashore on three evenings, these meals are not included in the cost.

A cruise starting and ending in Badachro – ranging North as far as Stornoway and South to Mingulay. If the weather allows we will head to the west Coast of the Hebrides as well where we have the opportunity to visit places like Loch Roag, Taransay and the Monach Isles.  Once again the itinerary will be weather dependent but you can be assured of some fantastic scenery, wildlife and food.
