Six day sailing trip: Sail Scotland down the magical Firth of Clyde, round the Mull of Kintyre and head off to explore the magical Inner Hebridean islands of Gigha, Jura and Islay.
After our full safety briefing and introduction to the boat, we will set off from our base in Inverkip to explore the Clyde giving you the chance to experience sailing in one of the UK’s best sailing grounds. After a fast and full days sail down the Clyde to Campbeltown we will round the Mull of Kintyre and head out to the wonderful islands of the Inner Hebrides. Stunning scenery, excellent seafood and some pretty decent whisky are only some of the attractions awaiting you!
Further days will see us exploring the islands and the West Coast of Scotland, sailing past Jura to the Croabh marina, and over to Islay to perhaps stop for a distillery tour or two. Plenty sailing, and plenty time to explore the islands and mainland ashore.

An offshore race prepared Beneteau First 40.7, the most successful cruiser racer ever built. Complete with race and delivery sails and several spinnakers, the boat is fast, safe and easily sailed. Down below, we have all (most) mod cons and is very comfortable. We sail with two watches, so there is always an opportunity to get involved and when you are off watch – soak in the experience, sit back and enjoy the ride!
