7 – 14th Sept
Our voyage south towards Oban takes us through some incredible wilderness such as mysterious Loch Moidart with its ruined castle, the Treshnish Isles inhabited only by puffins, and the magical isle of Staffa and Fingal’s Cave.
This week is a very free programme for our crew to explore the ocean and coastline from interdisciplinary perspectives, learn to sail, and develop and share ideas as a close knit team. We’ll aim to be able to go ashore each evening to bridge the littoral zone between land and sea. No prior sailing experience is necessary and we’ll get everyone involved in the running of the boat and our summer research projects exploring phytoplankton and microplastics.
