27th Apr – 4th May,
Start and finish, Ardrossan
Our first week will be a gentle cruise around the beautiful islands of the Clyde – Arran, the Cumbrae Islands and the stunning Kyles of Bute, with a strong focus on sailing skills and learning the ropes! This is a really beautiful area and offers something for any weather conditions too.
As our first trip of the season, we’ll be focusing on the joy of sailing as a close-knit team and learning to harness the power of the wind to sail to beautiful places. And as with all our trips, it’ll be a chance to learn a bit more about the ocean and get stuck into a bit of citizen science on the sea. We will be running several research projects throughout the summer so it’s a true Sail Britain community effort.
‘Alcuin’ is a comfortable boat to sail and very seaworthy too. With a cosy saloon, comfy berths and central heating, she will take Spring in Scotland in her stride and we’ll be having delicious hearty meals cooked in the galley.
