Plymouth-Scotland summer mile builder/cruise
The Equinox Extended mile builder is a great opportunity for sailors of all levels to gain more experience. In 2019 we are taking advantage of the changed timing of the RORC Fastnet Race – which will finish in Plymouth Sound August on, or around 8 Aug. We are keeping our yacht in Plymouth, rather than sailing back to the Solent, so that we are further west to start sail west to Cornwall, Lands End and then north to Ireland, Wales and Scotland.
Often sailing at night and out of sight of land, you will experience living and eating on board all under the watchful eye of your skipper/instructor. This mile building cruise will allow you to experience the West coast of Scotland, the Irish Sea, Lands End and along the South coast of England; possibly also the Isles of Scilly!
It’s an ideal opportunity for RYA Day Skippers to gain experience and work towards their RYA Coastal Skipper or their RYA Yachtmaster Qualifications. There will be opportunities to skipper a passage under instruction.
You can join the boat for one or both legs as we will be sailing the boat up to Scotland and back.
Your skipper will be an RYA Qualified Instructor so you will have the opportunity to learn as you cruise over 600+ nm and we expect the trip to take 7 days.
There are many trains to Plymouth, and train and flight options to return from Oban.
Total mileage – 600+ nm
All meals while sailing are included.
Mooring fees/fuel etc are included, trains, flights or transfers are not included.
