Scotland-Solent Mile Builder
Argyll and Bute
The Equinox Scotland-Solent mile builder is a great opportunity for sailors of all levels to gain more experience and enjoy some excellent sea passages. Sail at night and out of sight of land, experience living and eating on board all under the watchful eye of your skipper/instructor. En route to our home marina in Hamble we will sail along the West coast of Scotland and the Irish Sea, then South to Lands End and along the South coast of England.
The trip will be an opportunity for RYA Day Skippers to gain experience and work towards their RYA Coastal Skipper or their RYA Yachtmaster Qualifications. There will be the two opportunities to skipper a 200 + mile passage under instruction, or shorter passages between stopping ports.
Rho will be completing a number of summer cruises around the Highlands and the Inner and Outer Hebrides. This trip is the delivery of the boat to Hamble after the race over 9 days in late summer. This is a one-way trip but there are good transport links in to Oban, by plane, bus or train.
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 9 days, including stop-overs in Scotland, Wales and the West Country.
We plan to stop en route, the stopping points will be decided by the skipper and based on weather but may include Jura, the North coast of Ulster, Holyhead and Falmouth.
Total mileage – 600+ nm
All meals while sailing are included.
Mooring fees, fuel and boat costs are included. Travel to and from Oban and Hamble is not included.
