Depending on the weather, we will sail from Stavanger to a Norwegian island off the coast on the first day. That way, everyone can get used to the yacht and the sea, and there is also time to experience a bit of Norway. After that, we have a distance of about 280 miles to go to Scotland. Under good weather conditions, about two and a half days non-stop, but it can be longer or shorter.

We sail on a 3-watch system, 3 hours on and 6 hours off. That way, you still get enough rest and are alert when your watch starts. Especially when it is colder (at night), this makes it easy to keep watch.

Special on the crossings are the beautiful sunrises and moonrises/sets. With a bit of luck, we will see whales as well as dolphins and the most beautiful starry skies or a luminous sea (sea sparkle). A special combination of making miles, night sailing, more sail handling and a lot of steering. These sea sailing trips are well-planned, so there are also opportunities to avoid really bad weather or to visit a few nice ports along the way for variety and to recover.

The destination will be determined by the weather, but the plan is to sail to Stonehaven and then spend a day in port to recover (there is a cosy pub) and see some of the country, including a nice walk to the ruins of Dunnottar castle.

This is followed by a leg along the Scottish coast to Edinburgh, also a night’s sail through. From the marina, we can easily take the train to Edinburgh’s old town. If there is still time left, we could climb ‘Arthur’s Seat’ with great views over the city and the ‘Firth of Forth’ , then finish the sailing trip in a cosy restaurant.

Daily distances vary between 15 and 280 miles, depending on weather and tide.

Category A: Crossings, sea sailing, mile-makers where sailing also continues at night.
