A Fair Isle Sailing Holiday
Sailing Holiday Type
Offshore and Coastal Day Sailing
Voyaging from Orkney or Shetland to Fair Isle under sail is a unique adventure.
Sailing offers a unparalleled and immersive experience, where you can take the time to enjoy the journey, learn new skills and be a key part of the team sailing the ship.
Once ashore there is space for nature watching and walking on Fair Isle and the other islands we will visit, meeting people or simply just ‘being’.
Fair Isle is the most geographically remote inhabited island in the UK and having a full day to explore ashore there is the big prize on this leg.
Sailing Type – Mostly Coastal Day Sailing but the route to Fair Isle is an open-water sea passage and there is a chance of an overnight voyage where you would be part of the watch system. More likely we will be sailing for part of a night or have a very early/late start and a long day.
The intention is to spend a whole day/two nights on Fair Isle on both voyages – weather permitting.
Fantastic scenery Shetland and Orkney Fair Isle Westray good weather and fair winds. Instructions very clear safety in mind at all times. Food cooked by Sue was wonderful we had crab and fresh fish as a treat. John and Sue were also very friendly and helpful. Would love another voyage!
Thanks for a fantastic week..
It is the skill of a successful host to take a gang of disparate (desperate?) folk and turn them into a group of friends – Well done!
We are thoroughly bitten by the bug and would like to have another go next year
