Leg 12/2019

12 – 19 Aug Dublin/Irland – Oban/Scotland, 250 nm

Regina Laska anchored in front of the Ardbeg Distillery on Islay, Scotland.

 

Ardglass in Northern Ireland at low water. All the water has gone!

 

This scenic leg getting the best out of Ireland and Scotland, will be loaded with tidal challenges.

 

Howth outside Dublin

We will start from Dublin. Why not come a day early, stay in a hotel and spend an evening at the Templebar before embarking?

 

From Dublin we will set of and, tides, swell and wind permitting, might attempt to enter Strangford Lough. The entrance (and especially the exit) can be very challenging with huge breaking waves due to significant current against wind and swell. Once inside, you are rewarded by the biggest tranquility imaginable.

 

The current in “The Narrows” leading into Strangford Lough.

 

Via Bangor we continue to Rathlin Island, the last outpost of norther Ireland.

From here, we set over to Scotland and enjoy more strong tides and Scottish atmosphere – now exchanging Guinness with Whisky!
