12 – 19 Aug Dublin/Irland – Oban/Scotland, 250 nm
This scenic leg getting the best out of Ireland and Scotland, will be loaded with tidal challenges.
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.
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!
The leg ends in Oban, from where you easily take the bus or train to either Glasgow or Edinburgh airport.
Price: EUR 2.120 per person including all food consumed onboard, harbour fees, diesel etc plus visits to pubs and distilleries
