Weathering the challenging “stay-at-home” storm.
As long as the Corona-pandemic persists, Regina Laska is waiting for us indoors while being well looked after by the staff of Marina Seca, La Coruna, Spain.
My eighth season, amended due to Corona: Staying in Galicia during 2020
The entire season of 2020 recently had to be completely postponed to 2021. All guests have been offered a place for 2021, which most guests have approved to accept. Corona permitting, I will offer a couple of legs in late summer and autumn in Galicia, instead.
During 2020, Regina Laska will remain in the wonderful cruising area of Galicia in Spain during the season. If all goes to plan, she will be launched in July with some sailing season left for 2020.
If all goes to plan – Corona permitting – I will start with some private sailing in July and beginning of August to allow for a flexible start. Then, I will offer sailing legs staying in Galicia at the end of August and September.
This means, we do not have to cross borders and, thinking of Covid-19, can remain in one of the least effected areas of Spain. Galicia and Asturias just adjacent have had very few cases of Corona, luckily, and we hope it will continue like this. Obviously, before we can start planning travels such as flights to Vigo, Santiago de Compostela or La Coruna have to be taken up again in oder to join a sailing leg in late summer/early autumn. Luckily, the sailing season is long in Galicia…
We need to keep it flexible and wait and see how things develop. But if you are interested in sailing in Galicia later this year, you are welcome to contact me! See here, for how the sailing would be in 2020.
My ninth season: Rescheduled itinerary from 2020
2021 will finally fulfil the dream of high latitude sailing. We will start in Galicia, Spain and then sail via UK, Scotland, Orkney and Shetland to Norway and then along the coast northbound to Lofoten and back to Sweden.
While most legs are already taken by guests originally planned for 2020, there is always be the possibility of cancellations: so please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Each below leg is different. Some are RYA sail training courses, others are ocean passages and yet others are just intended for a relaxed holiday sailing.
Whom you sail with is just as important as the leg itself, please send an e-mail as personal as possible and I will try my best to offer you a leg that suits your expectations, experience and fellow crew members!
2021 begins with a relaxed cruise in Galicia and continues with an RYA Yachtmaster Ocean qualifying leg over the Bay of Biscay to The Solent, England, where there will be a Dayskipper course and a Coastal Skipper course. We continue on another RYA Coastal Skipper course from The Solent to Edinburgh and then switch to adventure sailing up in the northern Scottish islands Orkney and Shetland. The North Sea takes us to Norway, where the summer will be spent in the picturesque and stunning Fjords all the way up to Lofoten and then back again to Sweden, where I will winter, once again, with Adams Boat Care.
