What a joy to return to Regina Laska! You keep her in such top condition that her sea worthiness is never in doubt. And the good feeling I feel when boarding her again is just the feeling of visiting a specially familiar place.


You sail Regina Laska to places so unfamiliar to me, so even when returning now for the 6th time on Regina Laska,  I may experience new adventures and discover places I would otherwise never come to. This is also part of the known comfort of Regina Laska.



Entering the Corryvreckan.

What an adventure: Sailing through the Corryvreckan!

The strong current on a calm day when passing through the Corryvreckan.

First motoring against the tide full speed. Over 7 knots of current against us!

Turning back and making over 13 knots over ground. It's like flying out of the Corryvreckan!

Anchoring just off the famous Ardbeg Distillery in Scotland!

BBQ onboard in a fantastic scenery!

Sauna-time at anchor outside Ardbeg Distillery.

On our way to the whisky tour!


Leon, you have unique insight for match-making your crew! I have always enjoyed the company onboard, the folks I have had the good fortune to sail with. I especially appreciate meeting people from the entire world, especially from all over Europe, which I enjoy meeting so much and having so many interesting discussions with.


The crew of Leg 13: Nick, Eva, Jan and myself! Tilly Hats seem to be the dress code on Regina Laska?!

It's always great to chat with Nick!




You foster good crew harmony with your sailing passion and your delicious meals prepared for the crew.



Finally, Leon, your unconditional sharing of Regina Laska is a real treat to me and those of us who have been your crew. You encourage us in all aspects of point to point sailing. I feel fully engaged as a valued crew-member!



Many thanks for another memorable Reginasailing cruising leg!
