Cruise Itinerary - 2016
All change-over dates have been organised so that they are not too far from an airport or railway station for ease of transport. There may be an opportunity for car hire share if you speak to our office nearer the time.
These cruises can be used to do any level of practical sailing course or to gain experience and build up mileage towards a higher qualification. It also gives you the opportunity to sail in waters that you wouldn't ordinarily be able to. Legs can be taken individually or you can complete the whole circumnavigation.
Leg 1 - Levington to Inverness - Approx 460 nm
Join this exciting cruise at Levington on the Friday evening and expect to depart for a long leg up to Inverness. This leg can be sailed just for experience and fun, or is an ideal opportunity if you wish to gain your Yachtmaster Ocean Certificate and require a passage of 600 miles sailing non-stop, 200 miles of which must be at least 50 miles from land. You will arrive in Inverness by the following Friday.
Leg 2 - Inverness to Bangor (Northern Ireland) - Approx 217 nm
After re-victualling the boat you will depart Inverness, travelling through the Caledonian Canal, into Loch Ness - let us know if you see the Loch Ness Monster! Then through Loch Linnhe to Fort William, stopping at various ports along the way until you cross the Northern Irish Sea (approx 164 nm) to Bangor in Northern Ireland.
Leg 3 - Bangor to Milford Haven - Approx 217 nm
Departing Bangor, it is likely that you will travel south through the Irish Sea following the east coast of Ireland, possibly taking in Dublin, Wicklow and Wexford along the route, maybe sampling a glass or two of Guinness. Look out for the Leprechauns!
Leg 4 - Milford Haven to St Helier (Jersey) - Approx 231 nm
You will depart Milford Haven. After travelling out into the Celtic Sea you will pass Lands End, stopping at the Scilly Isles and on to the Channel Islands, arriving at St Helier by the afternoon of the Friday.
Leg 5 - St Helier to Levington - Approx 404 nm
Departing St Helier you will either follow the French or English coast through the Channel (depending on weather conditions), stopping at various ports along the way. You will enter the North Sea and follow the coast up to Levington to complete the final leg of the trip round Britain.
