Hebridean Sailex - out of Oban

HEB18 - A two week sail out of Oban in May 2018 - Lead Skipper Alan Mortimore



The plan is to explore the Outer Hebrides visiting destinations such as Isles of Bara, Mingulay, with time to explore the Isles of St Kilda - weather permitting.  We have reserved two Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 43's with six berths apiece.   Going in May should give good opportunities to see a wide range of wild life both at sea and on land.  This Sailex has been arranged following the very successful "Best of the North" Sailex arranged in 2017 - see TOGline for reports of that event and the News blog on this web site.

We have committed to charter two similar yachts due to there being limited availability so members are encouraged to make their 2018 plans soon and commit to joining this two week sailex.  It will be a Friday start and finish event.  This Sailex will include some long passages and potentially lumpy seas.

The lead skipper will be Alan Mortimore.  The anticipated cost of this Sailex will be £840 per berth, which includes the cost of an outboard for the dinghy.
