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 one Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 43 - Eloise, see above, with six/seven berths. 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 originally committed to charter two similar yachts due to there being limited availability and members were encouraged to make their 2018 plans soon and commit to joining this two week sailex. Demand has been such that we have now released one of the yachts and have six confirmed berths for the Yacht on charter. There is potentially space to add one more member on this trip (male or female), please discuss with Alan Mortimore should you have an interest. It will now be a Saturday start and finish event. This Sailex will include some long passages and potentially lumpy seas. As of December 6th members interested in taking a place on this event are advised to add their name to the standby list AND speak to Alan Mortimore regarding availability.
The lead skipper will be Alan Mortimore. The total cost of this Sailex will be £880 per berth for the two week charter (6 on board), or £760 per berth (7 on board), this includes the cost of an outboard for the dinghy.
