Sailex Reference SCO19 Lead Skipper Andy McWilliam
For 2019 Council recommended that we return to the Clyde for the Scottish Sailex. Two yachts have been booked from Flamingo Yacht Charters at Largs for this event. Both yachts are Beneteau Oceanis 45’s one commissioned in 2018 and the other to be commissioned in 2019 (hopefully!). The yachts described by Flamingo as follows:-
A beautiful high quality yacht with remarkable sailing performance. The Beneteau Oceanis 45 is perfect for those who like a touch of luxury when sailing as a family or a group of friends.
New to the fleet for 2019, Flamingo, our Oceanis 45 is coming to us straight out of the wrapper from Beneteau as a sister ship to Skylark. We hope you will be as excited about her as we are.
Yacht shown not the new Flamingo.
The Beneteau Oceanis 45’s we have chartered - Flamingo and Skylark - are described as 10 berth yachts with 4 double cabins and a double berth in the saloon. Berth costs are based on 6 people and may be reduced should we take one couple on each yacht. As such please budget for a maximum cost of £570 per berth.
The yachts are complete with a dinghy and outboard.
Details of the sailing plan will be discussed at the sailex meeting but with long days on the west coast at this time of year options include the more sheltered waters of the Firth of Clyde or further afield to explore the Isle of Islay. I believe there is a distillery or three on the island!
LATEST. Bookings for this sailex have been quick off the mark and it looks now like both yachts will be fully booked very shortly. The booking link remains open but the latest position regarding availability can be obtained by calling John Bryant.
