Sailing to St. Kilda and the Outer Hebrides. Depending on the wind a plan will be made to get to St. Kilda – not necessarily an easy job! St. Kilda is an island group situated outside the protective circle of Outer Hebrides. The whole of the Atlantic ends on these islands, which makes them so unique and one of those places you just have to visit! St. Kilda was once inhabited by a population of 75 to 80 people. They maintained the island, kept small sheep and some cattle to live from, but mainly kept busy searching for Puffineggs. In 1930 the population had shrunk to 36 people and so the complete community left the island as food was scarce and boat connection unreliable. Now you can only visit the islands by boat. On the islands there are still some of the Soay sheep left. But mainly they are now inhabited by Puffins, Northern Gannets, Leach Petrels and many more birds. Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Programme Outline

Ports

Ullapool, despite its small size is the largest settlement for many miles around and a major tourist destination of Scotland. The village was founded in 1788 as a herring port by the British Fisheries Society. A few Cordyline australis or New Zealand cabbage trees are grown in the town and are often mistaken for palms. The harbour is still the edge of the village, used as a fishing port, yachting haven, and ferry port. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings here.

    "The best moment was when we crossed the finish line and everybody celebrated together. The tone was simply unforgettable!"

  • Annette (18) Denmark

    "I have met new people, been up in the mast, seen indescribable sunsets and laughed a lot. Learning how to sail a ship has been the coolest thing I have done so far and I have confidence in what I do now"

One of the most splendid. Experts say this solid, authentic-rigged ship is not only one of the most beautiful herring loggers, but also a very good sailor. She has won several prizes during the Tall Ships Races and Regattas. Tecla …

    Antartica

    – by Windseeker Robin

    We are adventurers... each of us in our own way. For some... it's facing the sea-sickness of rolling swells and books that move across the table on their own. Or climbing the mast all the way to the top, breathing heavy and heart …
