Ullapool – Den Helder – Visiting the Orkneys. This voyage includes a beautiful sail crossing to the North of Scotland, sailing past Cape Wrath and passing through the Penland Firth or first visiting theOrkney Islands. When wind and weather are favourable, you will do some sightseeing and small distance sailing to see the most of the islands. Then you will continue your voyage to the Netherlands, with possible stops on the Wadden Islands Terschelling and Texel, before finishing the voyage in Den Helder, where the Tecla has her winter base. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.
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.
Den Helder is a beautiful town in the Netherlands, situated at the very tip of the North Holland province. Visit the Marinemuseum to learn more about the country's marine traditions, take a walk in the botanical gardens Oranjerie De Groene Parel Den Helder or admire sealife in the Fort Kijkduin Museum and Aquarium.
