Wylde Swan:
Ullapool (GB) - Harlingen (NL)

10 September - 15 September 2019

Late summer port-to-port delivery. This journey is for people who want to experience as much sailing as possible with fewer stops along the way. During the delivery you will work together with the crew to bring the Ship towards her destination. You will get to know a sailor’s life and get your sea legs while crossing the North Sea. The journey from Scotland to The Netherlands promises to be an exciting experience. Enjoy the last rays of summer sunshine in this September journey. Although there will be as much sailing as possible, due to time constraints you might end up going on motor if necessary. Open to Windseekers aged 15 and older.

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.

Harlingen is a trade and fishing port in Friesland, the Netherlands. The town itself is over a thousand years old, and you’ll find several historic streets in the old city centre. Its small size makes it easy to explore the town on foot. In 2014 Harlingen was a port of call for the Tall Ships Races. The town operates ferry lines to the Frisian Islands, a unique nature reserve with populations of seals, birds, and other wildlife. With its ‘gezellige’ pubs the town is a great place for a stopover.
