RYA Day Skipper




Following on from the success of our passage to the Scillies in 2017, we're planning another cruise between 25 June and 6 July this year.
This will be a slightly different format, as we hope to do it in 2 x day passages, the first of which will be from Holyhead to the Isle of Man, and the second will take us up to the south of the Solway Firth, where we will rendezvous with some entertaining friends. (Then obviously coming back)
We are planning on taking about a week to suit the weather and tides, and can overnight, crack on or linger at any point. There is the option of diverting to Ireland or around North Wales if we have spare time and the inclination.
We are looking for two experienced sailor to make up our crew to four,
Food on board, fuel, mooring dues etc are all included - although it would be ungracious to spurn any unsolicited contributions. If required,we can collect from Manchester airport or you could fly to Dublin and get the ferry right to Holyhead !
