Falmouth to Dublin–Milebuilder £295 0 Email Wild Spirit

Join Falmouth Sunday evening for the trip round to Dublin. We will call in to a few ports but there is one long leg with an overnight sail. Minimum of 250NM and probably 300+.
A great Milebuilder for those working towards Yachtmaster or wanting to build their experience and miles. You will be actively involved and there are Qualifying Passages for YM.
We will probably finish in Dun Laoghaire or Greystones which have easy connections with Dublin Airport.

If you want to do the Milebuilder after this (or before) you can stay on board at no extra cost.

Several stops as we head north towards either the Isle of Man or Rathlin Island and or Arran and then Troon with easy links to Glasgow airport.

Good Milebuilder and for those progressing towards Yachtmaster, normally fairly benign conditions though in May the normal SW prevailing wind may change to NE.

Splendid scenery and hospitality with stops at a few places.

Scottish Explorer £595 5 Email Wild Spirit

Join either Friday evening or early Saturday morning for a full week of sailing out of Troon Yacht Haven (easy from Glasgow airport)

Where we go depends on the crew, experience and weather. This is a trip for keen sailors with the opportunity to build skills, develop navigation experience and see beautiful scenery.
There may be some night sailing but unlikely to be more than one overnight trip and there will be time ashore plus a few meals out (extra cost).

Great sailing with you and the team – learned more in 2 weeks than I have in the last 5 years … Thanks !

Best,

Dublin (Wicklow) to Troon (Glasgow) £325 4 Email Wild Spirit

This trip is after the Volvo Round Ireland race and we will store the cruising gear at Wicklow and put it back on for Sunday morning departure. Wicklow is easy for Dublin airport, just a Bus ride.

Just where we stop will depend on the weather and we will probably have one overnight passage. We will probably sail between 175 and 215NM and include at least one Qualifying passage for YachtMaster.

It is after a major race so there is the possibility that we might have to delay or even cancel due to damage. In the last 12 years we haven’t had to do this but it is a possibility. The price of the trip reflects this increased risk. if we did have to cancel we give you your money back but not costs of flights.

Potential stops include Peel on Isle of Man, Howth, Ardglass, Bangor, Glenarm, Rathlin Island, PortPatrick and Lamlash.

We should be back into Troon by Wednesday evening but it could be early Thursday so best to book flight out of Glasgow or train for Thursday late morning or afternoon. Good restaurant at Troon Yacht Haven which we may well head for on last night.

2 or 3 of our Volvo Round Ireland team will be on board
