On Friday 17 May at 10.00 you will embark in Oban. Steady is waiting for you at the North Pier Pontoons. After coffee or tea there will be an explanation of the goings-on on board and a safety briefing. After lunch we set sail and raise the sails.
Never sailed before? No problem, we are ready to show you how to hoist the sails and even take the helm! We don’t sail according to a fixed schedule, we let the wind determine that. But what are the possibilities? We can head towards Loch Linnhe where we can explore Lismore or to the colourful harbour town of Tobermory on Mull. Wherever we go, each morning you will wake up in a new place and we will sail as much as possible these days. There will also be plenty of opportunity to explore the islands we call at on foot. On Monday, we’ll sail back to Oban where we’ll say goodbye around 3pm.
YOUR SAILING AREA
Begin your taster sailing experience in the port town of Oban on the West coast of Scotland. After getting acquainted with fellow guests and the boat, we’ll give an introduction and safety briefing over tea and cake. After lunch, we’ll set the sails together for the first time!
This voyage is perfect for beginners and if you have no sailing experience, it’s no problem! We have been sailing with Steady since the 90’s and have sailed in Scotland for many years. We will show you the ropes, hoist the sails with you and you can even take the helm and steer the boat.
Our itinerary will be dictated by the wind and weather, ensuring the best experience for guests and enabling us to chose the best sheltered sailing spots. We might sail towards Loch Linnhe where we can explore Lismore or to the colourful harbour town of Tobermory on the island of Mull. The island of Mull has many smaller islands of its West coast with beautiful anchorages and wonderful wildlife watching opportunities.
