11-apr-1724-apr-1714Amsterdam - Ullapool
Including the Orkney Isles. Setting sail from Amsterdam, this voyage will take you north to the Orkney and maybe even Shetland Islands before finishing in Ullapool. The weather in April is still very unpredictable, so this voyage really depends on wind and weather. It might mean you will have to wait out a good wind on the Orkney Islands, while sheltering in a bay, the perfect walk would be up the hill to for example the Higland Park Whiskey Distillery.

25-apr-171-mei-177Ullapool - Ullapool - Rounding Skye
Rounding Skye. Setting sail from Ullapool you will take your time exploring Skye. Skye is the biggest but one of the Islands of the Hebrides. It has over 550 km of coastline! Enough to explore and not even get to see everything. In springtime you will spot the first Otters coming out of their winterhiding. The Golden Eagles might be spotted, as well as some seals. This voyage will give you a combination of sailing and walking. Exploring villages or historic sites in the morning and then sailing on to the next bay.

Tecla at St Kilda
2-mei-179-mei-178Ullapool - Ullapool - St Kilda and the outer Hebrides.
Depending on wind a plan will be made to get to St Kilda. Not necessarily an easy job. St Kilda is an island group situated outside the protective circle of Outer Hebrides. The whole of the Atlantic ends on these islands. Which makes them so unique and one of those places you just have to visit! St Kilda was once inhabited by a population of 75 to 80 people. They maintained the island, kept small sheep and some cattle to live from, but mainly kept busy searching for Puffineggs. In 1930 the population had shrunk to 36 people and so the complete community left the island as food was scares and boat connection unreliable. Now you can only visit the islands by boat. On the islands there are still some of the Soay sheep left. But mainly the islands is inhabited by Puffins, Northern Gannets, Leach Petrels and many more birds.

The end of the summerseason is closing in, the ice is melting and the flowers are in full bloom. One last chance for the season to get to Greenland.
