HOT OFF THE PRESS!! Eda’s 2015 Schedule

With the season in Scotland now well under way we only have two berths left on our trip from Mallaig to Oban. Trips on the south coast are selling up fast with only the last two long weekend trips having spaces. So if you want to get your last fix of sailing on Eda this season then have a look at our 2014 schedule.

With this season going so well we are very excited to publish Eda’s 2015 schedule. Whether it’s a short sailing break in the West Country or a 9 day Outer Hebridean adventure, there are many chances to come sailing on Eda in 2015, especially if you have missed out this year.

Even if you have sailed on Eda before no two trips are the same! So far in four voyages in Scotland we have been to 27 different anchorages! So you can be guaranteed to find new places to explore every year. So far we have gone as far north as Loch Roag on Lewis, west to St Kilda and to Mingulay and Berneray on the southern tip of the Outer Hebrides and a whole lot of places in between!

The waters are now teaming with wildlife; breeding sea birds, seals, dolphins and whales. We are expecting our first basking shark imminently. The gannet colonies out in St Kilda were an awesome sight which managed to silent an otherwise rowdy boat. The puffin colony on Mingulay can captivate you for hours watching them tending to their young in their hill-side burrows.

So far this year we have been joined by some fantastic guest crews both new and returning, who have helped to make all the voyages so happy and memorable.  We really hope to sail with them all in the future.

All the best and a happy summer wherever you might be sailing.
