Choice of sailing intensity (please leave a note in the notes section on the registration form):
- Intensive: Sailing and exploring Scotland from the water is absolutely essential. The gennaker will be set if the wind direction allows it and it is possible due to the wind speed. The motor is used when there is no wind and when mooring for the last meters and even that not always ;-).
- Good balance: Sailing is important to you, but also to experience the land. We don't need the most complicated and exhausting way to get to a new bay or port. Later departures can be compensated with earlier moorings.
