Description

Fort William to Kirkwall—Friday 19th June 3rd July

Through the Caledonian Canal then up to Orkney, some cruising round Orkney

Only 165 NM but the first 4 days won’t be fast and by the time we have finished we will understand Locks. We have done the Crinan Canal several times and know you can’t rush a Canal. The Caledonian also has some spectacular scenery but it would be good to spend 2 or 3 days sailing round Orkney before we finish.

This is after the Three Peaks Yacht Race so in the unlikely event that the weather is extremely bad it is possible we might start from Oban instead (still easy by train)
