Shetland Weekend, Explore the South Mainland onboard The Swan LK243
The perfect way to see Shetland's South End, aboard our historic wooden sail boat! You will enjoy overnight anchorages in sheltered voes along the way and, weather depending, we may take the dinghy ashore in some locations..
Duration: 3 days/2 nights
Board: Lerwick, Shetland's capital, 10am Friday 22nd September
Disembark: Scalloway, Shetland's ancient capital, lunchtime Sunday 24th September
Boarding the Swan 10am Friday, your stay will begin with a comprehensive safety briefing including how to work the lines on deck and set the sails. We will then put this into practice, enjoying the Swan under sail while we find a picturesque anchorage to spend the night and get to know your crew mates over dinner before turning in for a good night’s sleep.
Saturday will begin with a hearty breakfast; you will need your strength for the halyard hauling you’re about to do! With the sails raised, enjoy your trip and further explore the delights of the Shetland coastline.
As this is a sailing trip, the exact route will be decided by our expert skipper, and weather conditions, but we hope to include a visit to Mousa and anchor for an hour or two so you can visit the Iron age broch, the finest example of its kind. Sunday evening will be spent at anchor in one of Shetland’s many sheltered southerly voes, where you can get to know your crew mates better and possibly enjoy a tune.
On Sunday, you will complete your trip north to the attractive village of Scalloway, Shetland’s ancient capital, disembarking around lunchtime.
