2010 | pilot cutter | scotland
At Easter and again in August 2010 I joined the crew of the Lizzie May, a wonderful Pilot Cutter operated by Clyde Classic Sailing, for a journey between Edinburgh and Inverness and then for a Hebridean Cruise. Yes, I came back with a nasty scar on my upper lip (entirely my own fault) and yes, I did have one episode of sea sickness. However, the friendships made and the glorious pictures below speak for themselves, truly a chance to experience "seafaring's lost heartbeat".
I thoroughly commend any of the wide range voyages on offer (something for every level of sailing experience) including: a gastromic cruise, sailing to Ireland, Clyde Classic sailing tasters and a weekend Hebridean cruise. I'm already looking forward to a second voyage later this summer - watch out for pirates on the Clyde in August!
I'd also like to add a special thanks to Clyde Classic Sailing for sponsoring me on my West Coast Adventure in aid of the RNLI.
