sailing breaks on the isle of skye
A unique opportunity to savour the delights of a Sailing break in reputedly ‘the best sailing waters of the world’ without the stresses and strains of being responsible for a yacht or a crew. This activity was a dream of the owners who were keen to share this magical experience with their guests, sailors and non-sailors alike, where you can be at one with elements trusting the able boat and its crew of Ken and Anne, to take care of you and entertain you for the day giving an insight into life at sea and also life and living on the Isle of Skye.
Ken is a Yacht master with many years sailing experience. He is also a Master Mariner with great respect for the seas. Anne is a Day Skipper, a native of Skye and a Gaelic speaker. There is an abundance of regular sightings of wildlife around our coasts, namely otters, seals, basking sharks, dolphins, porpoise, whales and seabirds. Sailing breaks in the waters around Skye are offered as a day sailing experience exclusively for guests at both Duisdale and Toravaig House Hotels.
