Isles of Scilly

St Kilda

Tall Ship Taster

Day Sails

Enjoy the Isles of Scilly and live aboard a historic tall ship Irene.

With only 10 guests and 5 professional crew gaff ketch Irene offers a unique way to sail to the Scillies and enjoy a few days in the islands.


A mix of going ashore and some sailing between islands in this tiny archipelago that is part of Cornwall, but so different.


This is our shortest crossing to the Isles of Scilly


Irene prefers to sail to the Scillies from Newlyn, tucked in behind the yellow granite cliffs of West Penwith and Lands End.


It is only 35 miles to the Isles of Scilly and you would expect the crossing to take about six to seven hours.


Sub tropical flowers, seals on the rocky reefs and a tradition of gig rowing and pilot trade to sailing ships of old.

St Kilda Adventure

St Kilda is amazing, seeing were a tiny population lived in such harsh and remote conditions surrounded by wildlife in all its glory is always the high point of this voyage.


BUT please remember to reach and land safely on St Kilda is totally weather dependent. The Outer Hebrides are well worth a visit in their own right so as in all sailing trips you make the most of what ever wind allows.
