Round Britain 2019 - Neptune's Staircase to Kerrera

June 1, 2019

As one leg ends, another begins. With new crews on board, Clearlake II and Ashanti leave the Caledonian canal and set off toward Kerrera, an island near the town of Oban, in beautiful sunshine and fair winds to send them on their way.

After leaving Fort William, there was a great few hours of sailing for our  crews to enjoy, and a complete change from the steady procession  through the canal. Our convoy raced through the water of Loch Linnie, heading south to Glencoe in the sunshine.

With the majestic Ben Nevis still towering in the background, our crews were shown some of the best sailing in the highlands and islands of western Scotland as they travelled to their overnight stop at Oban. With the boats resupplied and raring to go, everyone on board was able to enjoy their surroundings, the excitement building for the week ahead.

Sunshine, wind and open water!

The sail4macmillan cruise offers not only some great sailing in British waters, but also a chance to support a great cause and provide some much needed help for those who really need it.

If you wish to support our crews on their voyage, and help Macmillan Cancer Support continue their vital work with those affected by cancer, please follow this link to our justgiving page:
