Leaving Lowestoft in the early hours, our three yachts embark on the longest stage of their sail up the east coast, heading for the stunning Yorkshire town of Whitby.
There is something about the view of Whitby from out at sea that is simply stunning. The harbour is safely nestled away at the bottom oh huge cliffs, in the shadow of the ruined monastery that inspired Bram Stoker to write ‘Dracula’, and from here that is no surprise!
But what our crews are most grateful for after a long overnight sail is Whitby’s reputation for some of the finest fish and chips in the country, and the restaurants do not disappoint!
You can follow the progress of the cruise in real-time on the map below. We have set the map to follow Monet automatically, but you can use the search tool to find Galliver II or Florence Agnes II if you wish.

Premier Sailing would also like to thank all of our sponsors for this year’s endeavours. Their generous donations have all gone straight to Macmillan, so they can help those who need it most.
