The Wild Islands and Life of Islands Sailing Residencies

Mallaig/Inner Hebrides

Deadline: First come, first accepted

Sail Britain

16 - 23rd May 2020

18 – 24th July 2020

Wild Islands - During this residency we will be travelling to the remoter and wilder islands, exploring ‘Islandness’ – the nature of islands and what makes them special, including the unique geology and wildlife that can be found in these wild places. Our voyage north towards Mallaig takes us through some incredible wilderness such as mysterious Loch Moidart with its ruined castle, the Treshnish Isles inhabited only by puffins, and the magical isle of Staffa and Fingal’s Cave.


Life of Islands - The residency will have a greater focus on exploring ashore than most in Sail Britain’s programme, so in addition to some wonderful crossings between islands under sail, expect long evenings to go roaming on land, meeting the local people, or spending time working on personal projects. Nevertheless, this residency will encompass the surrounding seas – a vital component of ‘Islandness’ – and will be an opportunity to experience the ocean first hand in a very intimate way.
