Don't miss the boat!

The summer is officially over and Autumn is in its full glory with stunning colours abound. There are fewer boats around, however it is far from a quiet time of year.  Dinghies require de-rigging for the winter months, sails washed, mended and hung up in the sail shed and engines given their winter service.  

As we tuck up the boats, we start to think about our 2018 courses. Dates are now online and available to book, with some courses already oversubscribed!  If you think you might be interested in joining us on the water on Argyll's Secret Coast, then please check out availability before it is too late.

In amongst all the tidying up and office work, we do, however, manage to find some time to get out onto the water ourselves. Stunning sails, moon jelly fish swarms and the exciting prospect of spotting a basking shark on their southerly migration from our Hebridean shores, makes for some exciting sailing.  

In fact, in recent years, there has been so much interest in the southerly migration of basking sharks, that Basking Shark Scotland now run research trips, based at Carry Farm for 3 weeks in the Autumn, to help study the southerly migration of the gentle giants in the Clyde area.

If you fancy getting involved, there are a few places left this Autumn for you to join them whilst they are based in our area.  Contact Shane for further information.

And don't forget, now is also an ideal time to see the Aurora Borealis.  If you fancy a weekend in our lodges by the shore, enjoying an evening on the balcony studying our dark skies, please check the availability of our lodges.  It is a really beautiful time of year to enjoy the natural world on our doorstep.
