  Welcome to New Horizon Sailing in Scotland and Ireland
 

A skippered, hands-on, sailing holiday on the West Coast of Scotland. Sailing amongst the islands of the Hebrides, Orkney, Shetland and Southern Ireland in comfort aboard a quality Oyster yacht. Charter a berth or the whole boat.

Or you can take a RYA Practical Training Course at this accredited sailing school. You can combine a sailing holiday with RYA approved training from Start Yachting, to Competent Crew, Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper and Yachtmaster preparation.

 


Towards Scarba (click on the image for a larger version - please be patient while the image loads) The Scottish West Coast and the islands of the Hebrides are as spectacular as the wildlife that inhabits them. There is no better way to visit than from the sea.

Join us for exhilarating Scottish sailing as we explore aboard our pedigree Oyster yacht which combines comfort with proven sailing ability.

Discover deep sea lochs, dramatic mountains, puffins, dolphins, whales or eagles and, at the end of the day, good food and like-minded company in one of the many secluded anchorages.

Anchored at Treshnish (click on the image for a larger version - please be patient while the image loads)Richard is your skipper and host, He is equally happy to handle the boat or leave you to sail while he keeps the mugs of tea and coffee topped up, prepares the meals or uncorks the wine.

He is a qualified RYA Yachtmaster Instructor and those who want to learn more will find him a calm and patient coach.

Experienced sailors will enjoy improving their navigation and boat handling skills in an area with interesting tides and snug anchorages.
Beginners will soon find themselves spending time at the wheel, trimming the sails or launching the dinghy.

Wind, Tide, Weather and the mood of the group dictate that no two cruises will be the same.

The Summer Isles (click on the image for a larger version - please be patient while the image loads)Favourite memories include;
reefed-down sailing in magnificent winds, barrelling along with the tide in narrow channels, dry-mouthed moments creeping into tight anchorages or rather wetter ones landing on rocky shores in the tender.

And;
a stroll on an empty beach before dinner, local hospitality, laughing at the antics of puffins around their burrows, the excitement of sighting the first dolphins or dining on fish caught that afternoon.

Whatever your age or experience, whether looking for a relaxing sailing holiday in Scotland cruising between islands, an approved RYA sailing course, a concentrated week of mile building in the Outer Hebrides, a short break, or more adventurous sailing to St. Kilda, Orkney, Fair Isle & Shetland or South West Ireland, you will find something to suit you.

In keeping with the New Horizon sailing concept of choice – of top yacht, great location, guaranteed warm welcome and quality of experience, we have again expanded our programme to offer:

Sailing Holidays, Short Breaks, Milebuilding and RYA Training in Scotland including the Clyde, West Coast, Mull, Skye, the Outer Hebrides, St Kilda, Orkney, Fair Isle & Shetland.

In 2017 we also sail to the beautiful coast of Southern Ireland – Cork and Dingle.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
