Board Swan in Brønnøysund and begin your adventure! You will be sailing the Swan back to her home harbour of Lerwick in Shetland via the most stunning scenery you have ever seen.

Sail through the sheltered streams to Ålesund, enjoying the scenery as you make your way south. Your trip back across the north sea to Shetland will be dependent on the weather, and the skipper will be paying close attention to those systems in preparation for your journey. You may have to wait a little longer for an appropriate weather window or leave earlier than scheduled - safety is the most important consideration.

The Swan will remain your home for the duration of your voyage, and as a sail training vessel, everyone on board gets their sleeves rolled up to take care of sailing and domestic duties, from skipper to the least experienced. You will find you develop a real sense of ownership of the boat; your efforts making an appreciable difference to the vessel and your fellow crew members. You will take part in the watch system, often run on a 4 hour on/8 hour off pattern.

Disembark in Lerwick, Shetland for your return journey home and your lifetime of new and unforgettable memories!

Please make sure you have appropriate flexible travel tickets and that your travel insurance is in order as your return date is quite likely to be affected by the weather.
