Join the crew of Irene for a six night voyage across to the Isles of Scilly. This stunning archipelago of islands provide the perfect get away for those who enjoy deserted beaches, stunning wildlife and fabulous scenery.
The passage from the mainland over to the Scillies takes you off the most Western part of England as Irene rounds Lands End. The passage can occasionally get a little lumpy here, but not for long! We'll pass the Wolf Rock lighthouse where it's actually possible to land in very calm weather.
The crew aim to make one of these passages a night sail if conditions allow. The lack of light pollution makes for some spectacular stargazing.
When you arrive on the Islands, the crew will keep the itinerary loose to allow you to explore Scilly at your own pace.
Pricing from £870 per person, including all your food on board.
