Skye One Day Dinghy Sailing Experience

Skye Dinghy Sailing Experience

Skye One Day Dinghy Sailing Experience - NEW

Enjoy a different view of the Cuillin peaks and Portree's colourful waterfront from the helm of a Skye Sailing dinghy with Skye Sailing Club; a local charity awarded Royal Yachting Association Club of the Year in 2016.

Bring a packed lunch and training shoes and Skye Sailing will provide the rest including wetsuits, spray top, buoyancy aid and safety cover along with expert instruction from RYA qualified hosts. If you have some sailing experience, your host skipper will even quickly assess your skills before they have you controlling the boat by the end of the day. From the boat, you'll get a complete different perspective of your unique and beautiful surroundings.

Price includes Temporary Membership of Skye Sailing Club and all taxes. If a session is cancelled due to weather, prior to starting, 100% refund will be provided or alternative dates agreed. If the session needs to be stopped early due to prevailing conditions or at the customer wishes no refund is provided. Full payment is required at the time of booking. 


For lovers of
outdoor activities, sailing.
