Reykjavik – Vagur – Isles of scilly / the hague – Gosport


For the truly adventurous sailor, the south coast of Iceland, the North Atlantic, and the famously dynamic weather surrounding the Danish Faroe Islands will never disappoint.

The departure for the passage south will be focussed on any low pressure systems sweeping across the Atlantic. There will be the opportunity to explore coastal cruising on the South Coast of Iceland or in the Faroe Islands as we sail to Vagur in the Southwest of the archipelago.

This passage could go either side of Great Britain. After analysis of the weather, the west route would leave Scotland to port and you’ll be sailing south through the Irish Sea before rounding the Isles of Scilly. Should the easterly route be more suited to the forecast conditions you’ll be sailing down the North Sea towards the English Channel with a likely port stop at The Hague, Netherlands.

Clipper 68 Adventure Sailing

Vagar and Tindholmur islands in sunset, Faroe Islands
A common sighting around southern Iceland and the Faroe Islands are Grey Seals. Harbor Seals rarely spotted. You may be fortunate to see long-finned pilot whales (a species of oceanic dolphin) and the more exotic killer whales. Keep your camera ready and a look out for northern bottlenose whales which have a strict migration route in August – September which our route crosses on this leg.


We are curious. We are restless. We are adventurers by nature. An expedition with SKIRR is truly extraordinary.
