Come to Orkney for a unique sailing experience! To the North, there are over 40 islands and skerries to explore, with excellent cruising and never far from a safe haven. To the South of the Orkney mainland is Scapa Flow – which is the deepest natural harbour in Northern Europe and has wrecks from both WW1 and WW2. Sail Orkney runs bareboat and skippered charters and is based at Kirkwall Marina. The coastline provides a number of safe anchorages, while there is an abundance of wildlife to see. For all you sailing enthusiasts this is a wonderful area to explore.
