Sail Caledonia: the Scottish Raid
Sail Caledonia/the Scottish Raid aims to provide an opportunity for competitive and relaxed sailing and rowing in small boats and to encourage the use and development of such boats for cruising and “expedition making.” Whilst completing the 66-mile navigation from coast to coast, one of the great inland waterway journeys of the world, there are many opportunities to stop and explore the Great Glen and surrounding areas. For accompanying non-sailing family members there are always a wide range of activities and entertainment provided by local communities and businesses with everything from white-water rafting to highland dancing on offer.
The experience of sailing coast-to-coast through the spectacular scenery of the Caledonian Canal, including racing in both the Atlantic and North Sea water is very special. We also recognise that some Raid crews are very proficient with boats specifically designed for this type of event and hence we have introduced something really challenging for them - the “Loch Ness Challenge”…
