Surfing across Scotland


Home yesterday after a tremendous journey by sail and oar across Scotland from west to east as part of Sail Caledonia – across a sea loch, the Caledonian Canal, Loch Ness and on to the Beauly Firth. Over 50 nm as the crow flies.

One thing I learnt is that sailing singlehanded, it's difficult to take photographs, especially in more exciting conditions. There's a lot I want to write about, but I'll wait until I have access to other people's photographs.

Over the next few weeks, I plan to share my experience of long distance cruising in the Welsford Walkabout, including sleeping on board under the boat tent. This will include the news that not only is it possible to surf in the Walkabout, but also that you can travel most of the length of Loch Ness that way. I'll also tell how I went swimming with Nessie.
