A Troon Yacht Haven winter resident has had his Scottish circumnavigation published in Practical Boat Owner Magazine.
Dr Peter Lyle, along with his wife Jean and brother David, took the trip on his Jeannaeu 36i Albatross from Troon earlier in 2014. Sailing northwest, they passed the Isle of Mull and Skye before heading northeast to Orkney and Shetlands. The return passage took them through the Caledonian Canal from Inverness to Loch Lochy, before finally heading south via the Mull of Kintyre.
This epic journey five months, over 1,100NM and one brief conversation with the Scottish First Minister, has now been published within the Practical Boat Owner Magazine, November edition (page 72-75).
Read about the Scottish Circumnavigation on the Yacht Albatross blog or download the article from edition 580 November 2014 of the Cruising Guide section of the Practical Boat Owner Magazine.
