Ex HIGHLAND EXPRESS 2016 24 May to 30th Aug 2016


The West Coast of Scotland is a fantastic place to sail and extremely popular during the Summer months and I know of several units in 2015 that have charted civilian yachts with a typical cost for a 7 day charter of £2,000 which is a big ask from AT funding and personal contributions.
HMSTC REDCOAT is coded for 8 crew and is ideal for this type of exercise and it only costs £50.00 for the week plus a £150.00 refundable deposit.
A typical week charter would allow a circumnavigation of the Isle of Mull or to sail to the Island of Skye or out to the Outer HebrIdes, there are endless possibilities.


1. The yacht will be based in Dunstaffnage marina near Oban.
2. The yacht is available for a 1 week charter (Tuesday to Tuesday)
3. The skipper needs to be a Yachtmaster Offshore or Yachtmaster Coastal with a minimum of a Day Skipper Mate.
4. There will be a requirement to pay a £150.00 refundable deposit (equates to 1 weeks mooring if unit cancels at last minute) and £50.00 for the charter. Both payable with application.
5. The unit chartering the yacht will be responsible for the cost of fuel,CILOR and gas.
6. The exercise is open to individuals at a cost of £80.00 and I will group individuals together to form crews or they will be allocated places on the JSASTC mile builder legs.
