THE PRIZE - DAY 1
Leaving from Kip Marina where Clyde Challenger is berthed, head south towards the Cumbraes whilst keeping your eyes open for the abundant sea life in the Clyde Estuary. Cruising around the south end of the Isle of Bute you will see Loch Fyne stretch out ahead as you make for the award-winning Portavadie Marina, Loch Fyne. Unwind with some shopping, and enjoy complimentary use of the new leisure experience, then perhaps sample some local food and drink in the Marina Restaurant whilst watching the sunset.
THE PRIZE - DAY 2
Journey back down Loch Fyne and marvel at the breathtaking scenery and sparkling waters, before taking a scenic routing through the glorious Kyles of Bute and on to Kip Marina. Upon your return, dine out at The Chartroom restaurant where you’ll savour fresh local produce whilst overlooking the enchanting landscapes of Scotland’s beautiful west coast.
On board you can take the helm and lead the crew in manoeuvres, assist the navigator or mate in the journey. Or if you simply want to bask in the experience, relax and enjoy one of the many captivating sailing stories as you are led by your skipper and crew.
