The planned route will leave Largs Yacht Haven and head roughly North West to pass the north end of Cumbrae before crossing towards Rothsey. From there we will be heading North West up the east Kyle to the Burnt Islands.
Passing the Burnt Islands we will follow the Kyles round to Ardlamont Point.
From there, depending on weather, the options are to head south down Loch Fyne and back to largs via Cumbrae or retrace the route back through the Kyles.
The route distance is between 40 and 50 NM depending on which return leg is chosen. Please ensure
you have enough range including reserve. Fuel is available at Largs Yacht Haven.
Slipway launching will be available at Largs Yacht Haven, check in at reception to arrange this when you arrive.
A suitable lunch stop will be identified to take into account weather conditions expected on the day.
