January - March 2017 The new year sees the second running of our expedition down the coast of Morocco. This is way off the beaten track for yachts and a mixture of stunning sailing and great exploration ashore. The expedition finishes in the Canaries, where Hummingbird then has a wonderful 10 day cruise around the Canaries. Short day sails, a couple of longer passages and beaches and blissful anchorages galore. She then moves into our 'baby' ocean trip - the 350nm sail from the Canaries to Madeira. This is the perfect introduction to ocean sailing and is followed by two big ocean passages. First she heads up to the Azores, and then the big 1000nm+ from the Azores to the UK

July - September 2017

We're into big expeditions time. Up in the high latitudes and very remote areas, the creature comforts may diminish a bit but the adventure ramps up to the maximum. Oriole turns west for a brilliant ocean passage to the north west coast of Iceland. From there she explores the westfjords and finishes in the capital Reykjavik. Hummingbird meanwhile heads north to Svalbard and toward the edges of the polar ice cap. This is as wild and remote as it gets. A second expedition brings her back down to Tromso, and then its another glorious romp through the Lofoten Islands back to Bodo. In September, Oriole sails from Iceland to the Hebrides and then down through the whisky distilleries of Scotland en route to Bristol. Hummingbird meanwhile has a Passage Making Masterclass down the coast of Norway, before finishing with the viking route from Norway to Bristol.
