THE EVENT OF THE SEASON

Fantastic sight seeing opportunities and great for ship lovers alike. A high adrenaline opportunity for Excelsior sailing in close quarters to many other ships.

Last year one of our regular volunteers sailed with Boy Leslie another smack in this race and reported great things which you can read about here.

After the racing you will disembark at Skive which has great connections to the airports of Denmark.

Embark:- Løgstør, Denmark – 12pm (TBC), Monday 10th September 2018.

Disembark:- Skive, Denmark- 12pm, Sunday 16th September 2018. (NOTE:- UK flights currently £22 leaving Billund on the evening of 16th to Stansted BARGAIN! as of 10th August)

£570 per person full board With BURSARY FUNDING for 18 – 25’s Reducing the cost to £450. Take part in the previous voyage from Lowestoft sailing from 3rd to 16th for just £900 pp. 

NEW FUNDING OPPORTUNITY – With a massive thanks to ASTO we now have additional funding for young people under the age of 25, subsidising by a further 50%! to access this great sailing opportunity. – Please email us for more information. 

Suitable for over 18’s this trip is well placed to make a fantastic adventure at sea for all groups and individuals alike. Arriving in style on such a historic ship is very rewarding. whilst being able to hunker down in her warm saloon makes the perfect recuperation from a busy work life when the weather up on deck turns wild.

To get an inside track on what life is like during the Limfjorden Rundt, our volunteer Will went and scoped it out last year. Read more.

You can enjoy many elements of the traditional skills sailing a vessel in the last century can offer, no matter who you are or what your age, a voyage with Excelsior will be life changing.
