Z02-23: Passage: Scotland->Orkney->Faroe islands (300M)
The first few days we sail to the Orkney Islands, allowing everyone to get used to the ship in a relaxed way. From Wick, we sail into the notorious Pentland Firth. Infamous for its strong tidal currents, which can reach 16 knots at spring tide, a nice challenge.
Depending on the weather, we will sail into Scapa Flow to anchor close to Stromness, or we can sail out towards Kirkwall. Both are good and atmospheric harbours where we can prepare for the crossing to the Faroe Islands.
Then we have a distance of about 200 miles to go to the Faroe Islands. With good weather conditions this will be about a day and a half non-stop, but it can also take a bit longer. Nevertheless, a nice journey in the wake of the Viking trail and what makes it very special is that the sun is hardly going down.
If the weather cooperates, we have a few days left to explore the Southern Faroe Islands. Like Suduroy. Where we can make a beautiful walk to a beautiful cave and then enjoy a delicious snack in a cozy café afterwards.
On these islands, the clock seems to go a little slower, forcing us as well to slow down😊. The Faroe Islands are spectacularly beautiful due to their rugged and green landscape. The fog and consequent special light combined with the lack of trees and buildings, creates a uniquely mysterious and desolate atmosphere. We will finish this trip in Tørshavn, the capital city with wooden houses and grass on the roofs, which also houses the government.
The daily distances are between 20 and 200 nautical miles. The above schedule is subject to weather, wind and tide.
