The World Heritage site awaits your visit, by Flotilla, Sprint or Passage Race


Venture into the North Atlantic through some of the world's best sailing grounds.  Add to the mix some technical challenges and, if you wish, a racing element and you have a great recipe for adventure.  Combined with a series of shore-side activities "The St. Kilda Challenge" is hosted by Comann na mara in partnership with the race organising authority Clyde Cruising Club and centres around Lochmaddy on the island of North Uist in Scotland's outer Hebrides.




Do you want the reassurance of sailing to St. Kilda with a group of like minded adventurers?  Don't want to race, just cruise?  Then the flotilla option may be for you.  Departing from Lochmaddy, destination Village Bay St. Kilda, you have the option to stop at St. Kilda before returning to North Uist for the festivities ashore.

With two race options for 2018 the choice of challenge lies with you!  Join the sprint race from Lochmaddy to St. Kilda or the longer passage race from Rathlin Island, finishing also at St. Kilda.  After some time ashore both fleets will then cruise to Lochmaddy to join in the shore activities.
