2022 Information and tariffs

This trip is a celebration of all that is good about the British and Northern Irish coast, the wildlife, the scenery, the regional food, the industrial, marine and military heritage, challenging sailing, local dialects and traditional music.


Snark is visiting the four nations that make up the UK - England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales - stopping at each nation’s capital, as well as other historic ports.


Why not sail around Britain aboard Snark on her big adventure? 

How long will it take to sail around the UK?​

Starting from Plymouth, Snark will sail over 2,100 miles over three months. We've split the trip into ten legs, each covering a particular part of the British or Northern Irish coast. Each leg will be between 5 and 11 sailing days, with embarkation the afternoon before and disembarkation the morning after. You can choose to join one leg or more.

Snark will coast hop between ports and anchorages, covering between 25 and 50 nautical miles per day and on a few days up to 60 miles. There will be plenty of time on some days to explore the interesting harbours and anchorages we visit, while on others we will be sailing most of the day.
