Sailing in the Wake of Giants

You’re up on deck. The wind rushes past your face. It fills the giant sail and you feel the pure power and glory of nature, as it seems to lift the yacht itself right up from the water. Now you’re off and sailing. And there’s no feeling in the world like this...

Make no mistake, this is a giant adventure. And that’s before you take in the colossal sights like the hulking Samson and Goliath at Harland & Wolff. You’re on the high seas for a tour around Belfast Lough – no previous sailing experience required.
It’s an unforgettable outing that will take you around the spectacular Belfast Lough and the unique sites that call it home. 

You travel as your ancestors once did, harnessing the power of the wind to speed across the Lough’s glass-like waters, pushing the yacht to its limits – and you outside your comfort zone...

You pull together and work as a team - helping the yacht reach faster and faster speeds. Being carried along by the wind like generations before you is a serene and mindful experience, not to mention sustainable – even down to the bamboo plates and bowls your lunch on-board is served in.  

Back on dry land, the Marina at Carrickfergus is a hive of activity, with bars, restaurants, playgrounds, even a 12th century Norman Castle, all within a short walk of each other.

Your giant spirit feels truly embraced. Now you know what ‘the wind in your sails’ means.
