The Northern Waters of Caithness and North Sutherland are probably the last unspoilt yacht sailing destination around the UK coastline.
Wick Marina is strategically placed for coastal or international passages, and provides safe berthing, toilets and showers, and all the usual town and harbour facilities and services. Thurso Bay offers a large deep water sheltered sailing area with few restrictions.
It is also possible to charter or hire a boat. In addition, the Pentland Firth Yacht Club hold regular sail training and racing events as well as club sails in Thurso Bay.
