Sailing in the Faroes

Sail the Viking shores!

We have a wide variety of trips to offer, sailing around the Faroe Islands on board Enniway.

Designed by a French sailboat designer, Enniway has both good sailing qualities and beauty. She is, without a doubt a perfect seagoing sailing boat, adapted to an ocean where capricious winds blow and can sail at a angle of 40 degrees up against the wind.

This summer we are also welcoming Black lady to the fleet.


Black Lady is 44 feet and rigged as a ketch, with ample space both on deck and below she will work with day trips as well as bareboat charter and can hold 12 passengers.



Looking forward to welcoming you onboard!
