The Ultimate Sailing Experience

Old Pulteney Whisky Bottles

The Old Pulteney is one of a fleet of 12 super yachts which departed London on 1st September 2013 on a year long voyage around the world, stopping in the northern French Port of Brest before a tour that will take in Rio, Cape Town, Australia, Singapore, Qingdao, San Francisco, Panama, Jamaica, New York and Londonderry – concluded by a homecoming in London in July 2014.

The crew is made up of men and women from all walks of life – from retired engineers to taxi drivers to housewives – who give up their normal lives to train and take on the adventure of a lifetime. Scots, Adam Nunn from Dundee and Charles Slater, who originates from Orkney are amongst them, along with people from twelve different countries – the UK, the US, Australia, Brazil, Canada, the Netherlands, Hungary, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Portugal and Spain.  Find out more about the race here

    Go out and show the World how it's done. I should have sent this two years ago.

    Missing this is enough to make me want to switch back to Macallan.

    It seems we have opened the Old Pulteney too late for the competition but nevertheless it was a fascinating race. I'd still love the chance to a sail on a large ocean going yatch.

    I had the pleasure of meeting the yacht and some of her crew at the Scottish boat show at Kip marina two weeks ago. I was so impressed with the boat and her crew and it was a tremendous experience to tour the boat and chat to the crew. I spent several hours on board asking many questions and listening to tales. The crew, despite it being the end of a long weekend of visitors, couldn't have been more professional, pleasant and informative. The genuine enthusiasm and excitment that the crew emanated was so infectious that I nearly signed up for the next race. The whisky was superb too. Thank you so much for a most memorable afternoon and well done to everyone. You are a credit to the boat, the sponsors and the event.

    2 July 2014

    This morning, we rounded the top of Scotland, an exciting moment as it is renowned for tidal over-falls and eddies and proper navigation is required. The field is still really close together with 8 boats in sight of each other.
