Firebird sets sail for the Ski & Sail holiday charter season in Tromso, Norway

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since our last blog so we thought we’d give you an update!

Our crew recently took Firebird through a yard period in Port Adriano where some standard maintenance jobs were carried out ahead of the winter ski and sail season.  Having completed all of our jobs we put our Oyster 885 back in the water where we then travelled on to our Palma home-base to prepare for the delivery trip to Ipswich, before heading on to Tromso, Norway.

Tim, Holly and Ollie transformed Firebird from summer to winter mode, including reinstalling our ski racks and boot warmers! It's set to be a fantastic season, with our friends at Boreal Yachting already enjoying everything sailing in the arctic has to offer - including the spectacular northern lights. Not long until we can share in the delights, just a small matter of 3000NM to sail first!

Our chef Mel has also been busy in the galley making sure the crew have hearty food to sustain and energise them as we sail to chillier climates in search of fresh backcountry snow.

That’s all for now!
