PEOPLE who are interested in heading out to sea on the historic Swan can now book their trips online.
The Swan Trust is offering a varied programme for 2020, with trips to St Kilda, Norway and Anstruther included on the agenda.
Thanks to NB Communication the trust’s website has been revamped, with a booking function available online for the first time.
This year will be the 25th anniversary of the Swan being used as a sail training and charter vessel.
The boat was built in 1900 as a Fifie sailing herring drifter.
Chair of the Swan Trust David Goodlad said: “Swan is a unique vessel, and a great community asset.
“We have always attracted a range of passengers, both local and from further afield and we hope our 2020 diary will appeal to both.
“We have scheduled trips which help us achieve our core aims, of promoting our heritage and islands and enabling anyone to learn the techniques of sailing a traditional sail Fifie, as well as being attractive to passengers, to help us earn income to maintain the vessel.
“As we are still awaiting confirmation of dates for our Norway trips and some Shetland trips, not all are on our website yet but if you are interested in these please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.”
