In 1789, Captain Bligh was cast adrift in the middle of the Pacific Ocean- along with 18 other loyal crewmembers – from his ship, HMS Bounty, after a mutiny on board. In 2017, Channel 4 (UK) aired its riveting documentary series, “Mutiny” which saw ex-special forces member, Anthony Middleton, and legendary yachtsman, Conrad Humphreys, lead a group of 7 volunteers, 4,000nm to recreate Bligh’s perilous voyage.

Get a taste of this epic voyage, on the same vessel used in the Channel 4 series, and see if you can survive 6 days both at sea and on land.

Could you survive being set adrift on a replica of an 18th Century lifeboat? Join world-renowned yachtsman, Conrad Humphreys, on the same boat that he used for the hit Channel 4 documentary, “Mutiny”, for a survival experience like none other. As a crew of 9, you’ll first learn how to sail this unique vessel before setting off on a 5-night adventure around the Isle of Skye. Landing on remote beaches, you’ll build your camp for the night. Once the fire is lit, it’s time to cook the food you’ve managed to catch or forage to ensure that you have enough energy for the next day. Each day brings a new adventure, including sailing, bushcraft, trekking and mountain biking – this is the ultimate multi-activity retreat.

ITINERARY

This is rough itinerary. Due to the nature of both the vessel and area, the itinerary is very much subject to both weather and tidal conditions.

Day 1 – Arrive in Kyle of Lochalsh in the afternoon to be welcomed by your skipper, Conrad Humphreys. The rest of the day you’ll get to know your vessel Bounty’s End and all the equipment you’ll need to survive for the next few days

Day 2 – Today we set sail in Bounty’s End. En route, we’ll stop in a quiet spot for lunch before continuing to sail to our first wild camp, and fishing as we go to catch tonight’s dinner. Once ashore, it’s time to set up camp, get the fire going, cook whatever we caught, or forage for some more food if our fishing was not good enough!

Day 3 – In the morning, we leave camp and head inland for a trek or climb. Should conditions be favourable, we’ll head to the beautiful Cuillin Ridge and under instruction, climb the famous rock. Then it’s back to camp for another night under the stars.

Day 4 – Leaving camp, we’ll sail on to find a new place to set up for the next couple of nights.

Day 5 – Waking fresh from another night under the stars, we jump on our bikes and explore some of the best mountain bike trails Scotland has to offer. Back at camp, we’ll toast to our final night under the stars.

Day 6 – All good things must come to an end, and today’s that day. We sail back to where we started, and leave Bounty’s End at lunchtime before heading back to reality.
