Default Hello from Belgium

Hello all,
Next may we plan to sail to Norway (Bergen, Stavanger) from Belgium or South Holland, via the East UK coast. Depending on weather forecast, we could go up to the Shetlands. We sail on an old deutch ketch made of steel, 12.5m long, 3.5 m width, 1.8 m draft. The owner/skeeper is a very experienced sailor, I am an intermediate experienced sailor and my brother is a beginner.
We would appreciate receiving advices on the ports you recommend along the uk coastline.
Thanks in advance.

Welcome! It sounds like you have some exciting plans. Sorry to say I haven't been to the UK via sail. However, I hope another of our members can assist you.

Thank you redbopeep. Indeed, we are very excited to discover Norway. From my side, it will be the first time I'll sail in the Atlantic.
