Departing from Kuressaare

Yacht Sophia



Wondering what to do on your summer holiday in Saaremaa? Have you ever thought of visiting the beautiful island of Abruka, which is only an hour’s sail away from Kuressaare?


Since the island is far from the mainland, not even many Estonians have visited Ruhnu. Nevertheless, there are several reasons why it is called the Pearl of the Livonian Gulf.

Kapten Priit Kuusk

Skipper Priit

Priit – a man who has been involved with the sea and sailing for more than 30 years. As for his adventures in recent years, he was one of the crew members of the sailing ship Admiral Bellingshausen, which visited Antarctica in January 2020 as part of the “Antarctica 200”. He served as a helmsman-mechanic on the yacht for five months.

In 2021, he sailed with Admiral Bellingshausen as captain on an Arctic expedition visiting such exotic destinations as Spitsbergen, Greenland and the Faroe Islands, covering 10,000 nautical miles in five months…

Admiral Bellingshausen, with Priit as captain, is said to have come closest to the North Pole of all Estonian yachts and sailed over 80 latitudes of the Northern Hemisphere. With Priit, there is never a dull moment at sea – good humor and adventure stories from the North and South Poles are guaranteed.

Priit also works as a commodore of Saaremaa Sea Sports Society, so it is safe to say that in his veins flows not blood, but sea.
