"Trip of a lifetime! the boat itself is a thing of beauty, the crew had the right balance of knowledge and crack! Top marks to the chef who created marvellous food including smashing veggie meals. All in all top notch and highly recommended."
"A good deal learned on anchoring procedure. Seeing all sails set and adjusted for the angle of the wind was a great experience. Crew showed great seamanship."
"I really enjoyed the stay on board. Even when the trip was more expensive than other offers I am glad I took this one. I liked that everything was well organized. The only downside was that I had to check in personally in Airlie."
"Great and humorous crew with high standards of care and patience. "
