We had a fantastic week sailing with Simon Who was a very skilled skipper with excellent seamanship skills. We explained what are objectives were for the sailing trip and Simon tailored the itinerary to make sure we covered everything we wanted to and much more. We anchored in some stunning locations. Simon has a great sense of humour, was always on hand to help and very good company. A sailing trip with Simon is highly recommended!

Had a fabulous week visiting some beautiful places and learning how to sail with Simon. He was very knowledgeable, patient and easy to get along with. My partner and I both felt as though we learnt a lot during the holiday and we would recommend to others.
