Il weekend è stato molto piacevole, ottima l’organizzazione da parte di Olaf che si è dimostrato molto capace e competente. L’itinerario può variare a seconda del tempo e altri fattori ma si concorda sempre insieme e le zone che abbiamo visitato erano molto belle e tranquille.

Vacanza incantevole, esperienza davvero unica. Olaf è una bella persona, intelligente e simpatica. È uno skipper competente, capace di trasmettere sicurezza a bordo sia durante la navigazione che durante le manovre perfette! Si è reso disponibile nel cercare di venire in contro alle esigenze di viaggio di tutto l’equipaggio (dalla cambusa, alle tappe della traversata e perfino delle soste bagno), riuscendo così ad accontentare tutti per rendere la vacanza avventurosa e unica!

Olaf est un super skipper, nous avons passer une excellente semaine. Aussi bien dans la navigation que dans les mouillages, nous étions en sécurité. Nous avons pris beaucoup de plaisir, ma famille et moi (6 personnes sur le bateau).
