I guess the communication was the biggest issue, despite speaking some English relaying information back was poorly executed by the skipper, which have cost me my flight, some lack of empathy during hiking trips instead of allowing time to rest he was pushing for faster or take the bus.
Speaking French round the table despite 2 people not speaking the language out of 4 was little rude, otherwise he was very caring when I was unwell during sailing at times and provided effective medical solution, The trip however was a blast, beautiful islands and locals with packed activities, and amazing memories to remember. ---------------------- SKIPPER ------------------------------ Hello Sandra,
I'm really sorry that the cruise you booked didn't live up to your expectations. I did everything I could to create a good atmosphere on board, even with a mixed crew speaking different languages. The holidays you booked were a sailing course where you had to travel several kilometers. My goal was to transmit the passion and rudiments of sailing. For an itinerary that includes the Grenadines Islands, there are many hours to devote to navigation.
Sail fast, Live slow!
53 feet boat well updated with new sails and modern equipment without loosing the cachet of a vintage boat with tek-dek, etc. Designed to feel like home, all comforts on board, even TV and AC if it's what you're into and according to your budget. My bed was comfortable. If a couple, I would ask the master bedroom. With real shower and space that I never seen before in a sailing boat. We got an average of 8/9 knots of speed on the first day with picks of 12 knots!
Great destinations. Beautiful spots. Clear waters full of fish and turtles. He delivers according whatever you are into and fixes whatever missing on board. Good host, Italian flair, recently reconverted in the Caribbeans, passionated, helpful and basic cooking. Does the best barracuda ceviche! Ask him to saber the Champagne ;)
Check prices and what services are incl or not before booking, as with different languages, miscommunications happen. Also about moorings prices w service.
Arrivée á bon port!
Great sailing week. Michele was a great skipper and although there was no much wind he made everything possible to use the engine as little as possible. He was very easy going and made that week very enjoyable: wonderful beaches, unforgettable sunsets, amazing landscapes, nice villages and pleasant company.
Paradise week in the Grenadines. This sailboat is a very efficient boat that allows you to combine the pleasure of sailing and learning. Hervé takes the time to explain each maneuver and answers all the questions. He is also a good cook! There was a very good understanding between the different teammates, jovial atmosphere on the edge and exceptional anchorages.
Hello, I'm Marco, I wanted to thank the skipper Francesco and the skipper Anna for the professionalism, courtesy and kindness of how they welcomed me and the other guests in the 2018 end-of-year cruise. Francesco is an exceptional and experienced sailor, we have always felt safe in any situation. A heartfelt thanks for the wonderful holiday that you made me pass. Hello and good luck
I had a great week on board to start this new year.
The combined welcome and hospitality of Anna and Alfonso are very appreciable
A week of tranquility to enjoy the life on board animated by Anna, life on the sea and all winds skippered by Alfonso, with the discovery of the terrestrial environment of the islands and their inhabitants.
In summary ready to go back on the sailboat
Buen vento e ci vediamo presto

I can't believe I didn't write a review after my amazing time with Riccardo and Guilia in the Caribbean. It was perfect and I quickly felt relaxed and like I was on an adventure with old established friends. The food was amazing and although Guilia may not have the many years of experience at sea like Riccardo, she does great judgement, skill and confidence. We laughed and talked and decided on all the small route decisions together. I felt very welcome and cared for and of course the backdrop of the Grenadines was spectacular too.
Alessandro the ideal skipper for a boat holiday.
His professionalism in managing the boat gave me confidence. His decisions have always been considered and discussed by the group. A cheerful funny person and a great cook.. while sailing he caught several fish (tuna, barracuda, etc.) cooking them with the help of a nice hostess Priscilla made our days on the boat pleasant carefree and with scenery of bays and unforgettable beaches. It made each day different from the other.
A downside? yes c is .. despite suffering from seasickness and it was my first experience on the boat I will not be able to help but choose another catamaran holiday ... also for those who want to see many islands and dive into many waters from blue to aquamarine blue with beaches from black sand to white meeting sea turtles colorful fish and intense vegetation with inhabitants ready to give you lobsters and fruit .... CARIBBEAN
Despite the delay of the boat, engaged in the Atlantic crossing, and the male-only company, it was a mythical experience. Christian is an experienced skipper, helpful and endowed with rare kindness. It has the advantage of always smiling and being able to make light the moments in which there are small problems. He knows well the places he goes to and often also the locals. In addition to visiting wonderful places and beaches, one afternoon we ventured into the search for coconuts, we created tools from scratch with what was on the beach, it was a lot of fun. I recommend everyone a boat holiday with him! :)
We immediately found ourselves at ease with Orio, An Atlantic crossing behind us and a four-year experience in the Caribbean, and with his partner Daniela, both very prepared and passionate about the sea. Very comfortable boat, spotless, the navigation was fast and safe. Wind and solar generator have never made us miss the services on board, fridge always at the maximum. Most of the sailing took place by sail, as the wind was never lacking. Beautiful islands visited. Orio has also organized wonderful trips inside, to the waterfalls, to the thermal waters and mud, to the local markets.
We stayed in several bays, both at the buoy, at anchor and sometimes in the marinas.
We almost always had lunch on board, excellent home cooking of Daniela, imaginative cook, and Orio, very expert in the preparation of fish just caught by him in tasty tartare and grilled on the barbecue on board. An unforgettable experience that we will repeat.
Fourth holiday with Alessandro, fourth success. In addition to a great skipper, a great organizer of holidays by sea. Double New Year's Eve, double sparkling wine, double bathroom! A beautiful experience also thanks to all the hilarious crew. More I can not say why... what happens in the boat, remains in the boat.
