"A great day out"
Living in a sailing village (Burnham on Crouch) I am slightly embarrassed to admit that this was my first time on a small yacht. Well it might be small, it might be large I have no concept of where th… More

"10 jours de "voile" sans tirer un bord!"
Avec son exquise politesse Britanique, le skipper Ray Benson avait omis de nous informer qu'en plus de notre famille de 4 personne, il y aurait à bord un de ses vieux amis de la police qui viend… More
In answer to this quite unfair review. I often have a crew member with me for both day trips and weekly charters. Evidence of which can be clearly seen on our website photographs. The crew member I use most regularly was on this occasion unable to assist me so I asked another previously used crew member with RYA qualifications if he would assist me with my duties. I thought that this would be beneficial to the family on their holiday.
We were unable to raise the sails on many occasions because of the lack of wind or the wind was in the wrong direction and as you pointed out in a previous email no other yachts had their sails out for the same reason.
Often because of light winds great distances in travel are not possible without use of the engine.
I have not previously had any complaints of this nature.

"The best way to see the Greek Islands"
We spent the most amazing 3 days with Ray and Stuart on Mala. Cruising around Zante and Kefalonia. They made us feel instantly at ease and Tom absolutley loved sailing on the boat and helping Stuart. The places we went to were stunning and it is a great way to see the islands. Would definately reccomend to anyone looking for something special to do and will be back next year for more high sea adventures!!!

"Best Greece Sailing adventure"
We spent a fabulous week with Ray sailing Zakinthos, Kefalonia and Ithaka. We couldn't imagine a better skipper to sail with. From the rose petals greeting us on the bed, to Rays stories, and sailing the most beautiful islands imaginable, there could be no better holiday. Ray is friendly and very easy to live with on board the ship. He is a fantastic host who is extremely knowledgeable about the Ionian area. He customized the trip to our interests to include scuba, great snorkeling spots and tours of the caves and subterranean lake near Sami. The Blue caves and shipwreck beach of Zakinthos were as beautiful as the pictures in all the travel magazines. To snorkel their and return to the boat to enjoy the beautiful and delicious lunch that Ray had prepared makes the experience absolutely perfect. The red sea stars, abundance of colourful fish and aquatic life in the coral and on the rocks were breathtaking and the crystal clear turquoise waters had unlimited visibility.
Ray can show you all the best places for music and dining along the way to make your journey a truly unforgettable experience. His recommendations for our itinerary were spot on and our trip couldn't have been more enjoyable or more memorable.
