Comments from clients who sailed with us in 2005

"Both captain and boat were great! Marcos is a very knowledgeable sailor and knows the islands well. We enjoyed his company very much."

Captain guided charter: S/Y Alba IV, Atlantic 55 with Captain Marcos, 23 April - 30 April 2005, Mykonos to Syros


Got back on saturday from a lovely cruise with Marcos and the Alba IV. Thanks for the champagne and for listing such a great captain and boat. Marcos was particularly kind and helpful when one of our party fell in Naxos and had to go to a clinic for several stitches.

Although the weather was a bit windy and freezing several days, our family enjoyed themselves throughly. We will certainly recommend your company to others. This is the first time I've arranged such an undertaking totally via internet, and, of course, had to trust that it would all be fine. Thanks for making it so painless!

Best regards,

"Great time! Enjoyed Marcos, who is very knowlegeable and helpful."

"Dear Betty! I would like to thank you for the information you sent me by e-mail befor our trip. I would appreciate it if you would extend our thanks to your husband for the very pleasant week we spent on his boat between July 16th and 23rd. We enjoyed the islands, the swimming, the information he offered us throughout the week. Please tell him that Daniel will never forget the ride on the Motorbike in Mykonos! We wish the both of you all the best! Cordially, Trudy K" (Switzerland)

"Dear Francesca,
We returned from our trip through the Cyclades almost two weeks ago and all sorts of responsibilities have kept me busy and unable to write to you about our trip. First of all, I would like to thank you for all of the e-mails you sent me. You were very helpful and patient as we were trying to decide which boat to choose, where exactly to sail, etc. Everything worked out very well thanks to your professional help. You can be sure that we will recommend your company to our friends.
We had a great time! Captain Marcos was exceptionally nice and always ready to give good advice. He made us feel secure right from the start and took us to wonderful places. (We appreciated Schinoussa most of all.)

I wish you all the best! Sincerely, Trudy K" (Switzerland)

Captain guided charter: S/Y Alba IV, Atlantic 55 with Captain Marcos, 16 July - 23 July 2005, Mykonos - Syros

"Dear Francesca,
We had a very good time on the boat and with Marco. Particularly, we had full trust in him in every respect from taking our children for a drink to sailing in harsh weather conditions. Probably the best recommendation for the overall trip incl. your organisation is that my wife immediately
forwarded your mail address to some colleagues in her office.
Kind regards,
Dieter M" (Germany)

"Thanks for letting us sail off in what is obviously your pride and joy! We had a great time. We thought you were great, it felt hassle free, your email communication prior to the trip was great."

Bareboat yacht charter: S/Y Sophia, Sun Odyssey 33 from Skiathos, 21 April - 30 April 2005.

Jonathan, it was great having you as our captain on the Koralia 3. Enjoyed seeing some Greek isles and sampling the cuisine. Your cooking is fantastic too. Thanks for a wonderful week.

Captain J... May the sun always shine on your face, the wind be at your back and a beautiful bay be boat free!! Thanks for the week of fun!! The overall experience was fantastic - we would never have seen the culture and cuisine as up close and personal without a skipper as you are - or met such great people. Too bad the wind didn't co-operate. But there's always next time!

Hey Jonathan, thanks for your hospitality, yummy food and great vacation!

Jonathan, thanks for showing us a great time in Greece.

Crewed yacht charter on Koralia 3 with Captain Jonathan Chandler, Paros - Athens, 06-13 June.

"The Captain was knowledgeable, accommodating and helpful. The boat was sturdy and a pleasure to sail. The itinerary was perfect - a good mix of touristed 'must see' villages and remote beaches."
Laura C. USA
Crewed charter on S/Y Idylle, Beneteau First 15.50, with Captain Thomas, Ios - Naxos, June

I wanted to get back to you to let you know how great of a time we all had on our trip. It was probably one of the best trips I've ever taken and I regret not making it even longer! Most of all though, I wanted to pass on how great George (Jorgos I believe in Greek) was as a skipper. He was a great guide, teacher, and eventual friend on our trip. I would recommend him to anyone considering using him. We all agreed, he helped make our trip. For now back to the rainy London weather, but hopefully we'll be back there again, maybe even next year with a larger group! I hope all is well.
Thanks for everything
Warm Regards

Ryan S., London, UK.

Skippered charter on S/Y Xenia, Bavaria 36 (2003) from Paros - Athens, July 2005

At first I found it a struggle to get used to the conditions, but after your warm and comforting welcome it did not take long to start relaxing and enjoying myself!! The rough seas and high winds were an adventure which I will never forget. The best part had to be the phosphorous water when we were all shimmering in the water. Thank you for everything and for making me discover the wonders of the sea! Martina (fender girl)
Maritina S. UK. (The weather was quite strong that week!).

Skippered charter on S/Y Valentine, Atlantic 44, with George and Melody from Aegina, July 2005

What can I say? We both had a great time, are both determined to do Day Skipper theory between now and October 2007. If George and Melody are still in business then, we'll be booking well in advance to ensure that we once again have a great, enjoyable time with them.
I hope that says it all.
