    The captain is british-french god sent by the greek gods to guide us through the seas and modern life.

    It is very difficult to describe the transformation we went through, during our week with our Captain, french-english skipper. We arrived with our souls filled with Covid/Corona anxiety frightening the world of tomorrow. We left with new hope, tranquilized for not only the global fright, but also our private everydays challenges - reinforced with the love we, as a married couple, have had since the beginning of our romancing. Our Skipper took us by our hand from the first second and day by day let us into the world of islanding with beautiful mornings, astonishing private lunchspots, amazing harbours with elegant sailorskills, letting us become a reliable crew, which first of all were our hopes for the trip. But most important and surprisingly he showed and tought us, by practice, theory and shared experience - Money has no value on the Sea - survival on the sea is based on comradeship - and anchoring is the most challenging and dangerous part of sailing - and anchoring provokes all the worst in fellow untrained sailors untill Captain with his superior tranqulity sets the standard of good sailorship - not only in The Ilionan Sea, but also as a way of behavouring in our everyday work & private life in Copenhagen. We have already booked this cruise same week, next year with our grandchildren and family - a project that will continue year after year - this is the way we we have earned to live... Lene & Henrik, both hard working professionals, 45 years of loving, 3 children, 3 grandchildren, Copenhagen, Denmark

    Bellissima esperienza!!

    Una splendida settimana, resa tale anche dalla gentilezza, signorilità e disponibilità di lo skipper. Che dire dei porticcioli e delle calette che ci ha fatto scoprire tra Cefalonia e Itaca: semplicemente splendidi!! La barca non è nuovissima ma tenuta bene e la cabina confortevole e pulita. Consiglio vivamente!!!!

    Prima esperienza di vacanza in barca a vela per me e mio marito. Lo skipper è veramente simpatico e disponibile (voto 10!) e ci ha fatto visitare posti bellissimi! Abbiamo nuotato in calette con acqua cristallina e dormito sotto le stelle. Ci siamo divertiti molto...torneremo!
