The whole crew was incredibly friendly and fun to be with. They were fantastic at their individual duties. They made our trip a most memorable one. I could not imagine a better crew to be with for a week. They let us do whatever we wanted to and were very attentive to what we needed and did everything with a huge smile. We left there with 4 new friends.
King's Ransom far exceeded even our high expectations. It was like sailing a Ritz Carlton. It had tons of room even for our group of 9. It was kept immaculately clean and was incredibly comfortable. It took the waves very smoothly and had a very gentle roll at night. Fantastic.
We had three 5-star meals a day, plus snacks and apps. Niki is a very talented chef and to be able to prepare the quality of food we received on a sail boat is simply unbelievable. It was presented beautifully and we looked forward to every meal.
The great thing about it was that we woke up every morning and decided what to do and where to go. We enjoyed not having to work to some hard and fast itinerary that someone else set. We were free to go or stay where we were. There was no pressure from the captain to do or go anywhere, but he provided excellent information for us to make a very informed decision every day.
You did a fantastic job. I would definitely use Sailing Directions in the future.
