We enjoyed having James skipper on our sailing holiday. This was our second sailing adventure and by far the best! James has a relaxed and confident manner. He is great company on board and he makes your sailing enjoyment his full priority. We are novice sailors but his assuring manner ensures you feel safe and confident all the time. He made it his priority to understand what sort of days we wanted 'on the waves' and ashore and responded by showing us spectacular scenery as well as teaching us all we needed to know to enjoy safe sailing. James is great fun and we hope to have the opportunity to enjoy another sailing holiday with him in the future.

We had a a great week in the Ionian with James. It was our first sailing holiday as a family and James looked after us so well. The children loved him and so did we! Nothing was too much of a problem for James and he took us to idyllic places. It was definitely one of our favourite family holidays. We will definitely book again with James.

James' youth belies an amazingly mature grasp of what it takes to be an excellent yacht skipper. His calm good nature ensured that even the most anxious sailors in our group ended the week feeling confident and relaxed. On top of that he's great company and has become a good friend to all our family. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
