I wanted to let you know what a great time we had on ‘Southern Child’ on RTI 2014. The wind was rubbish, at one point we were sailing in 1kn of breeze and doing 2kn of boat speed thanks to the tide down the backside of the Island.

However, Chris and Gareth looked after my guests brilliantly and the whole day passed in an instructive and amusing fashion. We all had a ball, rather red (lobster-ish), and dying for a pint by the end but thoroughly enjoying the day overall.

We could not recommend the yacht more highly and will be chartering again. We managed to get round in a little bit over 11 hours, with good pressure after Bembridge.
Thank you again for allowing us to use the yacht. It is a great event for all comers, both who have sailed a lot and the complete beginner. Thank you too to Chris and Gareth who made the day for my guests.

Just a short note to say thanks for all your hard work over the weekend. I thought that you pitched it just right, the conditions were challenging and for a fairly novice crew I think the balance of physical effort, competition and safety was just right.

Amazing weekend, amazing team and awesome result!!


Really enjoyed the weekend; very well organised - just a shame the ironing didn't get done!!


Thanks for all your help with Antigua Race Week and Southern Child; a great boat and team.


Many thanks for everything, you are a super skipper and have always been great to deal with. I hope the rest of your season is as successful.


Thank you for all your help on the regatta. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was particularly nice to meet other friendly sailors.


I had a great time and enjoyed sailing with you all.
