  1. What a FANTASTIC day (8.5 Hrs) Definitely recommend this for All age groups, We Sailed out onto the Firth of Clyde with SAM as our Captain, We saw porpoises, Seals, loads of speices of birds etc.
    We felt Very Safe with SAM, who would let us help him if we wanted to sail the yacht or help rig out the sails etc, Food was great,(You can have whatever you want just let Sam or Jenny Know)) Weather was Brilliant for us, but SAM wanted more wind! that would have been exhilarating for him tho! i don’t Know about us Lol.
    If your thinking about going, just Do it ! Its great,
    Thanks Again SAM and JENNY, we WILL c u again. Gary and Linda.
