review 1 Oct 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Swimming in wild bays on remote islands at lunch and at night in the dark.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Pack light, if the weather is favourable you will spend most of your time in a bikini or board shorts... but have some clothes to be prepared for wind and wet... if the winds come up and you end up sailing in higher winds there can be some cool days due to wind and waves.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I am a rookie sailor and feel that I learned a great deal about sailing and the basics of traveling in this way. I enjoyed helping around the yacht and meeting all the new people who joined me. I enjoy varied adventures and I very much enjoyed this trip.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Getting to know the crew and sailing the boat together while learning and having some great laughs along the way and seeing some lovely places!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Pack light - I only used swim shorts and tees during the day and tailored shorts and a shirt in the evenings. Apart from that all you need is a thin waterproof and thin jumper if it gets bumpy with some spray.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes I did but I was a little disappointed that the bins in the marinas weren't marked and this meant all types of rubbish were put in the same bins so recycling didn't really happen. I realise this isn't a travel companies responsibility but may be some pressure could be applied?!

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

I loved it and will definitely do it again - maybe the cyclades next time.
