Lovely old girl (the boat); patient wise man (the skipper); spectacularly tasty (the food): plentiful (the showers!). All that meant the Atlantic crossing was 'stress free' especially as Chris doesn't believe in creating unnecessary anxiety and that rubs off on the crew...
Just back from Scotland from our May 2021 adventure, to say it was amazing is an understatement, having pretty much zero sailing experience I was a little nervous as to what to expect, Skipper Chris was brilliant And a great teacher he teaches You along the way.
If you are thinking of booking on a saga adventure I would say just do it .I just returned from the trip to the outer Hebrides and st kilda last week and absolutely loved it .. it was a privilege to be part of the crew on this great boat .
The boat and the skipper are fantastic - solid, calm and reassuring. I learned a lot about keeping body and soul together, and how to use various bits of kit that aren't on other boats I use. Would I do it again? Yes - just waiting for the right time.
