Charter during summer 2012:
The boat was the best we have ever sailed. Spacious and comfortable accommodations. Very clean, beautifully decorated and well maintained. The crew did a good job of keeping everything in good working order and comfortable for the guests. It sailed beautifully and was very stable.
The food was amazing !!! Creatively prepared and well presented, Enora put out every effort to satisfy our requests for special things like lobster, scallops, and fresh caught fish. The drinks as well were creative, and generous. I'd give her a 10/10 on the food and drink. It takes really special people to meet complete strangers and be with them in close quarters for a week, while making them feel at ease and happy. Eddy, Enora, Guy and Emma are these people. Eddy is not only the captain, but sort of a tour operator as well. He arranged a driver and tour of the for us on Corsica. It was a good way to get a look at the island for an afternoon.
I would love to sail this boat and crew again sometime in the near future and do a longer sailing itinerary. The boat and crew are right for it. We had a really great time!!
Thanks again for suggesting this boat. It was better than expected and I would recommend it to anyone!!
