Thanks for a wonderful couple of days sailing together. Thoroughly enjoyed everyone’s company, and came away having learned a lot about sailing a pilot cutter, humbled from listening to some excellent sailing stories (very thankful that I haven’t raced round Britain, Mick :-)) and realizing that I want some Dubarry boots (thanks for the loan Kim) and a cake recipe!.

All the best, Paul

“Dear Kim, We thoroughly enjoyed an excellent weekend sailing aboard Polly Agatha with Alex and a great group of fellow sailors. We were fortunate in having a good couple of days of wind and sun, that let us see how a pilot cutter handled. Thanks too for the excellent quiches and cakes – we reckon you should add those recipes to your website!”

Best Regards

“Hi Kim,
Just a quick note from Mandy and I to say a big thanks both to you and Alex for a great weekend. Polly Agatha is the most beautiful yacht and we marvelled all weekend at the craftsmanship, makes you proud to be British and it’s great that you are able to share her with others. Alex did a great job as skipper, very patient (except with the hob!). Thanks to your wife too for the tasty quiche’s and cake, fabulous!
All in all a great weekend which we look forward to repeating soon!”

Best wishes, Mick & Mandy

Your hospitality was superb, the home cooked food excellent, and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves, we really appreciate that you were happy to take them along and we could find a good safe working routine with them.

“Thank you for a fantastic couple of days sailing on Polly-Agatha.”

“Collectively, we have aching backs , shoulders, arms, and clearly needed tougher hands, but we have grins from ear to ear.”

“Beautiful boat inside, outside and to sail on. I thought you had a very good and natural style in getting everyone to do the right thing, sail nicely and I guess ever more importantly in today’s risk adverse culture – safely.”

Ben Morley

“I thought the weekend was absolutely outstanding. Perhaps you could let me know how you arranged the weather! I thought PA was a great boat and the company was also great. I learnt a huge amount and I would like to come back for more in due course.”

Very Best regards, Mark Boardman

“Sitting here facing a week, with no doubt, loads of hassle, has been made more bearable, by having such a great weekend out on the water. Your laid back approach, and professionalism to skippering is a credit to you. We both had a thoroughly enjoyable time, great sailing, and good company. PA is an exceptional boat, a thing of beauty and a delight to sail. Thanks”
