“This was the absolute best trip ever. I’ve traveled many times. I have to say this was one of the best experiences and adventures of all. Our skipper, Rita was simply amazing. The best! Wonderful skipper, skilled sailor, knowledgeable, so friendly, helpful, genuinely caring of her boat mates. She’s a dream to sail with! If anyone sails, I’d highly recommend requesting her.”
