Some Testimonials

feedback from our guests and clients

I was a little short handed for the crossing of the Bay of Biscay on my Catana 62 and thankfully was able to get Jonathan onboard to ease the load and add some extra experience. He's a very accomplished sailor who gets things done with a minimum of fuss.
We're looking forward to when he joins us onboard again.

I sailed with 3 other crew with Jonathan as our instructor for a week round the Greek Islands. Jonathan was very flexible to meet the learning needs of all on board and took each of our desires into account when creating our week’s itinerary. He was full of sailing information, very knowledgeable and was able to teach effortlessly at different skill and knowledge levels making each day both fun and informative.

He is a very patient and easy-going instructor, teaching in a manner in which you don’t even know you are learning, ensuring you grasp of both the fundamentals and advanced points of sailing. We encountered some interesting scenarios out on the water which turned out to be great opportunities for instruction.

I look forward to sailing with Jonathan again.

I recently completed the above mentioned sailing week with Jonathan onboard the good vessel Panorama, a 34’ Beneteau Oceanis. Needles to say we had an excellent week and I would highly recommend Jonathan as a skipper for those of you who are looking into his services. Jonathan brought a great atmosphere onboard which bonded the group and really got the best out of us during the week. Whether you’re out to just relax on the water and enjoy the sunshine, learn how to sail or to build on existing knowledge he will cater for all and his calm approach to instruction will put any novice sailor at ease.

I think I can speak for the rest of the group in saying thanks to Jonathan for a brilliant week and I personally would look forward to sailing with you again.

Hopefully see you in the spring!

I think overall it (sailing with Jonathan) was my most dedicated sailing experience ever. Learned heaps of tips and tricks and the atmosphere was relaxed as can be despite that we were in a race and had to take some tight corners.

"After a number of fairly hairy experiences and the realisation that enthusiasm over experience, may not always be the safest bet, we decided to enlist some help from an experienced sailor.  Someone who could help calm my nerve and give us a little more confidence and training so we weren't a hazard to ourselves and other boat users! We welcomed on board Jonathan Ross (JR).  A more calm and patient person, you could ever wish for. 

JR sailed with us from Lavrio to Kos, and we couldn't have done it without him!"

Apprehensive, not knowing what to expect, and a boat full of strangers, Jonathan and Nathalie proved to be a cohesive force for all of us. People from a broad range of backgrounds and nationalities were at ease with Jonathan’s stewardship immediately. All crew from the experienced to the novice were included in daily planning and decision making. We all felt ownership of the holiday, making it a unique experience to remember and highly recommend.

We look forward to sailing with Jonathan and Nathalie in the future.

I thoroughly enjoyed two weeks sailing with Jonathan. He encourages you to develop your sailing skills as much as you want to. I learned loads and always felt completely safe. Nathalie’s catering skills are amazing, creating fantastic meals from the ingredients that are available locally. I would definitely join again.
