Some Testimonials

feedback from our guests and clients

Nathalie and Jonathan sind sehr angenehme Personen und schauen dass es den Gästen an nichts fehlt. Nathalie kocht sehr gut und Jonathan ist sehr vorsichtig und die Sicherheit der Gäste steht an erster Stelle. Jonathan hat alles gut organisiert. Die Pläne für den nächsten Tag wurden mit der ganzen Crew besprochen und jeder konnte sein Wünsche und Vorschläge einbringen. Dieser Segelturn auf den Seychellen war sehr schön und wir würden es sofort wiederholen!

I needed a Skipper to help me get my 84' Palmer Johnston ketch from Palma de Mallorca to Gibraltar and onto Barcelona for the winter. Jonathan flew in to help me and he did an outstanding job, above and beyond what I expected. The first part of the trip was with my family and then Jonathan organised professional crew to help sail the boat from Gibraltar to Barcelona. He's a great Captain and I highly recommend him.

Jonathan & Nathalie are an exceptional pairing, I can't recommend them highly enough for a Crewed Cabin Charter! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our first sailing/catamaran experience for a week in the Seychelles, Feb. 22nd-29th, 2020, aboard a Lagoon 450. Jonathan is an excellent sailing captain, he made us comfortable and included us in all of the planning processes leading up to the trip as well as day-to-day activity planning during the trip. Nathalie is a WONDERFUL hostess; she went above and beyond to prepare delicious meals on the boat (breakfasts, several lunches & dinners).

We enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking, sunbathing/relaxing, and exploring the islands of Moyenne, La Digue, Praslin, Curieuse, & St Pierre. We spent evenings sharing experiences and stories among the 8 of us, by the end of the week we felt we'd made true friends with both Jonathan & Nathalie, as well as our fellow passengers from Italy. We look forward to our next opportunity to sail with Jonathan & Nathalie!

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.
