Some Testimonials

feedback from our guests and clients

Jonathan is a great skipper. I have been sailing with him and my wife along the northern coast of Sicily. In this week I have learned much about sailing. Jonathan is skilful, passionate and focused, teaching from personal experience, and excited to show you the way. His easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. I highly recommend Jonathan as a skipper.

Nathalie and Jonathan are very pleasant people and make sure that the guests want for nothing. Jonathan is very careful and the safety of the guests comes first. Jonathan organised everything well. The plans for the next day were discussed with the whole crew and everyone was able to contribute their wishes and suggestions. This sailing trip to the Seychelles was very nice and we would repeat it in a heartbeat!

Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for your support during our voyage. Your calm demeanour, extensive experience and knowledge were appreciated not only by me but also the crew. I am looking forward to sailing with you again.

I appreciate your feedback both during the trip and the points you have raised. Now I have had some rest, I am in the process of working through a long list of improvements which will include your suggestions.

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.
