  • An absolutely fantastic time! The 2-person crew was an exceptional asset to the trip. Sailed the beautiful mediterranean sea and got to see Greek Islands I'll likely never get a chance to experience again. The sailboat was clean, safe and comfortable. Would do it again in a heartbeat!! Thanks again to the crew Johnus and Sherman!!!
