“Small sailboats growing up - Lasers and sunfish. Several Chesapeake overnighters. ASA certification in Florida. Crewed in Whitsunday Islands, Australia”
Aboard since 2013
From Arlington, VA
Great experience with Gilbert and the Macgregor 26. Gilbert was very friendly and helpful, and he even supplied the boat with a cooler full of ice, which was nice touch. He was immediately responsive to questions before and during the charter. The Macgregor was well-supplied and performed well. It's a light boat with a centerboard and water ballast system in lieu of keel, so in decent wind (15-18 kts) you will get pushed off coarse fairly easily if you don't reef the sails. All in all, a fun day and positive experience, and I would consider chartering with this vessel again.
