Captain Javier was the perfect Captain in every way. Communication beforehand was prompt, easy, and uncomplicated. We spent an absolutely marvellous Sunday afternoon out on the bay watching fleet week, with Javier finding the perfect spots and going above and beyond to make our hours on the water memorable. He provided us with wonderful insights into the area and other vessels while expertly guiding us around, and went to great lengths to maximise our time. Would highly recommend Javier to anyone searching for a great captain, and am highly grateful for this experience.
We had a wonderful time sailing with Javier. The boat was perfect for our party of 6, handled so nicely, and we had a perfect ride. Javier not only was very helpful with instructions, but gave us a great tour and told us about all the ships we saw docked along the estuary. We are very much looking forward to sailing with him again, soon.
We had a great day with Javier's boat. It's a really fun and fast boat.
Javier was very friendly and helpful. He took the time to explain how to reef the main sail in case we needed to.
I can't wait to rent this boat again during the summer.
Javier and his family were great! They were laid back fun and caring people who knew their way around a boat. Very respectful sailors! They put all the lines back in place and cleaned the inside of the boat after. I was happy to have them and hope to see them again one day!
Great fast sailing boat! We were lucky to have a strong breeze to take advantage of this great day sailor. A single reefed main and #3 headsail was the perfect combo for easy fast reaching across the bay. The boat is set up well for shorthanded sailing and Javier was really great to work with. Highly recommended if you enjoy sailing and want a to experience a quick racing boat.
