Ian is an awesome skipper. Not only is he a world class skipper (both racing and cruising) but he is also a great host. His catamaran sails well and is very spacious. The BBQs are legendary. Great holiday

Spent yesterday with Capt. Ian and Catherine and couldn't have had a better time. They were both professional and fun to be around. Great snorkeling, amazing lunch, drinks stayed full, and a relaxing sail to end the day. Highly recommended!!

Absolutely - hands down -the best day of the vacation!!! To say that Ian and his crew are the best would be an understatement. We did a whole day with family and friends and sailed to Anguilla. Started the day with drinks and great music...More

I would suggest you do. Captain Ian and his crew are very tech savvy and all can be done via Internet. You will not regret it!
