Enjoyed another great sailing holiday on Seven Seas at Eastwood Whelpton in July 2020 - with everything else going on in the world, being on a boat on the Broads was probably the best place to be. I have been coming to the Broads since age 8 (now 52!) and now able to enjoy it all with my family - happy days! EW is a great yard, with very well maintained yachts that work and sail well year after year. Annie, Andy and team continue to do a grand job in running the yard and we look forward to coming up for many more years. Favourite boat is Windjammer but have sailed Windsong, High Seas, Seven Seas and Bootlegger in years past - all great gaff rigs.

Took the family for a week in August on a sailing holiday, and we had a great time, and the team at Eastwood were great. we took our dog, who turned out not to be too keen, bit they gave her a life jacket, and she survived. the boat was ok for a family of 4, and the holiday was a reasonable price, esp as you don't pay anything else, as mooring is generally free, and they include fuel, car parking, you can even cook meals on the boat, although most evenings we found a pub. the kids did great, even the youngest was able to sail a triangle course, and the oldest was fine on her own sailing the 30 foot yacht. we wanted a bit of training as we hadn't sailed for 30.years, they gave us 2 options, £75 for half a day refresher, or £400 for 2 full days plus RYA certs. we went for the 2 full days, and I think that was an error, not that the instructior didn't know his stuff or was bad, he was a good bloke, but we didn't get any qualifications, and that was the main reason we choose to pay more. Hopefully we will return.

A really great short break made really perfect by the wonderful team at the boat yard. Superb boat to sail and first Gaff rigg I have sailed for many years. Great to be reminded of how wonderful these boats are to sail.

The yacht was very clean, well equipped and a pleasure to sail. The staff are beyond helpful, even stowing a supermarket delivery expertly. If you need to contact them, they are knowledgeable and quick to respond. I also loved the welcome pack! Also love their dog friendliness with no hidden or extra costs for fuel, the dog or parking. The price published is all you pay but this is not true of all other boatyards. Shower and toilet facilities are immaculately clean.

We fulfilled a lifetime ambition to go sailing on the Norfolk Broads this summer (July 2021). We were able to achieve this by taking out Lutra for the week, made possible by the excellent team at Eastwood Whelpton. We cannot praise them highly enough for their friendly (and very professional) attitude and support, through booking, to sailing and as we disembarked...an amazing company, who want to encourage the return to sailing on the Broads. Lutra sailed like a dream, and had everything we needed on board for sailing and catering, and despite our concerns, we successfully lowered and raised the mast without great trouble. The boat and its setup was really designed to take the worries out of sailing someone else's boat and great attention was paid to ensure it was a relaxing holiday, not a source of stress. We are already in the process of booking next year's trip
