“An idyllic holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We spent two fantastic weeks in August 2013 cruising around the Ionian islands in Ray’s yacht Mala. Every evening we moored in a picturesque harbour – each one as idyllic as the previous one. We enjoyed breakfasts, lunches (many thanks Nicki!!), and wine onboard with Ray and dined ashore, often only a few steps from our mooring! Swimming off the yacht in warm clear azure water was a definite highlight. Ray was a careful, considerate skipper who kept a watching brief on the weather and amended the course when necessary to ensure our sailing comfort. As a result only two days were rescheduled because of adverse conditions. We felt we were in very safe hands throughout the trip. We highly recommend cruising with Ray and our only regret was that the two weeks passed by too quickly. We wish Ray, Nicki, the "canine kids" and Newcastle United all the very best for the future!!

“Unforgettable holiday!”

We spent a week on Mala in July 2013 with our 3 children (17,15,9). It was definitely the highlight of our holiday and Ray made us feel so welcome and comfortable. The lunch spread he put on every day was great. We loved the opportunity to sail when the wind was good, being able to stop at many beautiful swimming spots on our trip around the islands and dining at a different village each evening. Ray was a mine of information, very entertaining and fun company. He had indefinite patience and good humour with our son who talks a lot and asks many questions! We are so grateful to Ray for giving us a holiday we will never forget.

“If you have never been on a yacht before try it and love it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We were on holiday as a family in Kefalonia and booked a day with Ray and Stewart - a tester to see if we might want to try it for a few days in the future - what can I say - the highlight of our holiday - we all loved the experience for different reasons - lots to entertain a 11 and 14 year old and time to relax for mum and dad! Ray and Stewart looked after everything - stops for swims and snorkelling, jokes, stories, drinks and food - Holly is still pestering me to email for the recipe for the potato salad. Cannot recommend highly enough giving this a try.

Management Response
5 Aug 2014
In answer to this quite unfair review. I often have a crew member with me for both day trips and weekly charters. Evidence of which can be clearly seen on our website photographs. The crew member I use most regularly was on this occasion unable to assist me so I asked another previously used crew member with RYA qualifications if he would assist me with my duties. I thought that this would be beneficial to the family on their holiday.
We were unable to raise the sails on many occasions because of the lack of wind or the wind was in the wrong direction and as you pointed out in a previous email no other yachts had their sails out for the same reason.
Often because of light winds great distances in travel are not possible without use of the engine.
I have not previously had any complaints of this nature.
