Dear David,

Thank you for such a wonderful weekend sailing. We spent the first day in Yarmouth and the second anchored in Newtown. My guests and I had a fantastic time all thanks to your great hospitality and boating expertise (the glorious weather helped too!). Cetewayo is an eye-catching boat and multiple sailors asked about her as we passed by. I must say we felt like the real deal! It was a truly memorable experience for all of us, from a historical tour of the Isle of Wight to spotting a seal while we swam around the boat and even learning some sailor terminology. I will highly recommend your services and I can assure you that my guest and I will return for more sunny weekends.

Best regards,

I am writing to thank you for a really fantastic day charter, that we spent with you on Cetewayo last month.

The day delivered on every level, with a wonderful sail across to Cowes, delicious champagne lunch on-board and the adventure of us all taking the helm on the return journey. Cetewayo is a truly stunning classic yacht, and we felt very fortunate to spend such a special day on her with you and your attentive crew. Nothing was too much trouble, and we felt very well looked after indeed.

Your knowledge not only of your beautiful boat, but your skill in getting the very best from the sailing conditions, all added up to a truly memorable day and one that we look forward to repeating in the near future.

With warm wishes,

Dear David,
As part of the Polypipe Annual Regatta, in September 2014, we were extremely lucky to have the charter of a fantastic classic yacht called Cetewayo. This wonderful boat has been lovingly restored by its owner, and as it turned out is a formidable presence on the water, helped by her extremely capable crew. We as a scratch of six people who do not sail, were expertly tutored on what was required of us. The varying roles were all of equal importance, however without David at the helm reading the weather, and the fleet around us, we would not have been able to win our class. It was an excellent day helped of course by sunny weather and the enthousiasm of all the crew. We would not hesitate to use Cetewayo again, and I hope to cross the winning line in first place next year.
Kind regards,

Dear David,
Thank you for a truly superb couple of days sailing in the Solent last week. My guests and I were extremely well looked after by you and your experienced team. Please pass on my thanks to Ian, Jez & Rowena. We all had a thoroughly enjoyable time aboard the beautiful Cetewayo.
Both days proved an excellent opportunity to build on and make relationships with my clients and other guests. I would have no hesitation in recommending a day aboard Cetewayo as a unique corporate event that represents excellent value.
Best regards,

Dear David,
It is no exaggeration to say that my day on Cetewayo, with treasured friends, was the highlight of my summer. She is undoubtedly a beautiful boat, restored and maintained by you with stunning attention to detail and, clearly, great love. But the day could never have been so special without the gracious, informative and entertaining company of you and your crew. My guests all contacted me the next day to unanimously declare it the ‘Best Day Ever’.
Very best regards to you and your crew,
