A full day on a classic sailing vessel promised to be a great experience and we were not disappointed. The crew are quite rightly proud of White Squall II, a wooden schooner with plenty of history. Chris the skipper and Ashley the first mate greeted us on board and made us feel very welcome; they looked after us throughout the trip making sure we had everything we needed. Before leaving the Marina everyone was properly briefed about the ship and all safety aspects. We enjoyed a relaxing sail to an island where in a small cove we swam and snorkelled in crystal clear waters teeming with brightly coloured fish. Lunch on a floating restaurant boat with fellow “sailors” was a real treat, another chance to swim followed by a relaxing sail back to port. What a day, it will be a lasting memory, meeting and spending time with other passengers from the States and Canada added to the day. Overall this trip was great value, if you are looking for a Disney type experience then it’s not for you, but if you want a trip on a traditional sailing schooner with an experienced crew go for it! If we get the chance we’ll certainly do it again.
