I hadn’t been updating this page as I have become aware that some companies write their own positive comments. I have been told we should have this page so here are some genuine ones from people who have sailed on Wild Spirit. If you have sailed on Wild Spirit since then and wish to leave your own feedback just send me an e-mail. Dont use the form below as it attracts lots of spam so I dont look at it.
We have a lot of repeat customers–for 2013 7 of the 9 race team members had sailed with us before and another was a personal recommendation. All of the crew on the Scillies trip had cruised with us before
I am writing to thank you again for yet another exciting sailing weekend. At the moment working on general navigation theory and seamanship. Hope to do a day skipper soon.

Thanks again to you and Judith for an awesome week, the trip was even better than I had imagined.
As for the racing, I’d be up for Poole and the Cherbourg races but I already have plans on the weekend of the Nab Tower race. So if you still have availability count me in.

Many thanks for a wonderful weekend sailing. Thanks for looking after us (as a crew) and for doing more than your fare share of the work in the galley! The trip was both relaxing and exciting, and I particularly enjoyed the crossing back, once I found my sea legs so to speak! Paul Sept 2012
Thanks once again for a fantastic few days of sailing; a nice bunch as ever and a good time had by all. Roland Sept 2012
….you guys really boosted my confidence, which in turn helped me in this situation.
Love to all, keep in touch xx

Just to say thank you for a wonderful 4 days’ sailing in great company and good weather – not to mention exellent comestibles and an impressive wine list!! The opportunity to skipper a cross-channel passage was just what was needed both for my experience and confidence – it never seems quite so daunting with an expert on board to respond if all goes pear-shaped!!
Many thanks to Paul for having the patience of a saint – and to my lively shipmates.

I am writing on behalf of the four scouts and myself to thank you for last week’s time on board your yacht and for the completion of the competent crew course.
The experiences gained by the scouts enables them to put into place much of what they learn during the year and allow them to complete more advanced seamanship training that is not easily available to them.
The benefits of joining you on board “Wild Spirit” in the Solent allowed them to experience a larger vessel and to see more of the navigational marks in a busier nautical environment than they see at home on the Bristol Channel.
Once again thank you for your time, patience and instruction.

Truly ‘hassle-free’ yet very competent and thorough Day Skipper course. Thanks to skipper Phil for your outstanding teaching and above all your infinite patience. A truly memorable 5 days. Thanks a million – Paul Christophers

I am very sorry that I missed you yesterday to say good buy. Just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Many thanks for your support and for a great and safe trip.
All the best,
I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and it confirmed that I would love to come sailing again, if that’s OK? It’s clear that you have a huge breadth of knowledge and experience in sailing and are always willing to help people learn.
Just a short note to say thanks for a very challenging course. Once again I enjoyed my time spent on Wild Spirit. Pauline 16/4/12
Just a quick line to thank you once again for a great weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a good mix of weather and crew and all got along very well with one another. The food was exceptional as ever; I would be very grateful for Judith’s Thai Squash soup recipe! I’m sure that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Thank you for making my Sydney Hobart experience so memorable.
I love the contrast between Rowan’s – “Get that F****** sheet in now!!!!” and your “OK, let’s have a little more tension please on the sheet…thankyou..”
Both of which contributed to a wonderful experience!
I hope we can sail again, sometime!
Huge thanks to Paul for all his hard work, excellent skippering and fab provisioning – Marji
Thanks for hosting a great weekend. It built my knowledge and confidence – Richard
I had a wonderful time with all that good company and food – Sue
Thanks for another great weekends sailing – Dai and Jane
Great trip, much enjoyed. ..I saw many new places, a delightful itinerary. It just goes to show a coastal cruise can be more interesting that a cross channel trip. Alderney will be there next year – Richard
Thank you for the wonderful experience at the weekend and everyone's great company – Fiona
Just to say thanks Paul for a super few days sailing around the Channel and for the patient instruction and superior catering!! – John
I had a great time even though there wasn't much wind – Graham
