Smashing day - Maurice and Mandy
"Thank you so much for a fantastic time, we enjoyed the day and lovely to meet both you and Hilary, wishing u guys the best...."
"Once arriving in Gosport were given clear instructions of where to leave our car and find the boat on the marina. Afterwards, the 5 of us were welcomed by a glass of fizz as we came aboard, while Steve explained the rules and the history of the boat which was a nice a touch. We then had a 5-hour boat trip where we found a quiet bay to go swimming, an excellent addition that I highly recommend guests go for. Once returning to the harbour we said goodbye to Steve and headed into town for dinner after a few cocktails. Sleeping in the cabins was super comfy and a great new experience. An outstanding 24 hours, thank you Steve, we’ll definitely be back!"
Excellent Trip - Jamie
"I was celebrating a birthday with 4 girlfriends and stayed on the Kings Ransom for the weekend. Steve was great and contacted me before we arrived to see if we had any questions and to arrange a meeting point. He briefed us thoroughly about the boat while serving bubbles which was a welcome surprise. We choose to go out on the water for 2 hours which I recommend, it was a beautiful day and great fun. The yacht is really lovely and great size with several areas to hang out in. Beds were comfortable and having a shower on board was great. Steve recommended the Green Lighthouse Restaurant where we ate in the evening, you just need to get there early to get a table. The staff there were really friendly. The marina was really peaceful with good toilet and shower facilities. In all we had an excellent weekend, we just wanted to stay longer!."
A Wonderful Luxury Weekend on the Water - Dee

"Let me add my thanks and appreciation for your hospitality. Kings Ransom was the perfect vessel from which to follow the races, and I and our friends have thoroughly enjoyed the week. Take care and hopefully see you in the future."
"I also just wanted to say a huge thanks to both you and Mary for the day. Everyone was saying how much fun it was and we could have not had much better weather. Thanks for taking our quirky needs into consideration (swimming stops etc !) and getting us home safely."
- A very belated Thank You note for a really great day
"We just got home from our 4 days on King's Ransom. We had a really good time and the whole family thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Steve really went the extra mile. He perfectly identified our individual strengths and weaknesses and organised the course around these. I cannot even begin to describe how well he looked after my daughter. Under Steve’s supervision, she achieved things that I would never have imagined a 9 year old could do. She came home so enthusiastic about boating, and excited about spending further time afloat in the future. In a nutshell it was excellent and I would give it a 10 out of 10."
- You perfectly identified our individual strengths and weaknesses and organised the course suit, thank you!
"Just wanted to say thank you very much again for a fantastic weekend. We had an absolutely brilliant time and are very much looking forward to meeting up again on the 11th May."

Well we run RYA courses, last week we had the pleasure of taking a father and son who are brushing up on their general boat handling skills as they have chartered a 50 foot motor boat in Greece next month.
