At long last my Christmas present for 2019 happened, once I contacted Russ direct everything started to run smoothly and extremely professionally. Dates, time of arrival and activities discussed only changed if weather dictated. Overnight stays on the boat before and after the trip helped make it a more relaxed adventure, no rushing about, lazy breakfast on deck, wine and beer in the evenings and pleasant company. The wind in the morning was not very strong so we motored towards Osbourne Bay, being chased down by HMS Portland for the first half of the trip. Then of the starboard side we spotted something floating in the water, Russ decided to turn the boat and investigate, it turned out to be a seal eating a sizeable fish (would have made most fishermen jealous), it was oblivious to us and just lay on its back munching away. We then moored in Osbourne Bay for lunch looking up over the beach towards the house up on the hill, the sun was warming us up nicely but still the wind stayed low. Once we started our return trip the wind started to build up slowly, and we tacked back and forth across the Solent all afternoon, getting up to a respectable 7knts, this boat handles nicely and just cuts through the waves. Would we recommend this to everybody, no way we want to keep it to ourselves 😊. Thank you, Russ and Roger, for a fantastic day out, we will defiantly see you again next year. Richard and Jacqueline

Another great sail with Sailing Spook, this time an awesome 6 day sail to Devon and back taking in Portland, Dartmouth, Salcombe, Brixham and Swanage. Good combination of stops including on a mooring buoy at Salcombe (a water taxi collects you from the boat to drop you in town) and at anchor at Swanage. We spent the night in marinas at Portland and Brixham and on the town jetty at Dartmouth. Nice little sail up the Dartmouth river to Dittisham on that day as well. The sail down the Jurassic coast is spectacular and highly recommended. Great weather and great company, what more could you ask for?

Second time on the boat with Russ. For all you hard working people who have grafted so hard over the last year this is the perfect antidote to being stuck indoors looking at a screen or glued to your phone. We all need to take breaks and I can't recommend this experience to you enough. Let your brain unravel, your body relax and try something new. Work alongside experienced hands and novices alike. Take in great views, have relaxed conversation, drink wine, eat food and forget about your troubles. Thanks Russ and Mike for a fantastic couple of days. Will be back. Chris, Jenny and Sam Taylor.
