Fabulous

The wind wasn't in our favor, but that didn't stop us from enjoying it.

Great fun, highly recommend. Great staff.

Wind was a bit light and intermittent, but staff were amazing and so accommodating.

A fun afternoon

My wife and I had a great time zooming around the track with help from Ian and Alice. I've been sailing high-performance small boats forever but my wife's experience is only as ride-along crew and, despite the difference in experience, both of us really enjoyed ourselves in the light wind (6-7 knots).

Fun and well run

The weather turned very windy on our scheduled day so Ian tried to accommodate by adjusting carts and sails but ultimately rebooked us for another day. He and the rest of the staff did a great job working with our large group of kids and made it a great experience.

Family fun 3/01/20

It was fantastic. Friendly, helpful and great instruction while you are sailing around the course so you get the most out of it. They made slight adjustments to the blowkarts for a couple of our group so everybody got the best experience possible. Our family thoroughly enjoyed it from the ages from 62 to 15. My wife had a smile on her face the whole time and we couldn’t stop talking about it for the rest of the day. We will be doing it again. I should have listened more intently on the instruction video about holding the sail tension rope and wouldn’t have got sore hands. That was my fault. Absolutely brilliant. Thanks Ian and your team. Cheers Bryn
