Lee & Sue were fantastic hosts very informative, knowledgeable & friendly. It felt like we had known them for years. Nothing was too much trouble for them & they were... More

We went onboard the Viking Blue with Lee, Sue and Hannah. We weren't sure what to expect, having only limited sailing experience. We sailed from Ipswich to Felixstowe on the Orwell River, and we were able to really participate in the steering and docking of the vessel, which was very fun! Once the motor was turned off, and we were... More

The weather threw everything at us and yet we still had a great time. Sue and Lee are a calm, professional team who handled a variably experienced group of seven blokes with tact and good humour. The Sailing Day was most memorable and all clients were very positive in their feedback. Viking Blue is a beautiful boat and it is... More
