We celebrated a 30th birthday in style aboard Viking Blue. acompanied by Lee and Hannah who were great. We had a fantastic morning sailing down the Orwell to Harwich and back and everyone enjoyed getting involved with the sailing, under the direction of Lee the skipper. We were also well looked after by Hannah. We then enjoyed a lovely meal... 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

It was lovely to meet you both and have you on board. It was like sailing with friends and dare I say, you took to it like duck to water! Hope to see you again sometime. More

We also got engaged on the boat which was truly amazing!! :) and couldn't of wished... 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

I've chartered a yacht on the Orwell previously for an afternoon trip out so knew what to expect. And Viking didn't disappoint. Viking Blue is a beautiful, well-appointed, boat with a fantastic feel. Lee and the crew were great and, happily, the wind obliged too, giving us a great trip out to Harwich and back. Ok, so the rain showed... More

I arrived early, before everyone else and I saw Lee & Bev on the boat, 'Viking blue' from the quay; They invited me onto the boat and made me a nice cup of tea and a biscuit. Then when everyone arrived, we had a nice safety and comfort meeting, discussing everything on the boat, what to do if, where this... More
