The 10.30 to 1.30 buffet brunch sail for up to 8 people gives a hands on sailing experience with a sumptuous buffet lunch with wine priced from £35 per person. My jewel in the crown evening sail leaves at 6pm and is a taste of true yachting, eating and drinking out on the Lake! My 4 course dinner is cooked by me using the finest local produce cooked to your specification whilst the conversation (and wine)flows! I take up to 6 (Adults only) in the evening and the sail is priced from £55 per person including transport to and from the yacht within a 5 mile radius. You must of guessed by now that I am completely a one man band! I am receptionist, chauffeur, wine waiter, skipper, chef and washer upper! Check out my website and if you have any questions then please give me a call. « less

Our first experience of SailndDine with John and I am certain it won't be our last. We were booked as a couple and were joined by two other couples for the evening. John is a super host and quickly ensured that we all felt relaxed; by the time we boarded we already felt like we knew each other really well.... More

Had a great time sailing and dining. John is very experienced and also very knowledgable about the local area. It was a great sightseeing experience as well as dinner and a fantastic view. Really enjoyed it and would recommend to everyone who visits the area.

From the first interaction with John I knew I had picked the right experience to celebrate my Dad's special birthday. The booking and arranging was effortless. On the day John picked us up right on time and drove us down to Maddie Two. We had a wonderful time out on the lake. John is knowledgeable, entertaining and a fantastic chef.... More

This was our second visit on board the Sail n' dine experience. Our first encounter was the Sail n' brunch for myself and my husband which involved my husband taking the wheel and having a great sail under the wing of John a very confident and experienced sailor. The food was delightful and we left looking forward to another sail.... More
