28 Years of Sail N Dine. I offer 2 trips most days. 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.

The experience of sailing on Lake Windermere with an excellent host and good company was very enjoyable once again. We were wined and dined by John to a very high standard of which many restaurants would be justifiably envious.

Everyone loved this journey from the oldest to the youngest. John was a great host. Very knowledgable about the surrounding area and a very nice guy. Pleasure to spend time with. Food was lovely. Local produce and homemade food. Relaxing and fun. Thanks!

It would be hard to find a better way to relax and enjoy the Lakes than spending 3 hours sailing and dining with John on Maddie two. The yacht is exceptionally well maintained and John extends that care to his guests on the day. There's a total of 6 guests and we were all given the opportunity to take the... More

First time for us on the Maddie 2 and I'm sure we will go again if we can... We were collected from our holiday cottage, wined and dined on deck with a wonderful meal and quite a lot of wine (!) and then dropped back to our cottage afterwards, so no need for a cab... what more could you ask...

A really enjoyable trip. John was very welcoming from the instant we met him at the pontoon. The sailing experience was great fun and you could get involved and have a go if you wanted to. Great on board commentary from John pointing out local landmarks and answering any questions we had- it felt more like bring on a trip... More

Although it poured with rain our evening on Maddie Too with John and two other couples was very good. Great food, great company and lots of wine! We sailed around Windemere for an hour or so before anchoring off Belle Islamd whilst John cooked our 4 course meal. Just to endorse Tony's post of 6 May - thoroughly recommend Sail... More
