Hi 2Beachers - many thanks for your kind review - and for participating in our video shoot. We were blessed with fantastic winds for your daysail and it was a delight for me to see E. develop his skills at the helm so quickly.

If there had been more wind, it would have been a 5 star event. Unfortunately, even though Captain Greg was a wonderful host, I was disappointed with the lack of wind.

Hi Sarah. Thanks for your review. We did have unusually light winds that day but I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves - a bit more serene than we would have preferred. If you come again I'll do my best to arrange for at least 12 knots!

Beautiful single-masted 26' sailboat. Greg allowed me to take the helm and gave me pointers on steering. What an experience! Lots of wind to make the trip exciting, and Greg has plenty of stories to tell. All-in-all one of my best Nova Scotia experiences!
