A perfect balance of refreshment, invigoration and conviviality was provided by the entire experience of ‘stay and sail’. During our sail, the our host and hostess got everything right – the conversation, the catering and their skillful approach to ensuring each of their guests relished making a contribution as a crew-member. As we said farewell, we both had that tired/relaxed... More

I booked a surprise Sail & Stay package for my husband and I to enjoy our wedding anniversary celebrations - me without sea legs but wanting to reawaken husband's old passion for sailing. The booking process was efficient and friendly with Sue and despite my initial reticence, the day itself quite simply surpassed all my expectations. Lee and Hannah were... More

We had a wonderful day out on the water with Lee and his crew. Viking Blue was a beautiful boat and we all thoroughly enjoyed the chance to helm. Lee was a great host who kept us all entertained with his anecdotes and Suffolk Maritime history. A very well run and enjoyable day out for a group of work colleagues... More

Great weekend sailing trip to Belgium with Lee on Viking Blue. The food was delicious, the accommodation on board kept to a high standard and the sailing experience is ideal for miles building and generally learning more about sailing. Lee is a great instructor and I learnt loads in few days so thanks Lee!

We took an afternoon cruise with Lee on Father's day and it was absolutely fantastic. The boat was a magnificent 49' sailboat and the skipper (Lee) was not only a great Captain, but one heck of a teacher, too! Here's the result of the experience: I intend to enroll in the Viking Mariner's sea school and get my certification from... More

From the very first contact with Lee (RYA and director) the whole experience has been excellent. A very Proffessional approach. Lee is an excellent communicator from the outset and on the sail itself. I originally booked for 22nd May but Lee contacted me that morning as the weather was very poor and he didn't want us to have a less... More

My wife and I spent a glorious day with Viking Mariner afloat from Ipswich marina. Our day was part of our Ruby Wedding celebrations presented to us by friends. The owner and his wife welcomed us, professionally crewed and fed us. We could do as little or as much as we wanted with regards to sailing the yacht which itself... More
