I emailed Eric with a unique request asking if our group of 2 couples could do an evening sail with dinner on the boat and stay overnight. I fully expected that my idea would be too expensive to make a reality, but Eric responded quickly, and offered a plan to sail to the Thimble Islands, including allowing us to stay alone on his beautiful boat overnight! We moored in a secluded cove at dusk and he guided us through parts of the boat we’d need before riding off in the dinghy to stay with friends. We thoroughly enjoyed Eric’s company but it was very exciting to feel like the boat was ours for a night. It was like a little slice of heaven: eating dinner under the stars listening to music, watching the sun rise, and swimming in the cove in the morning. The whole experience felt serendipitous and we all left wishing for more. Couldn’t recommend sail-works more highly.…

We chartered the sailboat as part of a company team building event. Great way to get away from the office and bond with colleagues. Lots of laughs, food, and swimming in the Thimble Islands, as well as a beautiful sunset and attentive Captain and crew. Would definitely recommend to others.…

Great day sailing out of Branford CT. The boat was wonderful and Eric was a most knowledgeable skipper and gracious host. I would recommend this for a great day with friends, family or someone special in your life.

I don't own a boat, but I wanted to experience sailing in LI sound. This is a great way to have that experience without having to do any boat maintenance. I sailed on the 35' Nomade with a group of 4 adults and 2 children. 6 adults probably would have been too tight. We did the sunset cruise from 4:30pm to 8:30pm to avoid the midday sun. We left from Stonington and anchored off of Fisher's Island. You can swim off the boat. There is a table to eat on if you want to bring a cooler with food. It's a beautiful area. Words cannot do it justice. Eric the captain is a very friendly gentleman who was extremely accommodating. It's a lot of work sailing a ship by yourself with limited help. We were very appreciative. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't have a boat or a friend with a boat. This is the least expensive way in terms of time and money to get the experience.…
