Review of: Let's Go Sail!
We took a charter with Captain Bill back in August. He was very friendly and professional, and seemed very knowledgeable on the water. The boat was very nice, and fit our family well. We had an enjoyable first hour on the York River, sailing up the river and taking in the sights. A squall popped up while we were on the water. It started small, but got a little heavier while we were out there. Unfortunately, we had to take in the sail and motor back to the harbor, completely drenched at the end. (Captain Bill had a cabin, towels and ponchos for us.) Still an enjoyable trip, and memorable for more reasons than we expected. Very fun and we would recommend.

What an amazing day on the water with Captain Bill. There were 4 of us and we all helped setting sails and steering. Captain Bill is a great guy and would highly recommend setting sail with him. You will not be disappointed.

This was a fantastic sail on the York River. Captain Bill was friendly and professional. He shared a great history lesson about revolutionary war. It was very informative and engaging. We got to learn about sailing and really participate in the sailing experience. The sailboat was in great condition. It is a great day outing. Food at the restaurant afterwards was a delight. Great way to relax.
