Celebrate by Sail offer various experience options for adults and families, so a sail across the Broadwater was perfect for our 8 & 10 year old daughters for their first sailing experience. Terry encouraged us all to have a go, and somehow didn't panic as my wife took the boat on a wild ride, scaring (and scarring) the kids. On... More

I went out for a sail with Terry yesterday to "learn the ropes" as I am planning to take on the ocean one day myself. I can't think of a better way to dip the toes than to jump onboard with Terry. I was taken through boat safety, winch operation, helming, heeling, furling, trimming and all the other things that... More

We enjoyed a beautiful sail stopping for a picnic on the beach. Terry was so helpful and agreeable with everything we wanted to do. Great tunes, magically sunny day and all beneath billowing sails!

Terry was very clear in his explanations, and patient with his students. We learnt easily from Terry and he gave us the confidence to feel we can safely handle his yacht. He made the experience very enjoyable and got us excited about our impending adventure under sail.

What a day! Better than I could have imagined! Terry was extremely helpful in discussing with us our expectations prior to our booking. On arrival Terry met us as if we had always known him. His instruction was always aimed at our level of understanding and then guided us skillfully into the unknown. After 4 hours on board we were... More

There were four of us who were all very keen to learn and maybe my only thing i would change would be to just have two of us so we could... More
