What was the best bit?

Sailing the return leg to Brixham and the food was excellent. The photo of Emma and Katie with Provident alongside
epitomises the trip! Very friendly crew and we were blessed with ideal weather (apart from a shower in Dartmouth)" Ray H. 2018 21st April 1 night cruise out of Brixham.

Spent 10 days aboard Leader and had a wonderful experience sailing Oban to Falmouth in August 2017. Sunsets, sun raisers, dolphins, seals, exhausting watchers, rough seas and into mill ponds and sun drenched islands. WOW. Gina T Aug 2017

Having decided to risk the notorious Easter weekend weather, my wife, son and self returned yesterday from three nights aboard Leader; her first cruise of the season. We’re still buzzing with the sheer joy of the whole experience.

As it turned out, the weather decided to pleasure us with some nice sailing wind and plenty of sunshine: so no complaints there. The skipper, Stan, was as cool and professional as only years of experience can forge, the crew were all likewise faultless. The Devon scenery was spectacular and the pubs we visited during our jaunts ashore in the evening were all that they should be. The food aboard, meanwhile, included freshly baked chocolate cup cakes on Easter Sunday, served on deck and under sail with piping hot tea and fresh coffee. As for Leader herself, it was both an honour and privilege to sweat and tail her sheets and halyards, to take her helm and feel her breath, to berth aboard while riding at anchor and to sit at her copious dinning table surrounded by lovely company after long days filled with pleasant adventure.

If looking to find fault however, the aroma below decks, of wood and tar and history, might not be to everyone’s taste. As for myself, I miss it already. Carl G. April 2017

Just had a wonderful Easter trip aboard Leader sailing around Devon. A very big thanks to Sam and the rest of the crew - your enthusiasm and passion was fantastic and made the trip that much more enjoyable. A big credit to all at Trinity Sailing for preserving the fleet and allowing us the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful old girl!"  Andrew P. 5 star facebook review April 2017
