Provident happy crew

“An amazing experience!  To also sail and live on a piece of history is fantastic.  The crew, skipper and fellow passengers made the trip truly memorable." – Roger

“I was hugely impressed with the skipper and crew.  They were professional and charming.  The atmosphere on board was great, and I had a brilliant time.  Thank you.” – Phil 

“Quite the best sailing trip I’ve had – crew exceptionally capable, helpful and professional, and the food was excellent.” – Mike 

“The skipper and crew were the friendliest and most helpful and informative I have ever found compared to other ships.  Also standards of safety were much higher than I have experienced.” – Mr Beale 

What did you most enjoy? 

Rolling out of Brixham into the swell and seeing the decks get wet as the sea came slopping over bow. Beautiful early mornings. Fresh bread. Getting 6 sails up. Singing shanties with the crew. Helming off Start Point in clear blue skies. Taking visual sightings and checking the charts and our position.

Loved the sign up admin being simple, support from your office as it was my first trip and was asking all sorts of random questions and I got what it said on the tin. 
The crew were awesome, the boat beautiful and my fellow crewmates gid company. Am currently taking online day skippers course through you and look forward to booking my next voyage(s) very soon!" - Martyn L
