We sailed for a week around the gorgeous South Ionian Islands with our children and friends and had the holiday of a lifetime. From our first enquiry Lesley was so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. On the boat we were taken so much care of that all we had to do was relax and enjoy the wonderful food,swimming in warm turquoise water and taking in the amazing scenery. We could get involved with sailing or just relax onboard the yacht. Nikos found beautiful bays to anchor in where we could swim or kayak for as long as we wanted. Then we would set sail for a lovely port where we have dinner and spend the night.Maree Adair, family and friends, July 2011
We cant wait until our next trip and we would thoroughly recommend Lesley and Scorpios Sailing for a truely memorable holiday.
I first sailed on Blue Marlin some eight years ago and have been longing to come back ever since. Finally, this year, I made it and it was wonderful to be back in the care of Lesley and Nikos. Lesley is a superb hostess and cook and has the knack of making you feel extremely comfortable and cared for without being in the slightest bit intrusive. She is very intuitive and soon knows exactly what you like to eat and drink and what is likely to interest you during the day. She provides the most amazing service and meals from a tiny space and is always gracious, kind and enormously helpful, in our case arranging a stay in a hotel and entertaining some of our friends for a day’s sailing with us. Lesley is never phased by anything and Nikos is a wonderful skipper, calm and professional at all times and always happy to give a little sailing tuition if required. We both thoroughly enjoyed their company and the voyage and will certainly return – it is an exceptional holiday which stays in the memory for a long long time.Nicky and Edward, August 2015 - Bebela Yacht
As a novice on the ocean I was anxious. You put me and my friend at ease straight away. I loved having a go at the helm confident that Steve was there to guide me. The food was great and you made me and my friend Jayne, feel as if the yacht was ours but without the worries of where we were going to berth for the night or where we were going to buy fresh bread. You were the perfect host and skipper. I will certainly recommend a sailing holiday to the rest of my friends and am so glad that my Jayne persuaded me to take this holiday sailing around the Greek Ionian Islands.Jayne and Theresa, June 2010
Every day our experienced skipper, Nikos, delighted in finding the clearest, bluest water possible for us to stop for lunch. We had a fabulous time diving off the boat, snorkeling, rowing the dingy into remote caves, exploring the beaches, jumping off cliffs, lounging on the boat…Our hostess, Lesley, spoiled us with delicious meals and attentive service. We all looked forward to what dish Lesley had prepared for lunch each day. We loved docking the boat every evening at different unique ports and eating dinner on the island. This truly was a remarkable vacation- relaxing, beautiful, fun. All details were taken care of for us and Nikos and Lesley went out of their way with extreme kindness to ensure we had the vacation of a lifetime…although I’m sure we will be back!Cory & Krista Cline, June 2010
