I had the absolute pleasure of holidaying on The Blue Marlin this summer following the recommendation of my cousin Lynne & very good friend Clare & their teenage children. This was the 3rd year running for Clare & her family & 2nd year for my cousin & daughter. I had never considered a holiday on a yacht before but having heard such wonderful stories from previous years, I just couldn’t say no……..and my goodness, I am so pleased that I joined them all this year. It truly was a holiday to remember & much much more enjoyable that I envisaged. This was all down to our fabulous Skipper Nikos & superb hostess Lesley. Our trip around the northern islands was just perfect in every way. Both Nikos & Lesley are genuine, welcoming & friendly people who immediately make you feel relaxed & at home. Literally nothing is too much trouble for them. Nikos is so knowledgeable & keen to share the history of the islands & Lesley is just “the dream hostess”, her cooking & attention to detail (ie keeping the wine flowing, of which there was a plenty!!!!”) First class. I would thoroughly recommend this holiday (& have done so to many of my friends already!)……& will definitely be sailing with Nikos & Lesley again in 2015……counting the days.
