TESTIMONIAL - WHAT DO THE SALAMANDER SAILING ADVENTURE GUESTS SAY ?
“Amazing day out to Cowes and weekend away!”
"Booked a weekend trip to Lymington including a day trip to Cowes with a bunch of friends and I must say it was one of the best experiences I have had. The hosts (Sue and Chris) were very accommodating and friendly - Chris even let me steer the yacht! The cooked breakfast was amazing quality and in sum a great break. Can not recommend enough! "
