TESTIMONIAL - WHAT DO THE SALAMANDER SAILING ADVENTURE GUESTS SAY ?
"A wonderful day out with great hosts!"
"I went out on a day-cruise on the Salamander to watch the J-class boats. We had a wonderful day. The Salamander is roomy and comfortable (even when the weather is not cooperating too much.) The boat is beautifully laid out and exceptionally well-maintained - and for a lubber like me it felt very stable and sturdy.
Chris and Sue are perfect hosts - gracious, funny, invariably cheerful and helpful without being intrusive. Ask them about their round-the-world sailing adventures though - fascinating stories.
I would highly recommend Chris and Sue and the Salamander for any adventure they put their minds to."
