TESTIMONIAL - WHAT DO THE SALAMANDER SAILING ADVENTURE GUESTS SAY ?
“Quality Family Time”
"I booked the trip over night Round the Isle experience for 3 generations of my family, including my 8 month old twin boys.
The dates happen to be the same weekend as the Round the Island race which made it even more memorable as we weaved our way through 1,500 sail boats.
We anchored at Priory Bay and even enjoyed a swim in the sea before a lovely dinner. Sunday winds allowed us to do some sailing across the Solent.
Amazing hosts and great weekend, would definitely recommend.
