"The sail was great and the wine and food delicious. The boat was beautiful. There was not enough room for everyone to sit down, so don't know if that is a requirement or not. Also, it was quite windy (good for sailing), but that also made it a chilly experience. Nothing to be done about the weather. I could not comment on the booking experience, as this was received as a gift. We had a great time and it was easy to book our time after we received the gift. Janet Whiton ps--The harbor directions were misleading as to what subway exit. Had to walk a long way to get to the harbor. Also, it was not clear just exactly where the boat would be."
"This was the final event of a weekend of 50th birthday events...and was by far the best and most memorable. The sail, the crew and the crowd were all fantastic. We're coming back for more."
"Too much emphasis on drinking verses sailing and the experience. At the end of the sail, the crew was handing out beer and wine. Not what we were looking for......more like how much can we drink attitude. "
