Great charter thanks!


Hi Avril,

Just a quick note to thank you and everyone at Flamingo for an outstanding weekends sailing and also for accommodating our delayed arrival on Thursday. Bluebird looked after us really well and gave us some truly memorable times “the best yet”. Incredible scenery, fair winds, whales, dolphins and some great ports to visit.

Many thanks,

Excellent couple of days ‘mid-week’ sailing around the Clyde.


Hi Avril
Just a quick note of appreciation after our recent trip with ‘Ocean Star’ We had an excellent couple of days ‘mid-week’ sailing around the Clyde on her at the end of last month.
It is the first time I have chartered from you and found it to be an easy & pleasant experience from booking with you till handing the boat back over.

Coming straight off another charter that afternoon, the boat was well prepared , obviously well maintained, clean & tidy, with the water tanks filled and fuelled for us, ‘ready to go’ soon after we arrived. Muir showed us everything we needed to know before we set off. (Including a comprehensive course on the Nav Centre.)
Although having chartered before several times in various places, I had never sailed a Bavaria 30 before and found the boat to be easy to handle, even in the stronger breezes & reefed in, she sailed well. The accommodation was more than spacious & comfortable enough for two and the galley well enough equipped to deal with some of our ‘adventurous cooking’ aboard.

All in all ‘Ocean Star’ was perfect for us. Thank you and your staff for their part in making our precious few days away memorable. We definitely will be chartering from you again and look forward to our next trip on the Clyde.
