  • Sailing on the Eda Frandsen was utterly outstanding. The experience was extremely good fun, very interesting, relaxing and probably THE best way to see the beauty of the West Coast of Scotland. There was no single high point but instead a series of high points; taking the helm, being complemented on good helming, learning how to work rope, seeing dolphins, being inside Fingals cave on Staffa, having a really good craic with Becky and James (the owners) and the rest of the crew and eating spectacularly good food, it really was one of the best trips I have ever been on. There is nothing on earth quite like taking the helm of this elegant boat when she is under full sail. Graham, July 2013
  • Becky and James are a fabulous couple who strike just the right balance of teaching, encouragement, explaining and organising. They give you space when you need it, and help at just the right time. They were incredibly easy to get on with and made everyone, regardless of status or experience, feel very comfortable and valued. Jane and Graham, June 2013
