My wife and I just finished a week on Annecy, day sailing out of Lagos with Rob helping me to be a better sailor. This was really a first rate experience. Firstly the hardware. Annecy is a superbly equipped and maintained yacht. She delivered a safe and comfortable sailing experience at the full range of conditions we experienced. Over all we had great sailing conditions, with the heaviest weather up to perhaps 20+kts. Annecy was very well behaved and generated confidence to the crew in those conditions. Secondly, Rob is an excellent instructor. Patient, thoughtful and full of sailing knowhow and he also can communicate that information in a clear, understandable manner. I was not working on a specific course of instruction, but wanted to have Rob help me be better in areas where I have little experience. Rob and I discussed this prior to our week of sailing and Rob was great with helping me with what I wanted and additionally seeing where I had other gaps in experience and knowledge and helping to fill those gaps. If you are looking for superb instruction on a beautiful, well maintained and configured yacht, you have found the place. I’m looking forward to having another session with Rob and his team this fall.
