Description of Ken's sailboat

Beneteau First 40.7

The Boat; a First 40.7 – perhaps the most successful cruiser/racer ever designed - which is fully set up, equipped and inspected for RORC offshore racing, and has had the big two mods needed for these boats - it has a new carbon rudder to the original Farr design and has had the keel matrix re-bonded and strengthened. She is a strong and fast boat fully kitted out with a full set of Doyle Stratis race sails with four spinnakers... Down below, she has sea berths for 10 and is unusually comfortable and dry for an offshore race yacht! The Ethos; the atmosphere on the boat is supportive, fairly laid back but absolutely on it when we race. It's a rule on our boat that we don't shout, we encourage but we also recognise that we all want to learn as much as we can. It's a good fun boat, for all that! Available for day sails in the Solent and multi day sails within Covid guidelines.

What's a great experience! Ken has been wonderful, so patient with us. Both my husband and myself had a bit sailing experience so was eager to be involved, but of course get things wrong sometimes, Ken is always polite and patient explaining everything, and even accommodate us to rush to a fish shop to get some lobster before they closing. Ken is a very competent, patient and flexible skipper, we really enjoyed our day with Ken😊

Thoroughly recommend. Great for all levels but especially people looking to get into/wanting to learn about sailing. Ken was calm, assured and very knowledgeable. He made us all feel at ease while giving us the opportunity to learn the basics of sailing. We were having a chilled afternoon but clearly his boat is capable racing machine so would be suitable for that type of hire.

We had a fantastic day out with Ken. He was an extremely competent and knowledgeable captain and his relaxed nature made us feel completely at ease. Including us in the sailing during the day has sparked an interest in sailing we hope to pursue! Would highly recommend.

We hired the boat for the day with Ken and had a fantastic time. There was 8 of us plus Ken and we all fitted comfortably onto the boat. Ken was great, really friendly and allowed us to help and get involved. Would highly recommend

Ken is a very professional sailor and extremely helpful for our needs. The boat is nice and beautiful, we had a great experience with Ken. The person who rated 3.5 star damaged toilet, so annoying for that.

Ken made this a superb holiday. His extensive knowledge, expertise, resourcefulness and easy-going nature is a rare combination of qualities well-suited to a charter captain.
