We have managed to spend 7 days on board 2 adults and a 12 years old girl. And visiting the surrounding spots. 2 nights in Lagos marina. And anchoring in Alvor. The ferragudo buoy was a nice spot and convenient as departure and arrival point. The dinghy was a kayak, the portable shower very much appreciated.the toilet : a bucket. You have to bring your water because no water tank. No cooking equipment.This is more a day boat rather than a cruiser.with minimum equipment but it is sailing with an old main sail and furling Genoa only. The mercury 4 strokes 9.9 hp is ok. A good experience overall ! I mention all above details because I found the add was lacking of such details. Thanks to Ruben , very helpful and reactive !
Beautiful day spent out on the water. We got a little unlucky with the wind so we weren't able to drop anchor and do much sunbathing/swimming, but we enjoyed ourselves anyway. Communication was fairly prompt. Pick up/drop off from our accommodation was a huge plus!
We had an amazing time with Ruben and Dick! They were very knowledgeable about sailing as well as the area and coming up with recommendations for what to do based on the waves and the wind. We definitely made the most out of our time on the boat and it was an experience we will never forget :)
Chartered the sailboat without skipper, smooth booking experience including a special request from us. Clear communication on handover. Recommended. Thank you Ruben & Dick.
the experience has been incredible from the first moment. Rubén has been a great boat skipper and also an excellent person, without a doubt we will repeat this experience since it was 10/10
Ruben was a great skipper who knows exactly how to help plan out a great day on the water.
Excellent day on the water the Ruben who took bloody good care of us. Great knowledge of the area and a very nice guy.
Ruben was very friendly and welcoming! We had a really amazing day! He took very nice pics and videos of us :) Thank you for the experience Ruben!
Ruben is really nice and has a special skills for taking pictures
The boat is perfect to explore the surroundings for one day trips and despite its age it is in great shape. Thr only inconvenient is that it doas not have a toilet aboad, but for hot summer days or few hours trips it is not really an issue. Ruben is a great skipper, made us feel relaxt and at home, and helped us remember all we have learned in our skipper classes. After three days with him we were confident enough to take the boat out by ourselfs, but unfortunately we did not found the time to do that. However, we promise to come back as soon as possible. Thank you Ruben for three great days 😀
We chartered the boat including Ruben as skipper, and really had a great experience, even though there was unfortunately little wind. He is great company, showed us beaches only reachable by boat and swimming there or using the paddle board on board. We still had a good time, and hope to be back for another time when there is more wind to tell more about the sailing qualities of the boat. Highly recommended experience, we really enjoyed the day.
Ruben was nice but he proposed to offer us the ride from the house to the harbor (like 50minutes) and, at the end of the day, he asked to pay it... The experience was not so bad because of the weather and atmosphere. A little disappointed about the journey but in general it wasn't so bad.
Nice day trip with sailing boat, place gives opporrunity to practice your skills. We went with family and everything Was ok.
