We enjoyed very much our time onboard SY Meari and that is lot to be put to the credit of her crew: Lynley and Graeme. Lynley received us with a very fine cuisine I would have been happy to eat in a Michelin starred restaurant, and Graeme skippered the boat with a lot of professionalism while being accessible to sailing amateurs like us. Thank you again for these unforgettable moments.

Hi Lynley and Graeme, Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed having you aboard for the regatta last weekend. It has been a pleasure and we have both learnt a lot from you with your vast experience. Good luck and lucky is the next boat who has you two aboard.

Graeme and Lynley took very good care of both the yacht Destiny and the crew during a voyage from Gibraltar to Las Palmas and thence onto St. Lucia. A journey of some 3500 miles over a one month period was spent under the expert guidance of Graeme and his sailing skills and Lynley spoiling us with gourmet meals. These two people are truly a team, both at work and with each other.

Graeme and Lynley are intelligent, capable and fun to be around. Graeme is the best sail trimmer I have ever sailed with-always improving my trim by 10%!

Dear Lynley and Graeme,
As a repetitive guest onboard TONGA ... I have appreciated again your company and perfect service. The captainship was as usual perfect and the stewardship enchanting. Drinks, food and scenery were all breath taking. Thank you for a wonderful week in Montenegro and Croatia.

Lynley reached a high pass mark and gained a full understanding of all topics covered. We found Lynley to be intelligent and enthusiastic with a mature and responsible attitude. We feel that she would be a great asset on any vessel she was employed on.
