A wild ride in glorious sunshine on the open Baltic Sea with wind force 5, with also very quiet passages on the river - all in all a great experience with a very friendly and cheerful crew including the captain.

We had fun, the weather was great and the team - all nice, friendly people, the scent of the sea and the view of the constantly changing horizon

A must for every sailor or non-sailor! Since we sail in our free time, this sailing trip was a dream come true for us.

Super cool experience. The offered ride in the dinghy was really great. We will definitely do it again.

A mega experience, best weather, very friendly crew...
