we chartered a 40 ft boat to sail around West Cork for a week. We have a fair bit of saling experience in dinghies , and a little in cruisers, so we hired a skipper, Eoin for the week . The boat was well used but comfortable. The weather was mixed, the last day rained and blew out, but overall we had great sailing conditions and had a brilliant holiday. The skipper added a fair bit to the price but Eoin was terrific, highly competent and very easy to get on with, and got everyone involved. It reduced the stress levels a lot, he knew the area and the anchorages well and planned a great itinerary. Barry in the office was really helpful and gave one of the family a lift back from west cork. I would highly recommend it, and would do it again. ( bring your own foul weather gear if you can)

Exceptional couple of days with Barry on a 2 day introduction to sailing, course, this May 2021. A really engaging experience - good mix of fun, action and theory. Clearly the team at Sovereign had put a lot of thought and imagination into re-designing courses in our new covid impacted world. Left with a real taste for more sailing. Can't recommend highly enough. Naturally, we experienced every type of weather imaginable. Eoin O'Shea

Terrific experience covering off the Competent Crew course (wb 24th Aug 2020). We had a mixed bag from a weather perspective which is probably very normal for Ireland, apart from storms in August. Despite the weather we were expertly guided by our instructor Michael, to accomplish the course criteria in a safe manner and still managed to cram a lot in. The most memorable part for me was the night sail. This was part of the Day Skipper criteria which the other three students were completing. The boat (Beneteau Oceanis 411) was well equipped, food was plentiful and the instructor, Michael Hinds, were all first class. I would have no issues recommending Sovereign Sailing to anyone looking to do a day sailing trip or a course. There was a very healthy mix of fun and enjoyment without losing sight of the fact this was a course. Certain criteria had to be met and Micheal did a fantastic job of keeping things on track with the correct levels of focus

Completed the day skipper course with Sovereign Sailing. What an experience! Many thanks to our instructor Tessa who was awesome. A class operation from start to finish, what more can be said...

I would highly recommend this boat and skipper. Be it for a day leisured sailing or a full week long course like we did. We spent 5 days on board and loved every minute of it. We visited towns like Courtmacsherry, Glandore and Castletownend on our trip alone the West Coast. Lots of great meals on board and some swimming. James is a very good instructor and cook too! We has so much fun and gained our competent crew certification. 10/10 would recommend to anybody thinking of dipping their toes into sailing.
