This enterprise is just an amazing one. It is owned by Eddie English and he is an excellent ambassador for sailing fraternity. His knowledge and experience have no bounds. His love for this sport is infectious.

A truly personalised service from Eddie & Jo English of SailCork. Not only did we have wonderful sailing, but also learnt so much about the history, culture, geography and of course the best places to eat out in Croatia. Highly recommended!
