Capt. Kevin, Whitney, & Mattie were great. Enjoyed every moment. My wife and I had never sailed on a 12 meter before so this really was an exciting, enjoyable experience. We recommend this to everyone. Great way to spend a couple of hours.

Had a wonderful sail on the Columbia with 20 knot wind. Captain Kevin and crew were terrific. And they are eager to tell you about 12 meter sail boats, racing and anything Newport. Got a great restaurant recommendation from the Captain: Fluke.

The Captain was great, very knowledgeable about the area, as was the crew. Not only was the sailing great - but the tour of Newport harbor and the area was great. We were on "Heritage"...best birthday present EVER!

Really enjoyed this sailing excursion - a unique and beautiful way to see the bay. Even though it was rainy, our family still had a great time and thorougly enjoyed the trip. Duncan, Matt and Amy are a fantastic crew! Worth every penny.
