Just booked what is probably our 5th or 6th day sail with Captain Ian Martin on the Spellbound for this coming Friday. Cannot wait as a day sail on the Spellbound has become the highlight of our St Maarten adventures!

Ian is an awesome skipper. Not only is he a world class skipper (both racing and cruising) but he is also a great host. His catamaran sails well and is very spacious. The BBQs are legendary. Great holiday

I would suggest you do. Captain Ian and his crew are very tech savvy and all can be done via Internet. You will not regret it!
