Terry has been messing around on boats since he was a child. Growing up on the east coast of Ireland, he started sailing dinghies and soon graduated onto larger boats.

“Mere words are insufficient to describe the incredible trip and wonderful honeymoon with our friends and the two of you. Your wit, charm, hospitality and fabulous food will stay with us for many years. Thank you for making our sailing trip in paradise so special. Debbie and Patrick Kruczek,
