As a group of 4 people we were with Ron on a 5 nights trip. We've had the best time! Ron is a very experienced skipper. So in any situation he is cool, calm and collected. The boat is perfect for 4 people. Ron was also our cook on this trip and prepared very delicious meals. Even baked cake! And we didn't have to do anything and could thereby enjoy every minute. The Freewind is a sailboat and so naturally space is limited. This applies e.g. to the restroom, changing clothes and climbing on deck within confined spaces. Thank you Ron for a wonderful time around the Mananucas and Yasavas!
Our 2-day trip with Ron was spectacular. We are a sailing family from San Francisco (2 adults, a teenager and elementary schooler), that did a 2-day stopover in Fiji on the way to New Zealand. We had two days of unabated paradise on Freewind with Ron. He took us to the most incredible deserted beaches we’ve ever seen, on Mana Island, and spent hours there. He is among the best sailors I’ve ever seen as he single-handed his 46 foot sloop, you are in the safest seaman’s hands with him. He feeds you 3 homemade scrumptious meals a day. He is ever so considerate, crafting the itinerary around your preferences, and ensuring your kids have chocolate milk and smoothies to keep them cool and happy! We’ve sailed all over the world, both bareboat and skippered charters, and can say he is the very best - he is the most experienced sailor we’ve ever sailed with. He is also a man of real humility despite his incredible experience of multiple ocean passages and local knowledge - and his demeanor is one of which a family seems extremely comfortable staying with. If you are even considering taking a trip with Ron, don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it!
We had an amazing trip around the Mamanucas with Ron. Fiji has over 300+ islands and a sail boat is the best way! Ron to us to visit the outer reefs for amazing snorkeling, Castaway island where the movie was filmed and much more. Ron cooked all the meals which we ate on boat and my family enjoyed the 2 nights/ 3 day cruise.
We stayed on Ron’s boat for 1 night and 2 days! There were 7 of us and it was brilliant the whole time! His food was amazing and Ron was super friendly! We got to sea great snorkelling spots and we were able to go to resorts on islands who happily welcomed us! I highly recommend for any large groups who want to travel the Fijian islands effortlessly!
My husband and I spent 6 days with Ron and Joti and had a wonderful time. It was so great to have Joti aboard and to hear about her growing up in Fiji and all the things she showed and taught us. Ron is truly and expert sailor and we felt completely at ease everywhere we went. They had planned daily activities for us to experience each day. We can’t say enough how great our trip was and highly recommend sailing with Freewind - Ron and Joti.
Ron’s boat was perfect for our family with children to enjoy our time on the Fijian waters. Ron tailored the trip to ensure all our needs were ticked off, from sailing for the grandparents to a sand island for the children. Ron’s boat is set up perfectly for hosting, he’s got great communication right from initial inquiry to ensuring you’re safely in a taxi after your trip ends, his cooking / food is awesome, and most importantly he’s an excellent host and top bloke. Thanks Ron, see you next time we’re in town!
