Captain Joy is an outstanding captain and we really enjoyed sailing with her on her beautiful sailboat on the Long Island Sound! We would definitely hang with Captain Joy again!!
Our first sailing experience was memorable and joyful thanks to Captain Joy! We enjoyed learning about the skills needed to interpret wind and water conditions and seeing the nesting snowy egrets:)
Great time and great crew... look forward to seeing them again!
We had a great time sailing with Joy!
