What an amazing sailing adventure we all had. We’ve had a good mix of weather and seas. I learned so much and totally knackerd myself personally speaking. But lots of tales to tell and memories to treasure. Chris told me to say he’s a great skipper! Thanks all
I went sailing on Blue Clipper during the middle of April and absolutely loved the experience. The crew were so passionate about what they do and so inclusive and patient and keen to share their knowledge, it was fantastic.
The food was amazing and we were looked after incredibly well. I can’t wait to return on another voyage with Maybe Sailing and I would really like it if you could include me on the Friends of Maybe mailing list. I have lots of pictures I would like to share, including with the American guests who were on board with me.
I can only say that the cred onboard Blue Clipper were all outstanding and we could not have had any more care and attention. Jane was especially impressed, as she had some concerns about her ability to cope before the trip. The crew could not have been more supportive and caring and ensured that she was able to participate in all the activities. She was most grateful for the efforts the crew made to make her birthday memorable.
I have spent many years recruiting professionals and I would like to congratulate whoever is responsible for the recruitment of the crew. Apart from the essential seamanship skills there is clearly an objective to recruit those who will fit well into a team and relate well with the guests. I know how difficult it is to put together a coherent team and it was remarkable to observe how well this had been achieved.
The trip was absolutely wonderful. Grace and the rest of the crew were all very engaging and friendly, like wise my fellow travelers. I must not forget to mention the superb food and Blue Clipper’s very own shanty man, what a trip.
All I can say is it was a marvelous experience which I have been banging on about to anyone who will listen. If you did a formal survey everything would get 10 out of 10!!
Just wanted to pass on my thanks again for a wonderful trip last week. The group were great fun. The crew were utterly amazing – Shaun the chef was outstanding. Este and toby brilliant and Seb was exceptional. If you ever need help with deliveries I would be more than happy to volunteer, already missing the sea! Take care.
This trip was one of the best holidays I have ever had. Amazing ship, stunning scenery & wildlife, wonderful crew & passengers and incredible food (Alex deserves a Michelin star for what he does in his kitchen). The experience of sailing a tall ship had me smiling for the whole trip. For me it was a holiday of a lifetime and I know the other passengers felt the same. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Chris and all of the crew for an incredible trip.
Had an excellent holiday on Blue Clipper
I have had the most fantastic time aboard “Blue Clipper”! The crew were absolutely amazing and nothing was too much trouble for them. Although I do volunteer “work” I was still surprised to discover that some the crew are volunteers. The care by all of the crew of the guests was phenomenal. I am now 70 (we sailed on my birthday) and had never sailed before but I was not made to feel inadequate. Our skipper Grace was marvellous and had us in stiches most of the time! I have not laughed like I did for so many years – it was like turning the clock back!
My cabin was spacious, very comfortable and the food wonderful. Also, being able to make ourselves a hot drink when we wanted was good as it felt like we were part of the team. No formality led to a terrific atmosphere on board. We didn’t experience much wind so sailing under sail power was limited but when we did it was most exciting! Visits off the ship by transporting us on the RIB was also great fun and the care given to ensure safe movement of us all was very impressive!
After being in lockdown, I must say for me, it was very special to be in a cheery group of people both crew and guests, which helped one get things in perspective. Wish I could have stayed for longer! Captain Chris and his lovely crew were absolutely wonderful. The food was top notch, Chef Alex scored a hit with everyone for his outstanding meals.
Accommodation was very comfortable and clean.
I was extremely well looked after by all of the crew without exception.
Cannot fault any thing, and as I said Full credit to the crew, company and yourself ( Grace skipper )of course.
For someone who has never been sailing before, I was very apprehensive but still excited about the whole experience. It really surpassed my expectations. The team, the food, the spontaneity of sailing and learning the ropes was an amazing and one of a kind experience.
The crew were lively and really entertaining, great with children and because of having to work in a team, a close bond formed very quickly with everyone onboard. When asked by the captain at the end, what I thought of the experience, only one word came to mind, ‘phenomenal’ – it really was!

My family and I recently had an amazing opportunity to spend time onboard the Tall Ship Maybe. I was a little apprehensive about it at first as we have two young children aged three and one. However, a quick visit to Maybe soon reassured us that we were making the right decision as she is a very spacious, sturdy boat, with great Family sized cabins and all the necessary safety equipment for children.
Maybe is incredible in every way. She is a beautiful boat and coupled with her outstanding crew is a dream to sail for both the experienced and inexperienced. As well as having exceptional knowledge and control of the boat, the good-humoured and approachable crew also provided magnificent food, and were fantastic with the children. They involved them whilst sailing, giving each of them little jobs and tasks, and once anchored played games with them and even had them baking bread and pizza. They all worked tirelessly to ensure everyone was happy every minute of the day.
Our trip was extremely well planned with the perfect balance of sailing and stop off points for adventure activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkelling. There was nothing better than having drinks on deck in the evening beneath the stars whilst the children were close by, fast asleep in their bunks. Then, after an action-packed day of sailing it was so nice to retreat to your bunk and be rocked gently to sleep by the Ocean.
The trip left us with amazing memories and a burning desire to get back on board as soon as possible.
In spite of the current pandemic situation, they were utterly amazing, working extra hard to make the trip a success, even with various islands being closed-off to access. I left the ship once it got to Antigua and we realised that St Maarten was out-of-bounds and that travel home plans would need to alter.
Despite the adverse backdrop for this trip, I had an amazing time, met some wonderful people and got to see a beautiful part of our world in an adventurous style. I will look forward to joining Blue Clipper again at some point in the future.
