I've now had the good fortune to sail around the Med 2 summers in a row with Phil. The first year we were in the Dodecanese islands, and the second year we were in the Cycladic islands. Both are beautiful with a good mix of food & drink, sightseeing and nightlife. Phil has a great knowledge of the islands and good places to check out. The boat is in excellent shape, nearly new, and well looked after, with good sized cabins. Can't wait to get back on the boat with Phil next summer!
Our three trips sailing with Phil in the Mediterranean have been such wonderful and memorable holidays. Phil is a friendly, outgoing, and very competent skipper which makes for worry free holidays for others on board and especially for novice sailors. He has sailed so much in these waters that he knows every little bay with its special memorable sights and characteristics. Each anchorage offers wonderful options of great little eating places, walks, and special attractions. No wonder he never gets tired of sailing around Turkey, Greece, and further north to Croatia. It's an opportunity to experience a different way of life, to relax, and to have such fun with friends. Our highlights - there are so many, but include Rhodes, the Dodecanese and Ionian Islands, Corinth Canal, Delphi, Cephalonia, Corfu, the food and culture, and many more. We'll do it again Phil.
We've been sailing with Phil on two occasions. One time with my girlfriend and the other with the kids too. Both times appear in our top holidays ever. Phil knows the best places and makes sure that the wind takes you to them. It is so amazing to experience the Mediterranean from the water. Without any hesitation I would recommend a sailing holiday aboard 37 Rocks.
Over a period of 6 years we have had 3 very memorable and extensive sailing holidays with Captain Phil. We have sailed through the Agean and visited most of the Cyclades Islands. On another holiday we sailed the Croatian coast and more recently we met Phil in Rhodes and sailed the southern Turkish coast to Cyprus. Phil is an excellent sailor who over a period of many years has come to know the eastern Mediterranean, its waters, people and customs extremely well. His yacht 37 Rocks is a pleasure to sail and Phil is a cheerful and pleasant skipper who encourages you to participate in the sailing.
Phil is a knowledgable and an experienced skipper with advanced technology to make the trip interesting and stress-free. He made it very simple for my arrival and was at a cafe ready to meet me and get my bags aboard the ship! It was nice to have meals aboard as well as going out to some great restaurants as a group. Overall, I would without a doubt recommend sailing on 37 Rocks under the guidance of skipper Phil!
