    “My husband and I were given the gift of a 2-hour sail on a 12-meter yacht in Newport, RI. The booking experience was excellent -- very clear and concise. We were met at the stated time and place on the day of our sail by a very friendly representative, Meredith, who saw us safely onto the launch, then met us at the dock on our return. The sail itself was incredible. We sailed on Heritage, with Captain Duncan and crew (Tom and Chrissy). They were all friendly and helpful, and the captain pointed out areas of interest on shore and offered up some local history as well as history of 12-meter racing and our specific boat. We were encouraged to help with hoisting sails if we wanted to participate, and several people took a turn at the helm under Duncan's watchful eye. The sail was a full 2 hours, in awesome conditions. All in all it was a fantastic experience!”
    “We have been on 2 adventures with Cloud 9 and both have been wonderful. We have had a lot of fun and done things we would never have thought of doing. Thanks!”
    “Had a great time!”
    “The sailing was wonderful. My one complaint is that we made the reservation with ,cloud 9 for July 6 but the sailing company had us down for July 7. Luckily there was still room on the 7/6 boat and we could get on. ”
