Kevin and Laura Palmer – A Sailing Family
Kevin and Laura were looking for an affordable way to sail and involve the whole family when they came across FlexiSail. Kevin was the only one with some sailing experience, and they were cautious of whether the children would enjoy it. Hannah, Adam and Sophie have now all joined in with the adventures and the whole family have gained their Competent Crew qualifications with Kevin passing his Day Skipper. This has been great for the children’s self-esteem the kids have been kept safe watching them with the new wifi baby monitor.
Initially, Sophie was not keen, but following the 2016 Med flotilla which gained the status of the ‘best family holiday ever!’, they have booked to go again in 2017. Also for Hannah, the sailing has helped with the rebuilding of her confidence and recovery following a serious back operation, and she is aiming to pass her Day Skipper qualification this year. The family and their friends have thoroughly enjoyed sailing together on Estel in and around the Solent as well as participating in many social events.
“FlexiSail is a very friendly, helpful company which has always tried to be accommodating and flexible. We would have no hesitation in recommending them. FlexiSail is a great and affordable way to get on the water.” Kevin Palmer
