My wife and I took a 34ft Dehler monohull Treasure for a week. We stayed the night before at Shingley Beach Resort which was close by for an 08:30am start.The owner Terry met us and gave us a good briefing followed by a half day sailguide which was a good way to see what worked and how. It was a good comfy boat, 2009 built I think. Well equipped. The sailing here is quite easy but the navigation and anchoring is a bit more challenging - we were on a big spring tide and being Poms, not used to looking out for reefs and bommies. But it was fun and the new copy of 100 Magic Miles on board gave more than adequate instruction. We didn't need to stay at any resort/ports and found good anchorages every night. Turtle Bay was a bit bumpy - unpredictable swell, not wind. The various passages between islands were fun to navigate and there wasn't much traffic to avoid. Returning the boat was easy and Cumberland Charter Yachts seem to have their routines very well sorted. A special mention needs to be made of Sue who is the face who greets you in the office. She was absolutely calm and welcoming which is very helpful as you try and get sorted and set off. We would definitely use CCY again .Ian - , UK
