Firstly, thanks to the Cumberland staff for all their support from booking, to prepping the vessel, to briefing, and taking care of us while we were out in the Islands. Everything worked great! The coaching from Sue, Graeme and the staff was appreciated, and helped us enjoy every single day we spent out in the Islands. Setting out, Geoff's thorough review of all the handling procedures, local area items, and safety brief got us on our way feeling confident sailing across to our first night at Nara Inlet. I also know that there is a tremendous amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to prep the vessels, and keep everything running smoothly in the office, and we appreciate that as well. Our favorite spots on the trip were Chalkies and Blue Pearl Bay. We also really enjoyed Esk, Stonehaven, and hiking to Betty's beach near Tongue Bay. We were able to get sails up almost every day, and had lots of fun cruising around, enjoying the sights, sounds, and atmosphere. The kids had a great time riding around in the dinghy, and couldn't get enough of jumping off the boat for a swim. The reef life was just spectacular, and the water in the Northern anchorages was gin-clear! The best thing was we could snorkel, swim and dive to our hearts content without being rushed back to a resort cattle boat as we would have been on a tour. Planning passages was a piece of cake with helpful advice from the team at Cumberland over the radio scheds every day. Even though we were on the smallest cat, we found we had plenty of room to stretch out and relax. The Seawind was easy to maneuver, and a breeze to sail (no pun intended). I enjoyed everything about our picture-perfect sailing holiday. I cannot recommend it highly enough. We spent some extra time in Airlie on our return admiring the rest of the fleet so we can plan our return booking.Richard - ALICE SPRINGS, NORTHERN TERRITORY, AU
