Crew Reviews
“I had a great time, so much more than expected, and I learned a lot. Thanks for having me participate in the sojourn.” – Vicki (2017)

“Sailing on Strikhedonia was such an incredible experience! Chris taught me everything I know about sailing and took our crew to swim with sea lions, dolphin watching, sea turtle spotting and successfully navigated us through a bunch of unforeseen problems. Can’t wait for the next time I have an opportunity to sail on this ship!” – Janis (2017)

“Sailing Chris aboard the Strikhedonia is an incredible experience. A knowledgeable and fun captain along with a well kept vessel in the sea of Cortez makes for an unforgettable time no matter what. I was able to learn more about sailing while still enjoying beautiful anchorages and a nice relaxing atmosphere. It was a great time and I can’t wait to get back.” – Harrison (2017)

“Thanks for having us on your boat. We’ll never look at a margarita the same way, hahaha. That was an amazing passage and if you ever need crew again let us know!” – Jeff and Jenifer (2018)
