Beaufort to Bermuda

5

In that late november 2023, after carefully monitoring the weather I was time for an offshore navigation / training voyage between Beaufort to Bermuda. On board Lady Esprit, a Little Habor 44 center-cockpit bluewater sailing boat. I am the 4th wheel, from a strong crew of Captian Jim. it was my first jump in the gulf stream, what an amazing experience i was impressed with how cabably is the boat with the centerboard down and well balanced The speed was frequently at 8 Knots Jim, Chris, John, thank you for welcoming me into your friendship. Salud! Nick

Great Capt

5

Jim is a very kind and warm person with a lovely boat. He is a good communicator and it is a pleasure to sail with him. Jim is organized and good at logistical planning, keeping the safety of all on board at highest priority, while also being flexible/ easy going and conversational. I was just onboard with Jim for a three day passage (with two other crew members), but I hope to find the time to join him again for a longer journey! I’m very glad to have met Jim and had the opportunity to join him and the beautiful Esprit on their travels.

Fun to sail with

5

I‘ve sailed with Jim from Cape Cod to Halifax and cruised with him Cape Breton, the South of Newfoundland and back to Halifax. During the almost six weeks I‘ve been integrated into his family and got to know him as an open-hearted, relaxed, generous guy who is spontaneous and fun to be around with. He is an experienced sailor with a lifetime of experience who handles his boat well in any condition. His passage planning is conservative on the safe side. His spacious boat is seakind, tracks well, handles well and always felt safe in adverse conditions. I‘d love to sail with him again sometime.

Esprit was a solid beauty of a boat, in impeccable condition. Jim is a safe and skilled captain who enjoys life to the fullest......fun to be around and a great person to share a voyage with.

The most amazing experience

5

I ended up rebooking my departure date and extending my stay with Jim on his boat because it was just too perfect. I stayed with him and his friends for about two weeks sailing and enjoying the Bahamas. I learnt a lot about boats, sailing and the famous Georgetown sailing community. Jim's boat is a wooden beauty in great shape with plenty of space for everyone. Besides the amazing turquoise waters and the Bahamians themselves Jim was the true highlight of my trip. He is a generous, kind, caring and to the right degree crazy guy. He's well-traveled, smart, fun, young at heart and great to talk to plus makes his guests and crew feel comfortable at all times. You won't regret sharing boat life with Jim!
