Met de „Steady“ een fantastische zeilweek gehad in Schotland van 20 tot 26 mei 2019. Het was een beetje fris en het weer had een wat wisselend karakter, maar er kon prima worden gezeild zodat ook de passagiers/bemanning lekker aan het werk konden. De verzorging door gastvrouw Mariëlle en gastheer Jan Willem was uitstekend en met de overige passagiers (Duits en Engels) was het heel gezellig. Zoals wij het beleefd hebben, een echte aanrader!

It was a bit chilly and the weather was somewhat variable, but sailing was fine so that the passengers / crew could also enjoy working. The care provided by hostess Mariëlle and host Jan Willem was excellent and the other passengers (German and English) had a great time. As we experienced it, highly recommended!

It was a great and unforgettable experience with lot of fun to spend a week on the Steady in the Inner Hebrides. Marielle and Jan-Willem are very friendly and professional skippers, you feel well looked after and safe. The Steady is a comfortable, very well maintained ship and Marielle’s culinary skills leave nothing to be desired. Very recommendable. At this point we would like to thank Marielle and Jan-Willem and all other participants once again for everything! Birgit and Klaus from Germany (2018)

Great experience on an extraordinary well-maintained, very seaworthy ship! Sailing in between the wonderful scottish islands with this very professional and knowledgeable and very sympathetic couple is highly recommended. Start looking forward!

Feedback from Hartmut Neuber on July 30th 2022 trip;
Hello Marielle, hello Jan-Willem,
Hope you all feel fine and had some more marvellous trips! I enjoyed sailing round Mull very much! 
Meanwhile I made a small video of our beautiful “törn” and used some pictures from your website. 
Best wishes,

I had a lovely holiday on The Steady 6th – 12th August 2022
Jan-Willem and Marielle were very welcoming which was important to me as a solo traveller and first-time sailor!
We had some great walks on the beautiful islands of Muck, Rum, Eigg and Mull. The food on board The Steady was excellent and
as a Vegetarian I was very well catered for. There were some good books on board with information about the islands.
I enjoyed the company of some lovely shipmates.

I would definitely try this kind of holiday again.

Great holiday , despite some poor weather- though as we’re are walkers we used the lay up time well.

Excellent hosts.  Both Marielle and Jan-Willem could not have done more for us. Sailing was very good and safe and everyone was able to get involved – all food was fantastic , especially sourcing local ingredient .

Steady is well maintained and comfortable.

Some very lovely and complimentary feedback from Graham Scott on June 4th 2022 trip;
“A fantastic trip? Worth waiting for.
We could not have asked for better hosts. They were very welcoming , and were a delight to share our holiday with. Both excellent sailors, Jan Willem keen for us to get involved and a good teacher, and Marielle’s meals were just so good.
They even managed to arrange for sunshine ☀️, dolphins 🐬 and even a minky whale for a few seconds………….As a group we all agreed that we would definitely sail again on “Steady”. As we were a small group that have known each other for years, the dynamics on board were very relaxing and we would probably look for a similar experience.”

Feedback from Bill Stow on May 21st trip 2022;

“It was a really great holiday. The weather meant that we were not able to do the original itinerary because of high winds but Jan-Willem and Marielle quickly found excellent alternatives with superb walks on Lismore and Kerera. Just one walk was probably a little long. The combination of sailing and walking worked very well. Marielle’s cooking was exceptional -tasty and imaginative. I’d never slept overnight on a small boat before and was surprised how comfortable it was. I can’t think how the holiday could have been improved. There weren’t even any midges (or not to speak of!)”
