" I have gone on day sails as well as overnights on the Frayed Knot. All of these trips have ended with the words “another wonderful sail”. Captain Claude’s attentiveness, desire to make his guests comfortable, as well as his supreme competence and ability to navigate have made the experiences memorable. I enthusiastically give him a 5 star rating! "

" I birthday-gifted a sailing lesson with Captain Claude at Frayed Knot to a friend and we had an incredible time. Claude was a knowledgeable and kind (and often forgiving!) teacher, and the boat was a joy to sail. I highly recommend the experience!"

" I bought my husband private sailing lessons with Captain Claude aboard Frayed Knot and he had a fantastic experience. Claude is an experienced educator and gave him all the detailed information he wanted as well as ample opportunity to get hands on experience. We couldn't be happier! "

" An experience of a lifetime! Captain Claude and his wife Judy want nothing more than to have your trip be the most relaxed and memorable as possible. I can't thank you enough for being such great hosts aboard your sailboat. I had always been a "power boat" person.Thanks to Claude and his wife Judy, I never knew what I was missing- I can't wait to go on another sail! "

" Our 3 day trip was unbelievable - what an experience! Living aboard the Frayed Knot was truly a pleasure and not feeling as if you were on a boat! Captain Claude and wife Judy were so hospitable, accommodating and fun while sailing or at the dock. Being able to experience this voyage on water clearly exceeded my expectations and not to be missed. I would highly recommend this charter to everyone.."
"..Definitely 5 Stars!! "
