2017Mediterranean Croatia from Dubrovnik to Split and Trogir including the Elaphite Islands, Mljet, Korcula, Vis Hvar, Brac amongst others. Also Sardinia and Corsica. we had a fabulous time! I've already shared your website with a few people I work with who may be interested in sailing with you in the future. We thoroughly enjoyed the week with you and regretted not making it a longer trip, I realised I prioritise work too much! THANK YOU! The trip exceeded all of our expectations and we had a great time! While some people would call it the trip of a lifetime, we know that there will be more and we would like to reserve our spot now! Take care. Sail safely! Thanks again for the great time. Split was interesting, but very crowded. Now in Rome and hot. Wishing I could go for a swim. Thanks again Croatia Anchorage Croatia Anchorage Sailing with new bimini Lunch on Deck Hi Len. We are trying to adjust to life after Croatia. We all want to come back. Hope your current trip is going well. Great trip. Very relaxing, Len takes carry of everything and you just enjoy the sailing, the boat, the country, and oh yes Len's cooking. Happy Helming Lunch on deck Under Spinnaker Croatia Anchorage Windward under new Mimini I absolutely had the best vacation ever with you on wishing for the moon. I had to get used to waking up, relaxing with my book and NOT hearing a voice from below -cafe latte?- You made this trip so special with your great sailing skills, knowledge of the area, cooking expertise and wonderful relaxed way of giving us ideas but also allowing us input in deciding where to go each day. Astro Navigigation Instruction On both trips we have had the time of our lives, great company, a beautiful yacht and visited some magic parts of France, Italy and Croatia
2016Mediterranean from Isola d'Elba to Greece- Corfu, Paxos, Cephalonia, Zakinthos, Peloponnesus, Kythera, Lavrion, Evia, Korinth Canal Thank you so much for your more than professional care of us, especially myself.  We lived a full and busy week and you were so cooperative with all our request/demands and looked after us wonderfully.
It was sad Kathleen couldn't be part of the trip, however without her we discovered your culinary skills! Delicious, thank you.
I do want you to know how much I enjoyed the holiday. The sailing was great and I don't remember experiencing such fair winds on our last  two holidays with you. Lizzie and I are back safe and sound - thank you so much for making our return home so smooth by driving us back to the ferry - and for looking after us so well.  I feel truly enriched by having been back on a boat,
sailing down this beautiful rugged coast to Kardamyli and then to Kalamata, learning about Ulysses and the ManiŠit was an adventure with, for me, treasures found!  Am still marvelling at it all and those extraordinary ancient sites. A massive thank you to you both again for such a wonderful week and an amazing start to our travels, we really enjoyed ourselves!

2015Mediterranean from Isola d'Elba to Croatia and Greece - Elba, Sicily, Dubrovnik, Hvar, Corfu, Zakinthos, Kithera, Sifnos, Siros, Serifos,Amorgos, Patmos, Kos, Rhodes Dear Len & Cathleen,Thanks so much for making the week in Croatia such a beautiful experience. Once again sailing with you on Wishing For the Moon was such a pleasure. I hope your current cruising in Greece is going well. I am thinking that Greece is my next choice for sailing with you. Please stay in touch and keep the sailing diary going. Have a great summer. With Fondest Regards Susan Dear Len,Nice to hear from you. Me and Peik still think with joy our honeymoon a few years back when sailing with you.
We now have a little girl (1,5years old, turns 2 in May) and would ask if you have had toddlers on board in past years & how has that been working out? Know that with active kid like ours it might be a bit different sail trip compared to that what we had but as sailing holiday in some form is very much an interesting idea even with the little one, would first of course like to hear your opinion. Hopefully everything is good with you & your wife! Here in Finland the temperature is soon reaching -30degrees so sailing in Greece doesn't really sound bad at all.. ☺️ Anchored in a quiet Greek bay Cyclades - Serifos - Mega Livadhi Moonrise - Hvar Croatia Dolphins - Aegean Sea

Our trip with you far exceeded our expectations.. Thanks soooo much for a wonderful holiday I wanted to say thank you for making out vacation a very pleasant experience. It was a carefree experience that I would love to repeat one day Thank you so much for our wonderful family holiday on board Wishing for the Moon. We had a fantastic time, and it was a great intitiation into sailing for the two girls, and a much needed re-initiation for us, grown-ups. You probably have not had such a novice crew for a long time! Dear Len & Kathleen,Many thanks for the most wonderful week I can remember. It became the closing act of a 3 week dream that  I could never have imagined. Everything about my week on WISHING FOR THE MOON was perfection - the winds, the water, the company which includes both of you and the yummy meals. I wish I could put my life on rewind to repeat it. Please stay in touch. Regards Susan From the moment we stepped on board to the moment we left we had a really special time, enjoyed the excellent sailing, amazing views, wonderful company and most delicious lunches We cannot thank you enough for providing the honeymoon of our dreams. We have nothing but praise for your beautiful yacht and incredible hospitality A little note to express our huge thank you to you both for looking after us so well having our week with you. The food was amazing, the sailing excellent and the mooring brilliant Turtle on a calm day Video of our Atlantic crossing
