Just a quick email, to let you know we arrived safely home again after a wonderful sailing trip on the Chronos. It was really very beautiful and we enjoyed every minute of it: a beautiful ship, very nice surroundings and nice excursions, fine weather, a perfect crew with a wonderful cook (the lobster of the captain’s dinner on Sunday evening was delicious), it was in one word GREAT! We want to thank you and your colleagues very much for all the arrangements you made for us (stay, flights, transfers etc.)! This made our own preparations and the travel itself a lot easier. I don’t think this was our last trip with Sailing-Classics, we are thinking already about the next one!
Wim & Yolande über Neujahr auf der CHRONOS in der Karibik
Once again a great experience
Dear Sailing Classics team, the sailing trip on the Rhea from Marinella to Saint-Florent was once again a great experience. Captain and crew of the highest competence, with outstanding friendliness and helpfulness. And the ship itself was a constant feel-good moment. I'm looking forward to seeing you again.
Peter in August 2019 with the RHEA from Sardinia to Corsica
Thank you for this successful holiday!
We made only the best experiences on this voyage on the ship itself. As a sailor with many thousands of miles of own skipper experience, I have appreciated the careful and responsible navigation as well as the choice of route by Captain Nico; he is really a great enrichment for your team in human and technical regard! The rest of the team deserves no less praise; all helpful, dedicated and above all friendly and courteous. Thank you for this successful holiday!
Franz and Margarete, in August 2019 back from the RHEA from Sardinia to Corsica
The holiday at CHRONOS was wonderful and the whole team fabulous. He then reached his climax with our vows at the captain's dinner. We are already looking forward to taking another trip with Sailing-Classics as soon as possible. Until then a very big thank you again and see you soon again.
Steffi and Ernst in June 2019 on the CHRONOS in the Strait of Gibraltar
The crew was a really good team!
I can't put it any other way, the trip was just great. Apart from this beautiful ship and the daily sailing, which was a unique experience with all the sails, everything was just right. The crew was a really good team. Every single one of them fulfilled his tasks with friendliness and professionalism... You could see that everyone enjoyed it... Although I have made many different kinds of boat trips, this one was my most beautiful one.
Freya, in May 2019 on the CHRONOS from Lisbon to Cadiz
An outstanding captain...
Although this was the 4th time that I have been sailing with Sailing-Classics, this trip was once again outstanding and this was mainly due to Captain Richard Slootweg, who always arranged his trip with commitment and friendliness so that the guests could see and experience as much as possible. Of course we were lucky again with the weather, cook Randolf and the sailing area. I already knew the sailing area, but thanks to Richard and his crew I experienced much more new and different things than the first time. And sailing has not been neglected either...
Jörg on the CHRONOS in March 2019 from Martinique to the Grenadines and back
Happy after five weeks on board...
They were very relaxed and safe weeks. Thanks to Captain Nico, who had the ship under control at all times. Thanks to the deck crew who skilfully implemented the sailing instructions. Thanks to the service crew, who were always there to fulfil the wishes of the guests in the most friendly way. Thanks to the chefs who were able to convince with their skills.

And, of course, thanks to the on-board engineer, who was immediately on the spot if there was anything that needed to be repaired. The ship and the entire crew on board made the trips a great personal experience, which I will keep in my best memory.
A great combination of sailing and hiking
Congratulations on your trip, by the way. It was a great combination of sailing and hiking. It's a pity that this only exists on Cape Verde at the moment. Congratulations also to your captain, who even hoisted the sails and turned off the engine at low wind speeds. We had dreamlike days with a dreamlike crew and a super tour guide.
Klaus and Karin at CHRONOS in Cape Verde in November 2018
A great experience!
We had the pleasure from 06.10. - 13.10. to accompany the transfer of the Kairós. You have a great team and a great ship, which gave us an incomparable sailing experience. Starting with Captain Nico, who despite the strong flu is not only a good captain, but also a real "unique captain", with a good instinct for his team, his ship and his guests. Chapeau for the choice! Even Elena, who is really good with food (who likes to eat, appreciates that), and the technically versed John and everyone else on board.
H.C. and A. after the transfer Venice - Malta at the KAIRÓS, October 2018
Everyone in their place: Top! It was fun. You can't do anything for the good weather, but it was good for the frame and our enthusiasm. Although we have been sailing a lot with our own classic yacht for 30 years now, we will certainly want to be your guest again, contrary to our own expectations, and are already looking forward to a repeat of this unique experience.
We're home again - unfortunately.
The bed and desk just swings still - they were unforgettable days. Once again we would like to thank you and the whole KAIRÓS team - Nico, John, Mathias, Aafke, Deborah, Sky and the magician of the kitchen - Elena. We didn't expect to be spoiled so much - I like to take the felt 3 kilos home with me in a "duffel bag". We'll be back, we promise.
Martin and Susanne after their transfer trip Venice - Malta at the KAIRÓS in October 2018
For 20 years I dreamed of this trip ...
A friendly ahoy to you,
Actually, I wanted to write you a real letter, but the everyday life has me now firmly in its grasp, and so unfortunately, a lot remains on the tracks of what you have planned. But under no circumstances do I want to forget one thing, to say thank you to the entire CHRONOS team and crew.
André after the Atlantic crossing Bahamas - Gibraltar on the CHRONOS in May/June 2018
There were wonderful days on board, which were priceless, it was an experience I would like to miss under any circumstances. When our microcosm shoved off on 26/05/2018 in Nassau at the John-Alfred Kai, broke the lines and the CHRONOS pushed out of the harbour, we were forged together for good luck and a certain excitement built up. Everyone was curious how it developed. But after a short time it was clear, it will be a great experience and it played out as a great community. Richard directed the yacht through the waves with an "ass calm" and inspired everyone for the sextant, Benjamin conjured up a meal for us all in his galley (no matter what the weather). Piotr just fixed everything from the tumble dryer to the hook, Marie-Jeanne washed our T-shirts. These names are representative of all, I would have to name each, but then the mail will be infinitely long. Everything seemed effortless, though it was not easy. We soon felt we were not just guests, we belonged to the crew.
Yes, of course there was sometimes the feeling of standing in the way or it was just different than expected. But that's life and even a cloud makes the blue sky really beautiful.
The limousine to Malaga, you could not have cared if the taxi drivers ripped us off, no, you got us a dream car and had us safely transported to Malaga.
For 20 years I have dreamed of this trip, since a trip from Sassnitz on Rügen to Bornholm, as a friend of the Atlantic swell raved on about it to me. And then this experience!
I hope to be back on board with you soon, I have planned a trip from Europe to the Caribbean so in 2020, because I do not have 20 years left to dream.
So again, thank you very much for the opportunity to experience this.
Heart-felt greetings from Frankfurt to all, including the team on the high seas in the Mediterranean :-)
PS: Petri wants to pass along to Piotr and Jan, she will catch another "Tuna".
10 very beautiful days
Went from Mallorca via Menorca, Corsica to Sardinia on board the CHRONOS. It was a fantastic trip. Very nice route choice, great and very friendly staff, excellent and varied food, great experiences. Would like to book again right away.
