    Our whole group would just like to send a huge thank you to Captain Claude and Judy for hosting us on the Frayed Knot for a spectacular afternoon of sailing! Both Claude and Judy could not have been more kind and accommodating for our large family sailing excursion. The boat is absolutely gorgeous, spacious, and comfortable. Our hosts provided great amenities for our sail, were so wonderful with our 2 small children, who could not stop talking about how fun the sail was -- "best sail ever!" If you are looking for a spectacular, comfortable, educational, and above all, memorable sailing experience for your family or larger group, we highly recommend the Frayed Knot! We look forward to future family sails with Claude and Judy.
