Four different guest reviews for FLYING GINNY
When we first saw Captain Austin and Chef Philippa at Molly Malones our first thought was how young they were. It didnt take long for us to realize that was not a problem. They handled themselves in a very professional manner at all times. Captain Austin handled the boat wonderfully and always asked what we wanted to do. When we didnt know, he would take over and take us to all of the places he thought we would like to see. When we went diving, he helped with our tanks, holding onto to them until we went into the water. Chef Philippa was a great chef and her meals were all wonderful. We all felt very pampered and taken care of on this trip. I highly recommend these two people and you can use this recommendation in any advertisement you wish.
Captain Austin took control right away and we were off on the brilliant blue waters with the sails to the wind. We truly learned to respect his control of the Flying Ginny and his knowledge of the area. His suggestions suited each of us including excellent sailing, scuba diving coves, snorkeling in the turquoise waters, and sitting on the white sandy beaches. Chef Philippa, a graduate of the Ashburton Cookery School in London and has a law degree, divides her time between the galley, assisting the Captain, and as a Master Scuba Diver. She led our tentative divers to a shipwreck and other underwater sites. Her skills in the 5X 5 galley were exceptional. The small area included all the tools of the trade except a microwave. The freezer was well stocked and two refrigerators held the fresh products. She did use a food processor as the tossing of the boat was a bit dangerous for a knife. All meals were served on deck in the balmy air. Every breakfast was different and the Brioche French toast with banana rum sauce was perfect with our morning coffee or tea. Lunches included wraps, grilled chick- en, Mahi Mahi and Captains famous cheese burgers. Cocktail hour, which always started pretty early, was accompanied by appetizers as Romesco sauce with pita slices or caramelized red onion crostini. Captain Austin, with a Business Management degree and family restaurant history, excelled at the barbeque. His beef tender- loin was cooked perfectly for each taste. This was served with wonderful cream and garlic scalloped potatoes, grilled asparagus, Marsala wine braised shallots and Balsamic sauted cabbage with chocolate mousse as our dessert. The galley became a sweat box as our Chef prepared each dish including a made from scratch cheese- cake that was exceptional.
Both Austin and Philippa were awesome. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Especially appreciated Austins willingness to sail as often as possible and Philippas 6th sense in appearing just as you finished your drink or had a whim of something to munch. Both Austin and Philippa were awesome. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Especially appreciated Austins willingness to sail as often as possible and Philippas 6thsense in appearing just as you finished your drink or had a whim of something to munch. The anniversary dinner they put on for us was just amazing. Private beach, perfect timing for the sunset. Chilled champagne, a sumptuous dinner that met our dietary needs without compromising on taste or presentation. A beautiful beach blanket which we got to take home and all under flickering candlelight. Truly spectacular and something that a simple thank you does not really do justice to. I had this simple idea and they produced an absolute masterpiece. Austin and Philippa were soooo accommodating and did such a fantastic job with each and every request we made. I dont think weve been anywhere, anytime when weve been treated so wonderfully. Every day was better than the one prior and every evening was magical. The sailing was outstanding. The food was scrumptious and so pretty I couldnt help but take pictures of it.
