Re: Mid Atlantic Yacht Services

I use Mid Atlantic Yacht Services on every Atlantic crossing I do and am never disappointed. This year I crossed with the 123’ketch Galileo G. I was in contact with Duncan before my departure to discuss arrival dates, berthing possibilities and yacht dimensions etc, although I did not need to talk too much about my yachts requirements as Duncan already had all the info from a previous crossing some years before! My departure was delayed due to very inclement Atlantic weather but I was in contact the whole time with Horta. When I did leave, a few days out I was informed by MAYS about an EPIRB that had been activated and he put me in touch with a ground support group coordinating the search for the missing sailors – without Duncan and the team I would never have know about this and been able to conduct a 5 day search of the area as we passed through. On arrival, we were talked into the space and told all necessary local knowledge about harbour depths as we entered, we tied up and the authorities were on hand as soon as we were ready to accept them. All paperwork had been prefilled making the whole entry process as straight forward as any port I have been to ever. The MAYS team were on hand day or night for any assistance required and it seemed nothing was too much trouble. Our stay in Faial was as wonderful as ever with the crew enjoying many of the wonders of the Azores, and the Captain enjoying the wonders of the crew being off enjoying wonders! We took fuel and bought some supplies through the MAYS team and again everything went faultlessly. They were on hand to release our lines and organized a small tug to pull us off the pier into a stiff breeze. Billing was clear and simple and taken care of with classy efficiency. I cannot recommend Duncan Sweet and the MAYS team highly enough for the services they provide. Long may they be helping yachts through their Atlantic crossings.
