Thank you for a brilliant weekend I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to have a bit wind and great company. I appreciated in particular mooring under sail which was good fun with the wind.
The discussions you instigated were informative and delivered intelligently, professionally & as host you have no second.
It was a great weekend with good people,
Thank you Andy
