    Thank you to all the skippers and crew who participated in yesterdays corporate sail day - our guests had an absolutely fantastic experience - loved it.

    Well done staff - catering lunch and afternoon tea for nearly 300 people is a little outside of the norm for us - but conducted beautifully without any drama.

    Thank you.
