Thanks you very much for all your help and patience over the arrangements for the boat trip today which was a great success and appreciated by all our members. Your two crew members were excellent and one was the nephew of our ex-Captain and President and whose mother lives about 4 miles from the Club, so I don’t know how you arranged that!!
The Parking was so convenient and eased all my worries and everything else worked like clockwork. In all, a very enjoyable and interesting day.
I am hoping that positive reports will increase numbers for a potential second trip and I will be in touch.
My thanks once more,
Kind regards,
