Dear Stephanie & Dennis
Just wanted to write you a note to tell you much we enjoyed our sailing charter with you guys! Pat and I had been looking forward to this trip for a couple of years. It took us a long time to put together a group of people that we thought would be compatible and then convince them to go with us. We were anxious about how the group would get along, and what it would be like to spend an entire week in such close quarters, with the added unknown of a captain and first mate whom we’d never met. But WOW you guys just fit right in with the group and made us all feel like we had known you for years and made us feel right at home on your lovely sailboat!
The boat itself was decorated with such charm and the furnishings had such a lovely Caribbean feel. Every picture seemed to have its own story and we could tell that the boat was decorated with love in every detail.
As the meals were served each day, I always marveled at how Stephanie was going to outdo herself at the next meal. Somehow she did it every time tho! The meals were absolutely delicious and every day brought a new spice or food combination. I am still impressed that you could prepare meals that were so delicious every single time we sat down. And they were always plated so beautifully too!
Somehow, Stephanie snuck into our cabin every day and made the bed and straightened our messes. This was always such a nice surprise! I just don’t know how you kept track of who was where all of the time so that you knew when you could take care of our cabins.
Another amazing thing was that each day we arrived at another island with Captain Dennis describing our choice for the day: Do you want to swim? Snorkel? Hike? Stay onboard and read? Go to shore for a walk on the beach? Visit the local scene of food or shopping? All of the above? Dennis also seemed to know just what we wanted and when we wanted it. The daily afternoon painkiller helped round out each day of fun and relaxation.
It was great to enjoy your sailing expertise and watch you take care of your yacht. It was so great getting to know you guys and having you join in the fun. The fact that the two of you love your job made our vacation spectacular. You guys are the Rockstars on Steroids!!!
We sincerely miss you! Happy Holidays!
