Once again Mary, a sincere thanks to you and the team…

Please forgive … I also meant to extend a great deal of thanks to you + the Windcraft Team for all your efforts … Nic + I had a great time … it was a pleasure meeting up with others … exceptional … and all your hard work should not be overlooked … thanks …

A further word of thanks … the main on Ghost … thanks for organising this … and how good is this … a tight sail … wow … what a difference … pushing out of Port Stephens into the wind … sails tight … wonderful performance … down wind … delightful … the sail home frequently saw us running at over 10 kts … comfortably … with me down below cooking …

The smile on my face … Nic’s face is a testimony to the agility and power of these yachts … and then an ongoing confirmation to anyone who asks … these yachts … even something as large as a 47 … can be sailed short handed … a father and son … in even the most extreme conditions … and then when you want performance … there is no disappointment …

At Port Stephens it was delightful to talk … excite others … with the possibilities opportunities with their yacht … to give confidence … to identify opportunity …
