Well, that is the first week of the 2019 season under our belts, and what a great week it has been.
Jen landed on back on the island last Thursday morning after a winter working at Horizon Yacht Charters in the British Virgin Islands. After a quick cuppa at home we were straight to the shed to start getting ready for our first courses of the season.
We are grateful to our wonderful team, Tim Chan and Nathan Pickles did a super job on the boat park getting all the dinghies ready. Juan, Jason and my Dad lending a hand at the shed to get all the vehicles going again. And Mum for flying through the shop like a cleaning tornado!
Three days later we are on the water with our first Youth Sailing Week of 2019. Instructors Tim, Nathan and Luke Crowe ran a superb Seamanship Course for our Assistant Instructor candidates and a fabulous Stage 2 week for our younger sailors.
Port Erin delivered us sunshine, flat water and some great sailing conditions in the easterly breeze. We are feeling truly blessed this week.
Thank you team and thank you sailors – you have been awesome. Here’s hoping the season continues like this.
