Charter Client Comments: Catamaran VIP One

We just received wonderful comments back from charterers we had aboard the catamaran VIP ONE for a Christmas family sailing vacation in the Virgin Islands (mom, dad, and 4 kids aged 23, 21, 19, 13). Our clients own an award-winning seafood restaurant in South Carolina, so to say that "the chef did an amazing job" has quite a bit of clout.

UPDATE: MAY 28, 2014 - David wrote to tell us that they were no longer crew on VIP One and wanted us to update this blog post. Also, VIP One is no longer chartering within the Caribbean Antilles.

Captain David
First, we received this message from the crew:
Dear Sheila and Bob,

Happy new year to you and successful 2013! The charter went very, very well. They were very easy going guests and respectful and a happy family too:)

We are missing them already so thank you again for your charter and hope to hear from you soon.

Kindest regards
David Gueguen
And a few days ago we received this message from the charterers:
Dear Sheila and Bob,

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you guys about our amazing trip (life in the "real" world got in the way).

We can't rave enough to everyone that asks about our trip. David & Rita.... what an amazing couple, they totally made the trip! Fun, young, entertaining, intelligent well just fantastic!

David (and Rita) was so very thoughtful to ALL of us, and Rita was totally up for the challenge of cooking for a family with some demanding requests (vegetarian, Type1 diabetic, and VERY hungry young men), she did an amazing job. The sailboat was kept in immaculate condition and David truly takes care of it like his own, and it's in tip-top condition.

We love to sail, as does David, so it was a perfect match. Everyday they took us to a new "adventure" and he ALWAYS made sure we had fun... we hated to leave them :(

Every evening we had something different going on, one evening very though-provoking exchange of ideas and one evening we just played games... or out on one of the islands. We can't say enough good things about David and Rita, truly gems!!! We recommend them HIGHLY to anyone: families with kids, adults only and everything in-between! We wanted to take them home with us!

Please let them know that we miss them terribly and send them big kisses & hugs,
Best Regards,
Ann-Therese & Eli  + 4 kids (ages: 23, 21, 19, 13)

We love happy crew and guests!
