Charter Yacht Corus: Guest comments

We would like to share comments from a lovely Christmas card that Bill & Ann of the charter yacht Corus received this year from past clients.

Dear Bill & Ann,

So,  Kay and I are sitting here on Christmas morning, remembering last Christmas...  We had just decided to try a sailing adventure.  We had spent time in the Carribbean in the past, and looked forward a different perspective... and that is where an adventure with Bill & Ann was set in motion!

As we reflect back to our adventure we remember the fantastic gourmet cooking we became accustomed to in one short week.  How in the world do those meals come from below deck??  As we would sip on a cocktail, expertly mixed, and chewing on another hors d'overy, smelling something wonderful, we would find ourselves waiting to see Bill's head pop out from below to share the menu with us and simply ask what kind of wine would we want to compliment the meal, red or white?? Not to short change the morning spread along with the beautiful lunches either...

It was great to have such patient people to spend the week with!  As we shared with you guys, Kay is not a swimmer, but the floaty worked great, allowing her the chance to see the underwater world.  The snorkeling as usual was great!

It seemed that every time we went ashore, Bill would share some information about the area and hook us up with a cabby or other local to get us around.  Many of the locals would have good things to say about you also.  (The cabby you arranged for us the last day in Road Town told us he drove the honeymoon cab!! Very interesting stories...)

Finally, your boat, Corus, was more then we expected.  Our cabin was great, (did we mention the food?) the sailing was fun, and the day you guys arranged for the whale to pop up was something!!

Wishing you health, happiness and a very Merry Christmas!!

Mark & Kay,  Milwaukee, Wisconsin
