Hi Rob, Brett and Janet;
Its not a problem to write a note of thanks when your expectations have been so far exceeded. As was the case in my charter of ‘Tangaroa’ in march. Thank you.
Specifically, the boat had a really complete and orderly kit – rarely the case with a charter. Every nook and cranny was immaculately clean when we boarded – also a pleasant surprise. Though we were an hour late at the end of the day when we did arrive, we got a thorough, documented, pleasant, knowledgeable and un-hurried briefing from Brett. You allowed us to spend the first night at the dock without incurring a big charge. In our trip, the yacht sailed better and closer than I had expected, and everything worked. We found documentation orderly and complete – like when we had to figure out how to enable propane flow, or change water tanks. And there was no ‘nannying’ – no requirement for us to report each evening’s anchorage: we were free and blissfully out of touch.
I have chartered bareboat yachts elsewhere in New Zealand, in the Caribbean, in Australia. But in all these aspects of an enjoyable adventure that I reference here your Charterlink operation in Auckland was superior. Even the winds cooperated on our voyage, blowing us southwest and home from Kawau when our time was up.
So thanks for all that. Was a great adventure and your operation was key. Hope to schedule another one next season.
Kind regards; Jay S
