Customer Feedback

“What went well as a learning experience for me was that I was well and truly out of my comfort /control zone…which is what being at sea is often like   –  thank you for making it safe enough for me to explore those limits/boundaries and give me the confidence to test them more in the coming months.” – Andrea
