Thank you Charly and Carolina for a wonderful vacation. We had such good fun sailing with the both of you. We loved snorkeling on the reef at Bitter End, seeing sharks and turtles. Thank you for introducing us o Virgin Gorda – we loved exploring it. We had a great time playing poker and perhaps our favorite night was Argentina BBQ with songs and laughter! Too bad Manchester United didn’t win. Maybe next time. Thank you Thank you for everything! I think my Spanish got a little better no? Adios Gracias Hasta Luego.

The Margulis
Dear Carolina & Charly,
Thank you both for an amazing week. You really know how to make one feel at home and so welcome. We will always remember our first wedding anniversary and Caleb’s first sail. Thank you for all your hard work and making us feel so special!
Best wishes,
The Margulis

Jeanne and Jason
Thank you so much for the best, and presumably only, honeymoon cruise of our lives!
The amenities, the food, your friendliness, the fantastic locations, the snorkeling trips and local tours, and the gift of seeing Charly dance like Michael Jackson with Jason were all muy muy muy bueno!
We have had such a wonderful time sailing with you, and we wish you clear skies and perfect breezes o see you safely down to Venezuela and your fabulous life adventures beyond!
Come see us in California on your big RV trip of the USA (or anytime!)
Love,
Jeanne and Jason
Jessica and Jim
To capture a moment in time is an extremely difficult task. Cameras and camcorders can do no justice. It takes special people to take those moments and make them real. You are those special people. I cannot think of any other people or way that could have made our honeymoon as special as it was. We will never forget this week or the two of you for the rest of our lives. We thank you from th bottom of our hearts for capturing this moment in time for us. We are glad to call you friends. Thank you for everything.

The Hunsakers
Dear Charly and Carolina,
We had such a wonderful time on this cruise with both of you through the BVI! We really enjoyed your company, your hospitality, your cooking, and especially your friendship. Brooke and Ben had the trip of a lifetime with you and we are sure they will never forget the treasure hunt, football on the beach, sandcastles and, how can we forget, the game Set! They felt so special by both of you and we appreciate your time with them!
From one pirate family to another, we look forward to sharing the waters with you again! AARGH!

Dear Charly and Carallina,

I really enjoyed the cruise you gave my family and I loved the treasure hunt it was so much fun! When I get home I am going to put together the fish puzzle. (I may need a little help because I’m not good, but it will help me get better.) The turtle made out of shells is going to go on my dressure where everyone can see it. Your guys cooking is the best! It tasted like a restruant. I loved your hospittallity. I liked playing with you on the beach. I liked the pirate flag cerimony with the swords, eye patches, and the telescope. It was so instering to watch the baracota eat with his big teeth. I will remember this for the rest of my life.
From,
Brooke

Dear Charly and Carolina,
We came wih few expectations, just a hope to relax and enjoy the sun and water… What a wonderful, magical time this has been. You are two unique spirits, and sharing yourselves, your love of life, your beautiful sailboat and home with us has been such a pleasure. The past two days have been fantastic- what a change from the crazy day before (travel!) We hope to keep you in our lives and be able to share time again with you. We would love to have you come and see Virginia and Chesapeake Bay (and oysters and crabs). Thanks again for everything-
