The sailing was magnificent. The cultural highlights were indeed that – the trip out on Vis (I’ve never towed 7 vampires before and never eaten such tasty octopus) and Stari Grad were real high points. The final party was lovely, I enjoyed the food. Any minor gripes pale however into insignificance against the general brilliance of the whole thing. It is a regular delight to sail alongside such a group, where friendship and good humour take precedence over the need to win at all costs. The balance of sailing to “free” time and the reactions to wind and weather were superbly judged to give, for me, the absolute optimum possible week of fun. Optimise the details by all means, but please don’t change too much.
I will be doing everything in my power to be there – wherever there may be – next year.
