Report to the broker

We had a blast.

First off, the boat fit us very well. I think if we had another couple along for the ride, it would have been a little cramped. The boat is steady which is great for those among us who tend to get a little sea sick. The quarters below were very comfortable and I certainly didn't have a problem sleeping, once I got used to the generator hum. Hot water and water pressure were abundant.

The crew was excellent and always had a smile on their faces. They did their best to make our trip enjoyable and exciting. Allison and Lisa's cooking was excellent and they were aware of our dietary quirks and made sure we got the correct plate with the right food on it. We ate fresh food all the time and Allison's attention to eating healthy was spot on. Even though we ate like kings and queens, I don't think I gained an excessive amount of weight. Yoga in the morning with Allison was a great feature and addition to the trip. Stretching like that is a great way to start the morning and I learned I should do it more often.

Scott is an excellent captain. Always making sure we were comfortable and constantly worked on the boat to make sure we weren't inconvenienced by a downed piece of equipment or system. His knowledge of the seas was educational and endless. He was always open to showing us where we were going and let us "play" with his navigation system. He always made sure we were safe and happy. Scott also let us get on the helm during some transits and told us he was glad to have people on board that knew how to steer a boat.

Elliot was certainly eye candy for the women and a lot of fun to be with . . . . his knowledge of fish and the ocean was an addition to our overall experience. He snorkeled with us and pointed out fish and aquatic life we might have missed. He did his best to catch fish all the time as Anne loves to fish. We eventually caught some, towards the end, and it was fun and exciting. The call "fish on" would get us all up and heading towards the stern to see what we had on the hook!

Lisa certainly added to the mix of the crew and she made sure all the cabins were made up promptly in the morning and that the "heads" were spotless. She was a good addition to the crew and her cooking and help to Allison was excellent.

We all traded contact information so we can all get together in Antigua or Newport when they show up there sometime this summer.

We will all have many fond memories of the places we visited and the days we spent on Orion.

Thanks for your help with putting everything together and linking us up with a great boat and crew!

Cheers, Matt"

I'm told I have been spoiled on this trip. Having never been on any boat in the ocean I somehow started at the top. This trip has been the best trip of my life. You think you have an idea of how beautiful sailing is from the movies, but it doesn't even come close. My highlights are: Riding at the very front for hours trying to guess what the waves would do to the boat, snorkeling for the first time and having what felt like an out of body experience, yoga on the front deck with Allison, watching Elliot prance around trying to catch all types of sea creatures, Scott's amazing stories and watching "Erray Potta" with Molly.

You are all wonderful. Thank you for making my first experience inevitably my best.
Lindsey

After numerous sailing trips to the BVI's on mono hulls this is my FAVORITE boat tour! Wow, love the shower, my room, great food, yoga (Yay!) shark wrestling with Elliot and such nice people. Thanks for making our trip so perfect and memorable.
Jenny

Maybe 30 sails around the Caribbean, Med, Atlantic and this was by far the best ever. Best boat, best crew, and best boat mates - my family! And so many unexpected extras: Yoga, shark catching and tagging! Thank you Allison, Molly, Elliot and Scott for an unforgettable holiday.
Randy

Totally relaxing trip. The ship was great. The crew awesome and the food could not be beat.
Tom

I don't believe I've ever been so well taken care of on any trip. Love the spirit energy of each of the (crew). Allison - it would be fun to hang with her for months so I could learn more yoga, raw food and health and well-being in general. Scott, your attention to our safety was greatly appreciated. Elliot, your love of fishing & nature in general was fun to watch. Good luck with your lion fish project. Molly, holy cow girl! You've learned your passion well. Wonder how much I gained this week! Thanks to each of you for your special gifts and for sharing them.
Peace and love to all,
Sandi

Also from Sandi in a later email:

I dont feel like I properly thanked you for being such wonderful hosts on the most exquisite boat experience weve ever had. Your thoughtfulness and attention to detail really made for an exceptional experience.

I wasnt expecting such nutritious and delicious food on board and was thrilled with your recipes. Thank you so much for making gluten-free options for me. What a vacation!!!

Thank you also for the yoga sessions. I plan to get on line and order the books and yoga tapes that you recommended.

Thank you so much for EVERYTHING! I hope we can join you again one day.

Best wishes,
Sandi
