Many thanks for your email, and sorry it's taken me a few days to answer. Coming home from holiday with a bump and back to work!
We had a terrific time on our day sail with Peter, who is a very good skipper/teacher. We really enjoyed the chance to see the Volvo races as well. And your chorizo and chicken stew was wonderful!
Thank you for arranging the day sail - we had a great time.
