this note of thanks is a little tardy so apologies.

As a business just want to say you guys look after your customers and everything was well thought out and very well planned.

Food always excellent, can't wait for the Sailcork Cookbook, I am sure its an art planning food in a challenging environment.

The training was exceptional, from theory classes to the practical side, for me it's amazing you can take someone with no knowledge and no confidence, put them through a program and give them them the required knowledge, skills and  confidence to sail.

..... and in doing so find that difficult balance between a social activity that also requires vigilance safety and security.

I have done many courses (work and pleasure) I can honestly say I learned the most and at so many levels from Sailcork, we are the better for your long and valuable service in Cork.

best regards,
