Just wanted to drop a line and let you know the ‘sail away’ on Sunday evening was delightful! We were on the Appledore IV and the crew was wonderful – it was a very pleasant evening! Thanks again.

Great learning experience as usual. All volunteers were outstanding and students loved them. They were also very knowledgeable.
