Fowey, UK to Tenerife,   Nov 2000

Dear Tony and Fleur,
I have recently returned from "the most amazing trip in the world" (to coin a popular ships' "in" saying) and have just about regained my land legs, if not yet my sense of time.
I want to thank you for making it possible for me to take an active part in sailing such a beautiful ship and with such a special group of officers and crew - they are a credit to you (and of course their parents!). I had previously thought such adventures were for those in their 20's not those in their 50's and over!

There is not a moment of the voyage I would have missed - from the gales across the Bay of Biscay, the sea-sickness, the fear of getting over the Futtock shrouds, the fatigue brought on by the watch system, to the delights of clambering around in the rigging and furling the sails, the sight of the wind in the sails, the pilot whales and dolphins, the changing moods of the sea and the night skies, the sense of freedom, the people.......... I could get carried away here but I'm sure you've already heard a great many similar eulogies about experiences on Søren. Suffice it to say - it was a wonderful experience that I look forward to repeating. Incidentally, the adventures of the intrepid voyage crew did not end in the port of Tenerife............but that's another story!

I had hoped to rejoin Søren at Easter Island, along with my cabin mate, but family issues have somewhat messed up my sailing plans!! Looks as if the passage from either from Vanuatu or New Caledonia would be the most feasible.. Do you still have spaces on either of these ?

Many thanks again for the privilege of sailing with the Søren Larsen and her crew - it was
amazing.

Best wishes,
Margaret L. Gardiner

Good morning,

Now that I have joined this world wide web it was great to see that the cause of the most memorable holiday I have ever had is sailing the web. Even although it was 6 years ago the memories are still fresh and looking arround your site brought it all back. I hope to rejoin the ship in 2002 for several legs this time, that is the plan and the thought that keeps me going through this awful weather. I got your Christmas card today after it was forwarded to me. Fair winds to you all and all the best for the new year,

Regards,

Rupert Armes
