Dear Cumberland Charter Yachts We’ve just returned from our our fifth sailing holiday in the Whitsundays and I want to congratulate you on the excellent service you provided. This is the second trip we’ve done with CCY and we’ll definitely be choosing you guys for the next one. Little things, like the daily countdown (yes, I looked at it every day!) and the fact that we could go straight from the plane at Hamilton Island to the yacht made a real difference. We booked Lady Faye this year, a magnificent Hanse 430 in immaculate condition. She had the performance and speed to keep the enthusiast happy (Dad) and the comfortable fitout meant the rest of the family were in love with her. For eleven days we got to dream that she was all ours. Every day was an adventure full of swimming, snorkeling, sailing and siestas. No electronic games for the kids and not once did I hear “I’m bored, there’s nothing to do” We had a visit from a Pilot whale and a minke whale. The pilot swam under the yacht and the minke launched itself right out of the water. What a thrill, and great memories for the kids. We enjoyed perfect weather and got to visit all our favorite spots: Border Island, Whitehaven, Maureens, Luncheon and Manta Ray Bays, Stonehaven and Narra Inlet. With a 14 year old daughter, two twelve year old boys and a five year old, it’s not easy finding a family holiday that keeps everyone happy. What’s more, mum and dad came home feeling rested and refreshed instead of welcoming the escape back to work. In short, our only regret was having to come home, and the whole family wants to know when we can go again. Thanks to all the staff at CCY for providing a great service. It was the perfect family holiday and we look forward to the next sailing adventure. Sincerely yours, The Rice FamilyAndrew - PORT MELBOURNE, VIC
