Hi Ruth, Thanks for being so flexible with the rental dates as we could only do 5 days. Also we loved the boat and the way it handles. You really feel like you are flying along even when you are only at 6 knots! We also found the back platform very useful and it makes the boat feel bigger… Its the first time we have sailed in the Ionian and we loved it, especially the quieter areas, so will be back to explore more, possibly in Sept. The equipment in general was great, and in good order. Denise said to let you know that the towels were lovely…! The support we received from everyone was first class. All the best regards, John.
