“Although failing to reach a mutual agreement about what was more awe-inspiring about our voyage on Lake Pepin with you; the exhibition of your skillful command of sailing while simultaneously instructing a rather “inept” crew of four, or your herculean display of patience while doing it. We did however, with alacrity reach an overwhelming agreement about this fact: Because of your generous offering of your time and sharing of your knowledge and skills we were the recipients of a thrilling and exciting introduction to sailing. Thank you so much for a most memorable excursion.”
