Dear fellow Europeans
On the day we have declared Bonkers Boris as PM, I need to do something to lighten the mood.
Thank you everyone for your massive thumbs up on Sardinia. Now it is up to us to meet the expectations.
In the next 2 days I will be starting the boat selection process in the reverse order of winning as we have all agreed, but with a minor exception. As agreed with Werner and because we are both not eligible to be Commodore next year, we have decided the 8 eligible skippers will have the identical (well approximately) Bavaria 51’s and we will have the other two. Its not all bad however for Werner and I, as we have managed to secure two Dufour 51’s instead of the Bavaria 46’s. So a 10 boat fleet of 51’s awaits us in Cagliari.
The final details of all 10 boats are:
All the boats come at the same discounted rate at Euros 2,796 + expenses.
4 double + 1 bunk bed cabins, 3 WC/showers
Expenses (payable at the base):
Final Cleaning €160 per boat
Outboard engine: €100 per week (if requested)
Wi-fi on board: €40 for a week ( until 7 GB)
Spy/Gennaker: €200 per week (TBC if available but believe they are)
Transfer Service (if requested)
Moorings in ports and anchorages
Food and beverage: (initial provisioning can be organized, charge would be 15% on the supermarket receipt)
Bed Linen: €17 per person – 1 Pillowcase, 2 sheets, 2 towels – (if requested)
Security deposit: Euros 2,500 per boat….or
Damage Waiver Option: Euros 500 non-refundable with Euros 1,000 refundable deposit.
I will start the process in the next email, starting with Dirk.
I will then pass the completed list onto the charterer with the email contacts for the contracts to be organised.
