Dear Jeff,

I thought I would hold off on responding until Ray and Sandra had been back to Adelaide for the final commissioning of Horopito. That happened last weekend and I am delighted with result.

I’m looking forward to learning more about the J/111 over the coming months as we work up to racing mode. Even after our first couple of sails it’s apparent to me that this is a very well thought out package that will inspire confidence and reward crew input.

Your brand is very well represented in Australia by Ray and Sandra. They have been totally professional from the first time I made contact with them through to handing the boat over last Sunday. This even extended to a follow up email Monday to my 13 year old son explaining how ball and pin bearings work/differ. Their service, combined with a terrific yacht, has made this the best transaction I have been involved in for a long time. I suspect we’ll be proud members of the J family for a long time to come.

If you ever do get to South Australia I’d be very happy to take you for a sail on Horopito.

Kind regards

Mark
