Andy Green - Navigator, TP52 GWEILO

A gruelling upwind passage of some 2000 nautical miles from Sydney to Nadi, Fiji. Thank you to Larry and Simone for getting Archer and I there safely. The learning curve was steep and the information you shared will be invaluable. That passage was one of the toughest things I’ve done.

Daniel Cowan, Outremer 51 ARCHER

Hi Larry and Simone, 
I just wanted to say how pleased and grateful we are to both of you for making the trip to Phuket and bringing Omni back to Darwin.  I think you have both done an outstanding job with a minimum of fuss in sometimes trying circumstances. A big thank you from all of us and our friends and family who now have the opportunity to enjoy this fantastic boat you have delivered to us.
