TESTIMONIALS
Once again we would like to thank you for organizing a fantastic event. We are so glad to have taken part. Especially we would like to thank Lyall, Nick and Andy who did a superb job throughout. We really enjoyed the few days in Bermuda and have promised ourselves to return there before too long.
Chris & Nirit Slaney, sy Passepartout
Thank you for a fantastic event. It was the first time we partook in an ARC event and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We would particularly like to complement World Cruising on the team they had in place at Nanny Cay, Bermuda and the Azores. Lyall, Kieran and Nick were exceptionally professional, unbelievably pleasant despite having numerous yachts demanding various things from them. They always had a smile and were always willing to help irrespective of the time of day or weather conditions - which we can personally vouch for following our arrival into Horta.
Brian and Loretto Linehan, sy Asteroid 2012
