And yes we will try to give it a GO.

I am a Mac owner since 1998 my Boat is "Ariane" and I am UKMOA member.
2 years ago, I created a small charter company that fortunately is being very successful (we are almost fully booked for this spring and summer). At the moment we have 4 Macs that we charter on the Douro River Valley Waterway.
Because we are also Mac Owners we really want to have some fun with our UKMOA friends.
The idea is very simple, get into an air-plane in October and we have 4 boats waiting for you.
Sail for a week, have fun and fly back to the UK.
This will be a non-profit initiative (we still have to calculate the cost per boat).
But for a start, we want to make things very clear, any profit will go to UKMOA on an advertising deal yet to establish.
For legal purposes this will be a normal charter deal with insurances, licenses, etc... (except for the price).
The idea is very simple each participant will individually charter a boat and participate with it in a UKMOA Rally.
We will try to make the price as low as possible.
We need to get definitive dates as soon as possible so please think about this and let us know by answering to this post.
1 - Are you interested ?
2 - How many days should it be (1 week ?)
3 - What dates exactly ?
4 - Questions ?
We believe that it will be an end of season to remember…
