Nenne Description

The finest cruising experience yet imagined, NENNE (a Swedish name which means strong and brave like a lion), elevates the enjoyment of a floating holiday to new heights. A Victoria 67, newly built and launched in 2017, she´s the newest addition to Fountaine Pajot´s Flagship fleet, their top-of-the-line luxury cruising cats. She´s sleek, elegant, and extremely spacious with an overall length of 67 feet and beam of 31 feet; truly, the ultimate in cruising comfort.

The popular flybridge concept has been expanded on this yacht to a state nothing short of magnificence. It is accessed from the cockpit with stairs on both sides that are highly secure. The 2-person carbon fibre helm, offset to starboard, provides the captain excellent visibility and easy access to winches, sheets, sails and traveler to ease the work of sailing. For guests aboard who have come to relax, the seating area is incredibly comfortable with benches, side tables, a relaxing sofa, and the convenience of a refrigerator and sink. The rise & fall tables can also be used for dining, making this a highly usable area not usually found on an FP 67. A large bimini provides an area of escape from the sun for those who want some shade and there is integrated lighting for evening cocktails. Additional side and rear covers can be used to block the wind for dining if desired, and of course, the large double lounge cushion for sun bathing make this a highly desirable space for the ultimate in relaxation, all enjoyed with awesome views of the surrounding scenery.

The large aft deck is shaded by the flybridge overhead and provides additional comfortable lounging spaces, as well as an elegant setting for formal dining. Two large sumptuous pads are optimal for relaxing. A projector and large cinema screen can be viewed inside from the cockpit or saloon.

Step into the saloon which features urban chic decor with gorgeous leather upholstery, and lots of space for comfortable entertaining in air-conditioned comfort if so desired. The large relaxing seating area has an electric rise and fall coffee / dining table providing an additional option. The open galley is equipped with state of the art appliances, fine china, and extensive glassware. There is an extra chart plotter and helm station at the chart table from where the boat can be steered.

Accommodation for 10 guests in 5 cabins which are all en-suite: 1 King, 3 Queens, and 1 Twin which can be configured to a King upon request. Each cabin has independent A/C, Sony and Apple flatscreen LED TV with access to onboard server film library with over 500 films, Bose hifi music system, high quality bed linens and and towel sets including nice thick NENNE-branded beach towels. The very large primary cabin has a desk/dressing table and a comfortable couch.

NENNE is equipped with a large array of water toys including, snorkel gear, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, wakeboard, adult and children´s waterskis, a range of towable inflatables, plus a Yamaha 70hp tender for towing. For guests interested in scuba diving, you won´t find a better choice than NENNE as she offers a premium dive experience with a complete assortment of top-of-the-line equipment, an onboard dive compressor. (See specs for details.) Chef Ellie Mae is a licensed PADI Dive Instructor and loves to share her passion for diving and favorite local dive spots with guests.

NENNE´s crew of three is a dynamic and welcoming team that instantly helps you feel relaxed and right at home. Their friendly personalities, excellent hosting skills, and a vibrant zest for life promise to make your vacation an unforgettable experience. Between them, they also speak several languages -
English, Dutch, German, Portuguese, French, Spanish, and Italian.

TIM MAUER - Captain

I was born in Wisconsin and grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan. Summers were short, so I took full advantage of living on the water canoeing, kayaking, and learning to sail Hobie Cats on the local rivers and lakes. Upon graduating from high school, I attended Saint Louis University where I earned a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology. I paid my way through college working as a phlebotomist and a lab technician.
Shortly after graduation, I was presented with an opportunity that changed the direction of my career. I left the medical field to run events for an experiential marketing company. I worked with Fortune 100 companies developing integrated marketing programs that cut through the competitive clutter.

Throughout the years I moved up the ranks, eventually managing offices on three different continents as the CEO of Relay Worldwide, a Publicis Groupe company. I helped build a full-service experiential and sponsorship agency focused on innovation and proprietary information management systems.

After 25 years in the corporate world, I happily adjusted my course. Now, as the new Captain of NENNE, I am privileged to do what I love most, cruising in the islands, with the one I love most, Steph, my wife and first mate of 18 years.

Over the last 6 years, we have traveled over 15000 NM miles together, including a fabulous trip from Panama to Tahiti, via the Galapagos and Tuamotu islands in the Pacific. We´ve also enjoyed sailing in the Mediterranean in Greece, Croatia, and Montenegro, as well as extensively in the beautiful islands of the Bahamas.

STEPHANY MAUER - Stewardess/First Mate

My childhood years were spent growing up on the shores of Brazil, the Canary Islands, and the US and UK. It was on the ocean and its beaches where I learned to swim, make new friends, learn new languages, and sail. Because of the diversity of my upbringing, I grew up loving different cultures, food, music, and experiences. I especially enjoy hosting people from all over the world, sharing knowledge, and exchanging stories. I am proficient in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and English.

Eventually, my family settled down in Texas, where I finished high school and attended college. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts, I accepted the most awesome job at an event marketing company, designing and implementing promotions and traveling throughout the country. The job was demanding but allowed me to use both my operational and creative skills. It reignited my desire to travel and see the world even more. During this timeframe, I met my husband, Tim, who had the same desire for adventure!

Sailing throughout the Caribbean with Tim has afforded us the opportunity to explore slowly. We really take in our surroundings. Our favorite things to do onshore are to make new friends and experience the local culture. We sample regional cuisine at recommended restaurants and shop at local markets. We enjoy exploring the beaches, reefs, towns, and trails in order to share our knowledge with our guests aboard NENNE.

CHEF ELLIE MAE BYAS:

Ellie Mae Byas has an infectious smile, a subtle sense of humor, and a lengthy list of impressive accomplishments. She was born and educated in Amsterdam, Netherlands, but is truly a citizen of the world. She is certified as a P.A.D.I Open Water Scuba instructor. She has taught scuba at Club Meds, Robinson Clubs, in the Maldives, managed a dive center in Rovinj, Croatia, and owned a dive center in Mallorca. She has R.Y.A Certification Yachtmaster Offshore and has circumnavigated the globe in her own yacht, Bon Bini. With a little coaxing, guests aboard can persuade Ellie into recounting some amazing sea stories.

Ellie has been a charter yacht chef for more than a decade. Although she specializes in recipes with fresh seafood and local ingredients, having lived all over the world she has a sophisticated repertoire. Of course, her menu is based on guest preferences. So, whether the mood dictates a gourmet menu paired with fine wine or sandwiches with a hot cup of Grenada chocolate, guests are never disappointed. Even those on special diets.

Ellie´s hobbies are spearfishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, and sailing. She also had a small cottage industry smoking fish. Provided there´s time away from the galley, she welcomes guests to join her in any activities of interest. And she can explain things to almost everyone in a way they can understand it, because she is fluent in English, Dutch, German and French and conversational Spanish.

Nenne Guest Reviews

1-9 May 2022, in th USVI´s

We are home safe and sound from our Nenne charter. It was a wonderful trip for our family. I was so relieved when we finally got there! The kids were amazed by the experience. They had no idea what to expect and were impressed.

Tim, Steph and Ellie were absolutely delightful! They are just great people! Super accommodating, fun to talk too, food was good and abundant. They are very skilled operators, passionate about their work and Nenne! We were in great hands! We have made lifetime friends again!

In the end, things worked out and we all had a wonderful time! Five stars for Nenne!

Thank you for all of your help. I know this charter required a lot of time. I appreciate all you did to help keep things together!

Stay in touch!

To the “Dream Team” of Nenne,
Signing this journal fills me (us) with mixed emotions…those that aren’t quite ready for our week aboard Nenne in the USVI to end, and those that will forever shine brightly in my (our) hears and minds of the treasured togetherness our family shared on tis sailing adventure. Scott and I and our 4 (now adult) kids have been fortunate to have experienced travel abroad many sailing vessels throughout the world and throughout many years, yet our time aboard Nenne (FINALLY after adventure #7) exceeded all expectations. Tim, Steph and Ellie are absolute gems whose positivity, friendliness, attention to detail of their roles, outstanding service and joyful willingness to go “above and beyond” revived our spirits and filled our days/nights with blissful memories. THANK YOU, THANK YOU for this treasured time for our now family of 8, with out best wishes to the 3 of you for happy sails always!
Cheers!
The “H” Group

23-30 March 2022 - USVI -

Dear Tim, Steph and Ellie,
Thank you for a trip of a lifetime! This was the perfect post-covid experience and we couldn’t imagine a more wonderful group of hosts to share it with. The boat is beautiful, our activities so much fun, and the service 5 Star!
Ellie, we have relished every meal and dive. Thank you for your thoughtful care.
Steph, life won’t be the same without your 5:00 pm sundowners.
Tim, you made everyday fun and scenic, and we all loved learning about sailing and your excellent stories.
All in all, this week aboard the Nenne was exactly what the spirit needed. I hope it’s just not the first time we sail with you.
A thousand thanks!
Laura & Tripp

My sentiments exactly! Water sports and view are my take home memories.
Pam

5 stars and 5 hearts! The Best!

Much love and success to you!
Nancy & Craig

Dear Tim, Steph & Ellie,
What a delightful way to spend a week. So happy your team came together on this boat. Boats are boats (and of course the Nenne is beautiful) but the crew makes the experience! You all went the extra mile(s) to make sure everyone felt pampered, and their needs were met. As my phone message says, “Thank you and stay in touch”. Let us know when you get your FB page up and running.
Love from us all!

13-20 March 2022 - Retirement Charter in the USVI´s

Tim, Steph & Ellie,
This was so much fun, so relaxing, so entertaining. This crew is the best! You took such amazing care of us. Food was absolutely fabulous, we love learning about boats, sailing and your interesting lives. Could have done ok with one less painkiller…
John

Tim, Steph & Ellie,
You made this outing “the best” catamaran experience I’ve ever had. I’ve been fortunate to travel the world and I can honestly say your service outperformed all the hospitality venues I have had the pleasure to be in. It was “all about our group” every step of the way. We felt like royalty. Thank you for your kindness and being you!
Kevin

Thank you, thank you, thank you Steph, Ellie and Tim for your wonderful hospitality. Fabulous and memorable experience – we couldn’t have done it without you!
Martin

Nenne Team,
When I envisioned this retirement celebration, I had high expectations. You gave us an experience far beyond. Thank you Tim, Steph and Ellie for such a fabulous week.
Jerr

Tim, Steph & Ellie,
Thank you for a wonderful week, you exceeded especially in service, food, boat and charter. It will be a trip I will never forget. I hope our paths meet again.
All the best,

New Year´s Charter - 28 December 2021 - 4th January 2022

Dear Tim, Steph & Ellie:
What an amazing week! Thank you so much for the kindness, fun and great food. We all really appreciated your flexibility and hospitality. What a wonderful time!! Thank you so much!
Bret, Serena, Rose, Sam, Sarah, Alex & Kellar

Hi!!
You guys are the best people in the world. I am so thankful I met all of you! Please stay in touch.
Thank you!!
Sarah

As I boarded SC Nenne, I felt an anxious excitement at the week ahead. Sailing out of the harbor, I then felt the onset of a dreadful foreboding as we began to crash over the waves. It was, of course, a beautiful sunny day, no on could complain about the scenery as well. However, I now know that I would be experiencing the week from hell, unable to keep food down nor enjoy the days ahead on the swells! Fast forward – I could not have been more wrong about what I was to experience! THANK GOODNESS my medicines worked and now I know that I cannot only survive, but thrive day to day on the VI Sea. I also did not expect to feel the way I do about Tim, Steph and Ellie. I am used to very superficial interaction on vacations, but that was exactly NOT what this was. I feel myself earnestly wondering how Tim’s GB Packers will be faring during their next key encounters, and wondering while Steph make up her next set of drink concoctions for new clients’ happy hour. Will her mind be drifting to her days of street parties, going primal with oil-blackened skin and yet this time, remembering to apply liberally the Vaseline to protect her from absorbing the toxins as well as allow easy removal of said oil??!! LOL.
Perhaps Ellie will catch a wild hair and solo sail to her past on the Suez Canal, facing pirates with a vengeance and sweet taste of revenge?!!
No one knows exactly what we will all make of our futures. Mine, as well as Bret’s will NOT involve leagues of new people assuming we introverts are able to avoid it. LOL. However, I sincerely hold the memories of this week with you all deeply and near my heart and I find myself hoping that perhaps one day our paths shall cross again.
May the sun continue to shine on you. May the fruitful winds carry you to new adventures and friends. We can only hope that a small glimpse of us shall remain with you, smiling in your mind’s eye as memories dear.
Till we meet again!
Serena

What a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday our family of 10 had!! We can’t thank you three enough…from age 11 to 54 all had a great time. The three of you are fun, professional, patient and attentive. We have chartered for 10 years and, personally, this year’s trip was by far my favorite. I will forever hold memories made on Nenne 2021 in my heard.
Thank you from the ´D´ Family

I had such an amazing time and had so much fun getting to know you guys! Best crew ever!
Love Sarah

Tim, Steph & Ellie,

The “A” Family

13-20 November 2021 - USVI - Fantastic Trip!!

Captain Tim, First Mate Steph & Ellie (chef, diver, anchor, et al),
What a wonderful experience to be under your car for this past week. I use that work “care” as it encompasses the service, attentiveness, kindness, patience, resourcefulness, etc. that come from people who care and are “others” focused. In short, we had a spectacular vacation aboard the Nenne and will never forget the week that you put together for us. We have deepened existing friendships, made new live long friends and met and fell in love with the crew.
Each of you are so very special and you know your roles and work so well as a team.
Here’s to finding the dingy!
Doug

Dear Tim, Steph & Ellie,
This was one of the best trips we have ever experienced. You all took such good care of us, so attentive to our every need. We are so grateful not only to try something new (as we never did a boat trip before) but to have all of you to add to our experience. The food was amazing, and you all just made this such a fun and relaxing time, which we all needed. We hope one day to take another trip with you.
Love Lisa & Eric

Dear Ellie, Steph & Tim (I wanted to change up the order),
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! What an incredible week of sun, laughter, great friends and NEW friends. The 3 of you were so integral in the success of this vacation. We will be talking about this trip your kindness, thoughtfulness & enthusiasm for adventure for years to come. We truly couldn’t have hoped for more. Until we see you all again, cheers to safe journeys across the seas.
With love, Bonnie

Tim, Steph & Ellie,
Hard to top the previous accolades….what a fantastic trip! Tremendous and tireless effort on your part to make this vacation so special for all of us. I hope you have a wonderful skiing season coming up, we are jealous of the next guests and the experience that awaits them!
Best, Keith

13-20 November 2021 - USVI - Fantastic Trip!!

Dear Steph & Tim,
To say this week exceeded our wildest expectations is an understatement. We had the most fabulous time on the Nenne….made new friends that will surely become lifelong. The two of you and Ellie made this trip unforgettable. We truly loved every second and all of your special touches. See you at our house in Jupiter.
Thank you!
Marcy & Dan

Dar Steph, Tim & Ellie,
WOW! Where do I begin? How do I express my thanksgiving? I have never experienced this level of personal attention and service! You know what I need before I do. You see the little things, cold water, folded laundry, dry towels, made beds, as a mom to 4 boys these are things I do daily, but I haven’t ever had someone take care of me. Probably my mom, but that was so long ago I don’t remember.
Ellie – Eric expressed it best – “Never in all my life have I had 3 healthy, delicious meals served consistently day after day”. The only B meal we ate was the night we ate ashore! You are a very talented chef and we all appreciate the hours of work dedicated to feeding us. The USVI is a beautiful place to sail. Thank you for sailing us around these beautiful islands. Thank you for making Nenne a home. Because of your expertise in personal service and A+ 5 star hospitality, you have created an environment where 6 strangers met and became life long friends! Bonnie & Keith brought us here and you 3 have given the 8 of us a vacation to TOP all vacations. I thank God we met!!
Here is to 15 more fabulous charters!!
Love Kato

Here´s a selection of previous guest comments with Tim and Steph on their previous catamaran.

Thank you!”

“The memories will be endless but the pleasure was all ours to be with you. Everything about the trip was more than we imagined. The entire crew is some of the best people we have ever met. We would sail anywhere with you. Tim made my nervous wife comfortable which is not easy. Steph could never do enough for us which was always be remembered. Thanks for being such great hosts, sailors and friends.
Happy Birthday Steph!!!”
— Tom S (Massachusetts)

“Thank you for the endless memories; the best vacation ever! We loved every minute of our week because of your hospitality and thoughtfulness. Please keep in touch…The best type of ships are friendships.
Smooth sailing”
— Tracy S (Massachusetts)

“From the moment we stepped aboard Endless Pleasure, you made us all feel very welcome and at home. We know it was a bit more tricky to do a tandem and we really, really appreciate your flexibility and willingness to accommodate us. We had so much fun sailing with you, snorkeling with you, and even tubing with you. You always seemed to find the perfect spot for us to spend the night.
It was great to meet you!! xX”
— Erika and Andrew (United Kingdom)

“Words cannot express the amazing experience you’ve given us this week.
Thank you for opening up your home and lives to us. Every day you went above and beyond to show us incredible places and explore islands that look too beautiful to be real.
Your hard work and dedication to your guests are evident from start to finish. Even when lugging my oversized suitcase. :)
Thank you for everything. Your hospitality will never be forgotten and I hope to visit again soon. Or come to STL and we can take you out and you can relax!
Thanks for everything!”

“You two ROCK!
So many inspirations I take away from this experience. I can’t wait to see you again soon.”
— PJ D (St. Louis)

“What an amazing week! Thank you for sharing “your home” with us. Your boat is perfectly set up and we never wanted for anything. From the minute we stepped on the boat, you made us feel welcome and opened your arms to make sure we had everything we needed. You took us to so many beautiful places in the BVI and made sure we found a few good places for cocktails. :) This is a trip we will not forget and will make plans to return again soon.
Thanks for your incredible hospitality,”
— Ann and Dave P (Kansas)

“What a hoot! You two are the best…bet Capt. and 1st Mate, the best company and best friend. You welcomed us with open arms into your home. You have a great operation and you deliver it with the care and consideration befitting of how your true nature is…just the nicest of people in the nicest of settings. I’ll be back many times my friend cause…
We’re wasting’ away in Mike OLearyville
Searching for that last Jameson shot
Some people say that there’s a squirrel to blame
But I know it’s Tim and Steph’s fault!
So long for just a while.”
— Michael O (St. Louis)

“You guys are very special, your warmth, openness, generous approach to each day is a pleasure to share. You opened a crack in the window on a different life at sea. We look forward to staying in touch. Thanks for everything.
— Bob, Beth, Katie & Jack D.(California

The end of the charter came too quick, we felt that we were just getting into a rhythm and could have spent many more days with Tim and Steph. We are interested in staying in touch with them and following their adventures and hope that our paths cross again.”

“A review of our trip written to the broker:

Hi Katja,

I have been so busy since I got home. But I wanted to write a quick note to tell you that we had a fantastic time, it was the best charter we have been on so far. The reasons for that are simple: the crew made it great!
I want to tell you that Tim and Stephany were wonderful people. We felt very pampered, they are extremely professional, competent and overall caring people. They gave us whatever we asked for, if we wanted a certain spot, or a certain activity they made it happen. Stephany was always thoughtful, handing us ice water (especially good for the kids because they forget to hydrate), handing us towels, hanging our wet items, asking us what we needed, handing us our snorkel equipment, etc. Tim was wonderful with the kids, teaching sailing, fishing with James, bringing the kids tubing, bringing us snorkeling whenever we wanted. Tim prepared fresh tuna that James caught, took photos of us jumping, just overall friendly, accommodating, and fun. What lovely people! We would like to charter with them again.

It was a really good fit. I really think this crew is great for families with kids. We are so happy that we went with them for this charter, definitely worth it to see the Grenadines in this way. I also felt that they knew the area well and this made us feel safe and comfortable. Everything on the boat worked well, even the dinghy. We have had other charters where the dinghy did not work and that was terrible for us. Tim and Steph take very good care of the boat and it shows, all was in good working order, clean and comfortable.

I would like to write something more eloquent as a review for them but I just wanted to get this off to you so you know how it went.

Sincerely,
— Danielle, Michael, James and Michelle (Indiana)

“What an amazing week we have had with you both. Spectacular views, amazing food, but most important? The company. We have loved the time with you this week. Thank you for your generosity and spirit this week.
Love ya and cannot wait until next time!”
— Chris and Carole H (Georgia)

“We cannot thank you enough for such an unbelievable vacation. We had a tough event with our 13 yr old boy going into surgery in Atlanta and you accommodated so we could have cell coverage and remain calm. Awesome hosts and boat. We will be back to share this wonderful experience with our children.
God Bless and Lots of Love,”
— Tom and Marcia T (Georgia)

“Obrigada pela semana incrível que passamos com voces. Inesquecivel!!!!! Nos divertimos muito e voltaremos em breve com os filhos. Se voces forem a Atlanta, saiba que “mi casa es sua casa.” Voces são sempre bem vindos.
So Alegria!
Sempre,”
— Marcia T (Georgia)

“What a fabulous time and boat! It was wonderful and we wish we could do it too! It was really lovely to get to know you. I truly hope that we will all be able to do this again. Each of us has “fantasies” about how we can come back with other friends and family.
Thank you for being so good to us and being the rest of our party. I wish we could do this many times over.
Much love and success to you both,”
— Mimi (Ohio)

“Hello Stephany and Tim! We think of our time with you both and are so appreciative to have had the wonderful time and experiences that you allowed! We hope you are doing well.”
— Paul and Brenda K (Wisconsin)

“Endless Pleasure lived up to its name. My husband and I joined Tim and Steph along with 4 other friends on our first-ever sail. Endless Pleasure proved to be the perfect ship, and Tim and Steph the perfect crew to experience the adventure of sailing the ocean in all its blue glory.

There’s something to be said about starting each day with nothing but a swimsuit and a plunge into whatever water you are sailing that day. Then you take in the gorgeous sky, the happy sunshine, and enjoy the cruise with no care of phone, hair or what day it is.

Tim and Steph were gracious and warm, making sure everyone was relaxed and satisfied. The best part of the trip was liking it so much that now I can’t wait to leave again tomorrow for another sailing adventure.” I could go on and on, but thought I’d keep it short. I truly, unexpectedly, loved the trip and look forward to doing it again. We WILL be in touch.
So, happy adventures to you both. Miss you and can’t wait to see you both again.
Love and peace,”
— Tracy W (Wisconsin)

“Thank you for the wonderful experience of a lifetime that we will never forget. We hope to do it again in the next few months or years. Happy sailing and we will be in touch through out the year. Take care and safe travels.
Bon Voyage!
Best”
— Chris & April P (Ohio)

“We have decided that our stay on the Endless Pleasure can’t come to an end. It’s false advertising! We have taken the liberty of appointing ourselves as the newest members of your crew. We have donated all our possessions to charity and are ready for work. Should you need us. You’ll find us working hard on our tans over by the trampolines.
Thanks Again for bringing us into your slice of paradise, we’ve loved every minute.
DON’T LET THE PRESSURE END! HUGS & KISSES!
Respectfully,”
— Your New Recruits Rory & Kat (California)

“Thank you for the best hospitality, conversation, and endless/unique experience. We could have ever dreamed of. See you guys soon! We Love You! You made our last day the best!
xoxo ”

“A broker evaluation
Yacht ENDLESS PLEASURE Guests: the S******** Family March, 2016

How did you enjoy your cruising vacation?
On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being the highest) the entire vacation from start to finish was a 11++++++ ! I can’t imagine doing this cruise vacation with another crew! The boat was lovely, but the crew made our vacation. They were always willing to do whatever and certainly paid attention to our preference sheet regarding where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. They tried to accomplish all our “musts” within the parameter of our timing.

How would you describe your Captain and crew? Were they Courteous? Helpful? Friendly? Attentive? Knowledgeable?
Any positive adjective would describe this crew. Courteous, Helpful, Friendly, Attentive, Knowledgeable are only a few of the adjectives I would use. I happen to be nervous on boats but I always felt safe and in competent hands.

They went over the top to make our time one to remember.

What did you like most about the yacht? What did you like the least?
We liked everything! I think the crew made our vacation! A boat is a boat but the crew was what made our experience so special. At the end of our vacation, we all felt we had made lifelong friends. We hated saying goodbye.
— Tom, Tracy, Colby & Deane (Massachusetts)

“Thank you for sharing your home with all of us. We’ve been looking forward to this trip for months and I can honestly say you, the boat, the BVI exceeded all of our expectations. You’re all so good at making everyone feel comfortable and at home.
Highlights - the Endless Pleasure Spritzer, the chocolate cake!!, surfing, waterboarding, snorkeling, really every dessert. Thanks for catering to the food requirements. The bolognese pasta will go down in Connor’s history as maybe his favorite part of the trip.
We hope you get to to that trip around the world very soon and that we get to keep track of you along the way!! Fair Winds!
”— Jim, Kristine, Katherine, Connor, & Kenzie (Massachusetts)
