We went to St Kilda, it involved 3 passages.   Rob did his best for us both going out and the first leg back for what must have been a very tiring day for him ending 0100. St Kilda was very interesting. Generally, we were looked after very well indeed by all four crew members who showed amazing flexibility in being quite happy to take on any job that needed doing. Rob must be a very good leader I think! The food was superb, wildlife commentaries so conscientiously delivered, and Craig particularly demonstrated such thoughtfulness and patience. I did so much too enjoy chatting to Rob in the wheelhouse about diving generally and of course the SBS and Royal Marines. So I think you and Rob, Emma, run a brilliant cruise. What a pity you are so far from Salisbury Best wishes, Rupert
