"Thank you so much for a lovely sail last week.  The Eclipse is
gorgeous, the food was delicious, the service and conversation
was lively and gracious.  I’m happy to say that when I asked all of
the children about their vacation in Newport, every one of them
said sailing was their favorite part (even the 4-year-old!)  I think
we adults agreed!
We will certainly be calling again next summer—and have
already raved about you to many folks who frequent Aquidneck
Island. Thank you for a lovely time!"   AT, Aug 2011

"We found your bottle on the
beach  between Montalivet
and Le Gurp in France.
Our position was 45°24'58"N, 1°8'28"W
in the departement Gironde.
We spent our Christmas holidays and
we were very keen to find your bottle.
The message was very difficult to read,
because water moved inside. So we
hope we have the right e-mail address!
We are a German family from Munich.
Best regards,
Johannes, Dagmar, Evelyn, Lisa"
It was amazing to learn that our message traveled securely
in a corked wine bottle for 18 months, for a distance of
3000 nautical miles (almost 3500 miles)
East across the Atlantic Ocean,
past the Sables d'Olonne Canyon,
into the Bay of Biscay
to rest along the Aquitaine Shelf in the
Montalivet region of France
