We have quoted Ken's letter in full. He chartered 'Genesis' in February 2009
Our first sailing charter was one of the most delightful weeks of our lives. Yes the Grenadines are lovely; the turquoise seas gorgeous, the palm-treed beaches enchanting, the villages quaint adn the people friendly. But to visit such a paradise onthe beautifully built adn immaculately maintained S/Y Genesis, in the exquisite company of Petr and Tracy Stejskal was divine.
While the wind and sea conditions did not inspire us to spend much time in the water, the weather gave us other benefits. Petr had the opportunity to demonstrate his superb seamanship and to give us exhilerating rides at high speed. His love of sailing shone in his face. And the memories of our time we had to spend with the lovely and vivacious Tracy will live with us for a long time.
The sumptuous cuisine provided by Tracy was a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. She has acquired a large and varied menu of dishes she excels at cooking and presenting. We ate like royalty!
Petr and Tracy are a great team. There is much to do on a boat and even more with guests. Petr takes the lead on sailing with Tracy as crew, while both Tracy and Petr look after the guests and maintain the habitat. They were always at work seamlessly preparing food, cleaning up after meals, housekeeping the boat and the guest quarters, and catering to our needs and wishes. We were pampered and spoiled, and we are not ashamed to admit 'we liked it.'
The only downside of the voyage is that any chance of us ever chartering a different boat has been lost, we just could not choose second best.
We wish you, Petr and Tracy, good health, safe passage, and much success in the future. Your new friends, Diana and Ken.
