Caribbean Sailing Vacations by Ed Hamilton

For when you return from your vacation

Welcome home! We hope you enjoyed your charter.

While all is fresh in your mind, would you please take a moment to complete this short questionnaire. Naturally we hope that everything was excellent but do please be honest if there were problems. Constructive criticism is always helpful and does not mean the vacation was not enjoyable.

We particularly welcome your original comments in addition to (or instead of) our YES/NO format.
