Thank you so much for your fabulous review! I do recall your lesson Mish, as we had loads of laughter after your initial nervousness diminished. You did an amazing job of overcoming your fears and taking in the delights of the waters at The Spit. Great job for you and we are super proud to be part of your learning curve on the water. We hope to see you again real soon.
