Re. Staff Christmas Party
'Thanks very much for the wonderful day that we had on Saturday. It was a Christmas Party that will long be remembered. Even staff members that are usually tough to please expressed how much fun and enjoyment they received out of the day.
We were blessed with perfect weather and two great skippers who were very professional and knew exactly what they were doing.
From the moment we enquired about sailing, and for the duration of our day, we could ses that your aim was to make the day enjoyable and fun for us. Your relaxed and flexible approach ensured that everything sailed smoothly (pardon the pun).
We will definitely consider Sydney Harbour Escapes for any future work or private functions, and we have no hesitation in highly recommending your services.'
