Hope all is well with you. Yes, the weather has been on and off but once again, we have made a statement in town – we ARE the talk of the town. Our
executive team couldn’t be more pleased. We’ve had a great response to the sail boat including industry press coverage. I will forward you a separate
email on the coverage. We are in the home stretch now with our final day and evening VIP reception. Let’s touch base next week for a debrief as we finalize the invoice, etc.

We had a wonderful time during our sailing experience on Dec. 2. I really want to thank you and the crew for being so flexible in changing our date for us. We were under a lot of stress due to the flight problems in getting to San Diego! The quiet calm sailing trip was a great team building event and met our expectations, All really enjoyed!

Yacht ‘America’ for a 90th birthday celebration…..approx. 70 guests. Afternoon sail with bar and snacks.
Thursday, November 04, 2010 12:23 PM To: Warren Allan Subject: Re: Did you have a wonderful trip?
Oh, yes! We did have a wonderful afternoon. The freshening breeze made for perfect sailing. We were amazed at how smoothly the crew navigated among all the boats on the bay coming close to get pictures of the America under full sail. Your Master of Ceremonies, Al, was a pleasant addition to the cruise. He made a good fuss over the Birthday Girl and kept us all entertained. Thank you so much for your time and effort on our behalf. We really enjoyed an exceptional cruise.

My apologies for the late notice but wanted to let you know that the GE Healthcare group had a great sailing experience with the Dennis Conner’s America’s Cup Experience. For several days all my folks were talking about the fun they had and the learning they received from the great crew. It was a beautiful day and the wind on the bay was perfect and made for some great racing. I have let my counterparts know about this great team building activity and am sure they will contact you for their functions.
Regarding the final bill, can you forward a copy to me for expensing.
Cheers to the Dennis Conner’s America’s Cup Experience

Heard from Areck that we had a great time on the yacht, too bad I didn’t get to go!!
I wanted to add some gratuity for the crew. Is there a credit card authorization form you could send me, or can you call me at your earliest convenience and I’ll give you a credit card over the phone? Then I would just need a receipt.
