Re: Updated Event: Amel Yacht Owners Rally - Martinique April 7 - April 13 - Sunday, 7 April 2019 #cal-invite


It really was a great time with lots of things provided by the sponsors. All of the sponsors want to do it again with the same or increased investment. The marina told me that they will sponsor a bus tour of Martinique next time.

Yes, agreed. We are so pleased to have been able to make it.

What a wonderful event and opportunity to meet Bill and so many other good folk we have been communicating with on the forum over the past 7 years from Australia.

In addition Island Pearl II won the lucky dip draw for one of Bill's extremely comprehensive yacht school Manuals last night.

What an excellent publication with such clear instructions and advice on every single aspect of maintaining and improving an Amel. Found it hard to put it down after dinner last night when I discovered it even covered so clearly a number of NMEA information accrdd tips we just happen to be grabling with right now in terms of linkage with OpenCPN.

Well done Bill and thank you all.

I would just like to say what a wonderful time Tracie & I had at last
night's Amel Rally/Mango Bay dinner!

Many thanks to Bill, Mango Bay & all of the sponsors who put on an
incredible feast & handed out some wonderful gifts.  I am only sorry
that I did not get to meet everyone there.

Tracie & I would like to make a trip to the L'Habitation Clement
grounds in the next few days if any of you are interested in sharing a
car with us.

I think is was a huge success & would think this is the truly the
'First' of many Amel Rally gatherings.  And it aint over yet!
