Hi Livia, been meaning to contact you for several reasons. One is that I like the idea of the interview with a crusier and can volunteer us - either seperately or together, depending what you'd prefer. I must admit that of the two of us i, Sarah, am much more likley to do an email questionnaire so you'll realistically get me or us, but unlikely to get Pip on her own!
On a seperate note, we are currently enraged by teh failure of the marina industry to be interested in what yachties/cruisers actually want, so we are pondering constructing somekind of survey/poll to gather info which various bodies (like the US SSCA or the UK CA) could use as lobby material. Given your experiences, what would you think about such a move? It may be much less necessary in the Americas (where we've never sailed) but the Med and North Sea coasts could really do with some consumer feedback.
