I spent an evening with Escape Yachting last week and it was amazing. From the safety briefing to the end of the evening, Escape Yachting were terrific hosts. We had a beautiful boat, fabulous champagne - the evening was in conjunction with Lymington's brilliant wine shop, The Solent Cellar and Laurent Perrier. Overall, a wonderful evening. I can't wait for... More
