Welcome Rory & Spring Boat Show
Hello, All! I have just returned from the 2017 Spring Tortola boat show! Rory Petrilli joined me and flew from France just to attend this fabulous little show. For those who are not familiar, the boat shows we attend are quite a bit different than the public boat shows. These are private boat shows open to brokers in the industry. We get time on the boats to chat with the crew, owners and managers. In doing so, this allows us to better pair our guests with the right boat and crew!Part of this process is sampling fabulous food and beverage that the crew prepare for the guests to allow us to “quality control.” With that said, I must give a proper shout-out to the crew of the Lagoon 620-Sandiseas for providing plenty of champagne during our visit…afterall it was for “quality control purposes”…. All in all the Spring show was a wonderful opportunity to meet new crew and tour new boats. It is much smaller than other shows, which allowed for more time to chat and unwind. Additional updates….Some of you might have also noticed a familiar face is now a part of WLMS Charters. Rory Petrilli joins us as a Sailing Charter Specialist. She will be working with clientele in the European region as well as charters in the Windward and Leewards! If you have a moment, please visit her story at Rory's Bio . She will also be a guest blogger from time to time as she recalls funny tidbits of life living abroad, sailing in the South Pacific and of course her time living with us in Belize.
